Abstract: Total building performance (TBP) has been increasingly gaining awareness and more people are beginning to accept it. However, it is has been observed that where buildability is concerned, the TBP mandates are seldom taken into consideration, especially in Singapore. In this research, the focus is to study the relationship between buildability and the TBP mandates when they are incorporated together. In order to carry out this study, a model adopted from a workers’ dormitories development project located in the western part of Singapore was used as a control point. The breakdown of the buildability scores in the code was observed. Thereafter, the TBP mandates’ guidelines, namely, thermal performance and building integrity performance were incorporated into the base model and the recomputed buildability score was reassessed. After the incorporation of the TBP guidelines, it was found that the thermal performance mandate yielded a negative relationship whereas for the building integrity performance mandate, it yielded a positive result. The different relationships occurred due to the different aspects of the model that needed to be changed to adhere to the guidelines. Ultimately, it goes to show that the incorporation of certain guidelines for any one of the six TBP mandates will yield different results depending on the situation. In conclusion, it appears that there is no strong statistical evidence from the analysis to suggest that the TBP concept has a significant relationship with buildability.
