MalaysiaGBC – Research Paper on Better Places for People

This project identifies design features that are known to have positive impacts on the health, wellbeing, and productivity of office building occupants and relating those back to the physical features of buildings and employee perceptions. This study looks at the performance of two office buildings one green and the other non-green but both fitted out to a green interior specification. The findings indicate that the existing buildings shell and environmental performance, namely the cooling thermal performance and daylighting were the two main factors that affected the comfort levels for the employees day to day work in the workspace.
