A Decision-Making Model for the Asian Intelligent Building Index
MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents a multi-criteria decision-making model to evaluate the sustainable performances of intelligent buildings based on the Asian IB index, which is recommended by the Asian Institute of Intelligent Buildings. To undertake this task, this paper first determines current evaluation method adopted in the Asian IB index and demonstrates its unreliability in calculation. A decision-making model called AIBChoice is then introduced as an alternative approach to IB assessments. The AIBChoice model can be used by either contractors or clients when it is necessary to evaluate the sustainable designs and select the best solution for proposed IB projects based on the Asian IB index.
