Sustainable construction is one of the foundations of sustainable development, and its realization in the city of Tehran, which includes a significant share of construction and production of artificial environment in Iran, is doubly important. In the meantime, urban management as a custodian of the realization of sustainable urban development has an important and irreplaceable role. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to authoritatively explain the management challenges of sustainable construction in Tehran. For this purpose, combined methods and strategies such as content analysis and CODAS analysis have been used. What was obtained from the data analysis showed that Tehran's urban management is facing two categories of procedural and contextual challenges on the way to achieving sustainable urban construction, which includes a total of 14 challenges, the most important of which is the confrontation with the "managerial non-social organization", which has evolved for decades. This issue has increasingly confirmed the importance of good urban governance in Tehran and shows that without comprehensive, motivating and promising strategies, it will be impossible to face more progressive challenges such as the integration of the urban management organization, Resilience enhancement and stakeholder awareness in the future. Finally, the identified challenges are presented in the form of a conceptual model.
