Abstract

Timber traditional houses can pose a significant image of Malaysian built environment heritage. It is then crucial for professional to undertake the responsibility in ensuring the timber houses still in a fair condition. In judging the building condition, it is good to have a more concrete evaluation, so that the reliable recommendation can be made within short period of time. The Prioritize Ranking System is deem fit for this purpose. The streamline methodology of the system is using the numerical coding for the survey pro forma. From the prioritize ranking, the data is then used as to foresee the condition of the house; either dilapidated, fair or good. Furthermore, the system enable the surveyor to identify the severity index of each defects and list the element to be repaired in order of priority. The system is tested to the small-scale timber traditional house namely Telapak Naning. The finding of the survey is found true in reflecting the current state of the house.
