Abstract

Malaysia has inherited numbers of historic government buildings from the past that have high historical and architectural value. These buildings have important roles in the administration of government matters and should perform as intended to support the organization’s goals and enhance building occupant satisfaction. However, these buildings have issues associated with functional building performance criteria, for example, there are inconsistencies in the elements and criteria of building performance evaluation. Some of the other pertinent issues from the previous study were constrained by heritage regulations that effect on several requirements of building occupants such as space arrangement and conflict in balancing energy efficiency and occupants’ thermal. A critical review of the literature has been carried out for the purpose of identifying the criteria. Literature review reveals that there is a need to review criteria in building performance evaluation; mainly due to variety of methodologies used in building performance evaluation and an effective and standardized way to quantify criteria of building performance is not sufficiently developed. To sustain the building efficiency, building performance evaluation is important to improve performance issues in historic government buildings. This paper highlights the construct items of functional building performance criteria as the initial framework for the development of an assessment tool. The assessment tool has a significant role to improve functional building performance of historic government buildings.
