Abstract: This research study is an evaluation of Green Mark criteria by building professionals undertaking the Green Mark Manager course. The objectives of this study are to analyze the current Green Mark version 3 criteria, evaluate the degree of differences and consistency of the Green Mark score made by the building professionals who had undergone the Green Mark Manager course and the area of criteria, which may affect the way the scoring is being carried out and lastly, evaluate the recommendations made by the building professionals who had undergone the Green Mark Manager course and the effectiveness or cost effectiveness in achieving Green Mark score. The assessment report done by the building professionals would be reviewed. The report is divided into five specific areas, which are energy efficiency, water efficiency, environmental protection, indoor environment quality and other green features. It includes the base points and improvement of score to enhance Green Mark points. A case study on two commercial buildings was used to illustrate the information. In the findings, both buildings’ results suggest that the existing design for energy efficiency, water efficiency and other green features is poor whereas design for environmental protection and indoor air quality is acceptable. This reflects that the current design emphasis is on environmental protection and indoor air quality. In conclusion, Green Mark Rating System is clear and objective with the criteria for water efficiency, indoor air quality and other green features. However, based on the results obtained, it suggests that the criteria for energy efficiency and environmental protection may require clearer definitions.
