Abstract: Facility management today has evolved from the traditional basic facility caretaking to a profession that requires one that helps the organisation to achieve strategic target and objectives. However, the expanding role of facility managers would mean that there is a need to revise the tools and systems available to him in carrying out his daily operations. One such possibility is to explore the potential integration of the various building systems which has traditionally been monitored and controlled with a segregated and fragmented approach. The purpose of this dissertation is then to research on the effectiveness of adopting an integrated building control system and generate further research interest in this area. The approach taken for this study was to conduct a comprehensive literature review followed by a survey of local practitioners in the field of facility management to understand their perspective of adopting such a system. However, the findings in this study have reflected the lack of enthusiasm and support amongst the facility managers for adopting such a building technology which would require further investigation. In addition, there were insufficient statistical evident to demonstrate the limitations of using the existing fragmented building control systems in facilities management and how adopting an integrated building control system could help to overcome the challenges faced by facility managers. Nonetheless, recommendations for the considerations to the local building have been derived from the survey findings despite the latter limitations in producing a substantial conclusion.
