Abstract: An assessment framework for evaluating office buildings was developed based on the Total Building Performance (TBP) concept and is underpinned by seven performance mandates namely: Thermal Performance, Visual Performance, Acoustic Performance, Indoor Air Quality, Building Integrity and Safety and Security. A detailed expert survey of 90 professionals in the building industry identified 39 basic attributes and 36 features categorized within the mandates to be significant using the one sample t test. Pair-comparison analysis using the Kendall coefficient of agreement showed that Safety and Security was rated the most important mandate relative to the others. The test of significance of the Kendall coefficient also showed that there was consensus among the experts. A non linear performance scale was proposed for scoring the performance indicators with points deducted for failure to meet the minimum requirements. Lastly, an overall TBP index was derived from the amalgamation of the weighted scores of the performance mandates and the corresponding performance indicators.
