In developing new sustainable design, low carbon emission design was an important parameter needs to be considering in the design. Furthermore, rapid development in the world had caused increasing carbon dioxide emission that affect the world environment. Carbon emission analysis has been produced in this study specifically for two types of double storey houses. This study focused on structural elements of the building, i.e. beam, column and slab. An environmental factor was the main parameter that was calculated to determine the amount of carbon emission. This paper carried out comprative analyses of carbon emission by three different types of alternative concrete materials that are normal concrete, fly ash concrete and blast furnace slag concrete. The comparison was made to determine the lowest carbon emission for the proposed double storey houses. This study will develop new criteria in designing sustainable reinforced concrete structure in term of low carbon emission design.
