There are many material planning and control systems in use in the construction industry but general focus has not been on the reduction of construction waste which adversely affects the environment. Creating an environment friendly system should be able to make adequate use of the internet. The pwpose of this study is to develop an environment-friendly material planning and control system for managing construction materials. The study used case diagrams and a MVC Model in designing the web-based platform for planning and control of construction materials. The study revealed that using a web-based system assessed via. the internet can help store building materials data thereby reducing the manual/paper-based system of planning and controlling construction materials. The system been environmentally-friendly helps to reduce waste during construction by ensuring the right calculation of quantities needed and delivery at the right time. In conclusion, the web-based system reduces the need for stockpiling which would have Ullllecessarily put pressure on the depletion of natural resources. The study recommended the high use of the internet to achieve an environment-friendly system in managing the crucial nature of construction materials and processes in the construction industry.
