  • Influence of humidity and temperature on the deterioration of the building
    • Pages: 590 - 600
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 590-600, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study the influence of humidity and temperature on the deterioration of the building stones of the Imedghassen Mausoleum located in Batna, Algeria. Design/methodology/approach Thermo-hygro buttons were used to control the microclimate of the monument (humidity and temperature). Findings The obtained results on the variations in temperature, humidity and also the dew point enabled the confirmation of the relationship between these factors and the origin of the stone deterioration and the degradation state of the monument. Research limitations/implications Scientific research approach in this work is to find a relationship between the factors of degradation and the state of conservation of the monument, using, for the first time, thermos-hygro buttons in situ to follow with great precision the microclimate. Practical implications These results can be extrapolated to all new and old houses having the same environment. Social implications The use of thermo-hygro buttons as an in-situ logger that can monitor and control humidity and temperature (microclimate) is of great importance for the preservation of cultural heritage monuments. Originality/value Thermo-hygro buttons are used for the first time to monitor and control the temperature and humidity on site. Their use makes a great contribution in the field of control degradation of building materials by moisture and temperature.

  • Can self-evaluation measure the effect of IEQ on productivity' A
           review of literature
    • Pages: 601 - 621
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 601-621, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this literature review is to investigate the reliability of self-evaluation as a method for measuring the effect(s) of indoor environment quality (IEQ) on the productivity of office workers. The aim of this review is to identify the various constraints to its adequacy in measuring productivity. Design/methodology/approach Thirty studies were selected from peer-reviewed sources and reviewed on their method of measuring productivity. These studies used self-evaluation (questionnaires or interview) as the sole method of measuring the effect of IEQ on productivity/performance. Findings This review provides insight on the insufficiencies and biases prevalent in self-evaluation. Various issues that compromised the reliability of self-evaluation results in an office environment were discussed. It was concluded that self-evaluation is not reliable and does not accurately measure occupant productivity. Research limitations/implications This study has been a review of past studies and their findings. Further studies that will provide empirical evidence are required to solely test the reliability of self-evaluation in measuring productivity and the effect of factors such as IEQ on it. Practical implications The paper calls for further debate on occupant productivity measurement and how the various factors that affect it can be quantified into measurable entities. Originality/value This paper fulfils an identified need to revisit the technique of self-evaluation as a method for measuring occupant productivity.

  • Are green offices better than conventional'
    • Pages: 622 - 637
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 622-637, August 2017.
      Purpose Global warming and climate change is one of the biggest issues facing humanity in this century; its effects are felt on the highest peaks of Mount Everest to the low-lying islands in the India Ocean. This century marked the highest amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted, breaking records of the past 650,000 years, and we have pushed the climate to “a point of no return”. Much of the climate contribution has been linked to humanity’s thirst for higher living standards and lifestyle, which has led to higher consumerism, depletion of earth’s resources, production of massive waste and carbon emissions. Fast forward from the sustainability agenda of Brundtland set in 1987 and the increasing demand for energy consumption to cater for the current global inhabitants, many “green” efforts have been taken by the building industry to reduce the overall environmental impact. This purpose of this study is to compare energy performance of a conventional office building with a green certified building. Design/methodology/approach This paper tries to bridge the performance gap by comparing measured operational energy consumption and carbon emission of Green Building Index (GBI)-certified office buildings in Kuala Lumpur, to determine whether “green buildings” are performing as intended in reducing their environmental impact. Findings This paper highlighted and compared operational energy consumption and carbon emissions of a GBI-certified office with a conventional office building in Malaysia. The paper also discusses the performance gap issue and its common causes, and aims to compare predicted energy and operational energy performance of buildings. Originality/value Initiatives such as “green” or “sustainable” design have been at the forefront of architecture, while green assessment tools have been used to predict the energy performance of a building during its operational phase. There is still a significant performance gap between predicted or simulated energy measurements to actual operational energy consumption. The need to measure actual performance of these so-called “green buildings” is important to investigate if there is a performance gap and whether these buildings can perform better than conventional buildings. Understanding why the performance gap occurs is a step in reducing actual and predicted energy performance in buildings.

  • Data quality control for survey instrument of office investors in
           rationalising green office building investment in Kuala Lumpur by the
           application of Rasch analysis
    • Pages: 638 - 657
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 638-657, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to attempt to verify the quality of the survey instrument of office investors in rationalising green office building investment in the city of Kuala Lumpur using the Rasch measurement method. It investigates whether the quality of the data obtained from the survey is statistically acceptable and aims to ensure that the scales used are based on the same measurement model and fit with the Rasch model. Design/methodology/approach In achieving this objective, a questionnaire survey was developed consisting of six sections. Some 394 questionnaires were distributed, and in total, 106 responses were received from office investors who own and lease office buildings in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. The data obtained from this survey were entered into Rasch software, and the analysis aims to consider three main parameters, specifically: point measure correlation 0.32 < x < 0.8; outfit mean squared 0.5 < y < 1.5; and outfit z-standard −2 < z < 2. It also provides a separable or independent measurement instrument for the parameters of the research object. Findings The analysis performed using the Rasch model confirmed that all items in the questionnaire construct were statistically reliable and valid. The Rasch analysis consists of, namely, the summary statistics; item unidimensionality to provide interval measures of item endorsements and fit statistics on persons involved; and items for further investigation. Unidimensionality, as a pre-requisite to the Rasch analysis, provides statistics on whether the items are on the same latent variable intended by the instrument. The results were also supported by Cronbach’s alpha at 0.91 which showed excellent reliability for person data. The results showed that the summary statistics, unidimensionality and item fit analysis were excellent. Originality/value This paper introduces the application of the Rasch analysis as a provision for a new dimension and technique in examining data reliability and validity of the instrument.

  • Modelling energy consumption behaviour using “energy culture” concept
           for student accommodations in Malaysian public universities
    • Pages: 658 - 683
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 658-683, August 2017.
      Purpose In working towards a sustainable campus of public universities, energy consumption behaviour assessment is one of the several issues that requires attention by the facilities manager. Information on energy consumption behaviour is needed to determine potential energy savings. The purpose of this study is to assess energy consumption behaviour for student accommodations in Malaysian public universities. Design/methodology/approach This study focuses on developing energy consumption behaviour models (ECBMs) and assesses the potential energy savings. The “energy culture” framework consolidated with multiple regression analysis is used to strengthen the development of ECBMs. A self-administrated survey involving 1,009 respondents in selected public universities was carried out. Findings The result shows that five factors from the energy culture framework contribute to energy consumption behaviour, namely, building regulation, environmental concern, education, social marketing and direct factors (device and activities). These factors are included in the model for predicting energy consumption levels. The results show that there is a 78 per cent difference in energy consumption between the observed and predicted data. Practical implications This study indicates a high potential energy saving among students of Malaysian public universities. Originality/value The model was tested against the overall students among Malaysian public universities. In future, the model can be tested within hostel accommodations. The present assessment revealed the potential energy saving among the hostel buildings and sets the target regarding which building has a potential to reduce energy. It also helps the facilities managers to come up with strategies for programmes and energy policy in public universities.

  • A review on indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and energy consumption in
           building based on occupant behavior
    • Pages: 684 - 695
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 684-695, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to review the concept of occupant behavior and its relation with indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and building energy consumption. The behavior is referred to any direct or indirect action, which is selected by an occupant to manage the unpleasant indoor environmental conditions. Thermal comfort, indoor air quality, aural comfort and visual comfort are the key factors of IEQ evaluation. Human behavior significantly interacts with energy consumption in buildings. Design/methodology/approach Each IEQ parameter was reviewed separately and the overall IEQ acceptance was considered. In addition, this paper reviews the methods that were used to measure and simulate the IEQ factors, energy consumption and human behavior. Finally, the lack of knowledge in this field is based on the review demonstrated. Findings Most studies considered one or two IEQ factors to evaluate IEQ acceptance in buildings. Further, weakness of simulating all IEQ factors at the same time is the deficiency of IEQ simulation, based on reviews. In the case of occupant behavior simulation, the uncertainly of human psychological parameter is a drawback to predict behavior. Originality/value Energy consumption, occupant health and productivity are related to IEQ. Human behavior affects building energy consumption directly. Simulation software and methods can predict IEQ factors and human behavior. Therefore, reviewing the existing studies is critical to find new methods for measuring and simulating IEQ, energy consumption and human behavior in buildings.

  • Key determinants of waste separation intention: empirical application of
    • Pages: 696 - 708
      Abstract: Facilities, Volume 35, Issue 11/12, Page 696-708, August 2017.
      Purpose This study aims to identify the key determinants of waste separation intention among the students in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Design/methodology/approach This study adopted the theory of planned behaviour (TPB) as the fundamental framework. The key determinants of waste separation behaviour are attitude, subjective norm (SN) and perceived behavioural control. An elicitation survey has been conducted to explore the students’ beliefs relative to waste separation behaviour. The empirical data collected were analysed using structural equation modelling (SEM) assisted by SmartPLS software. Findings The result shows that only two determinants are significant towards intention, attitude and perceived behavioural control, while SN is not. The results of the study are significant to the organisation, as an identification of the determinants that influence waste separation intention contributes to a more focused waste separation programme aligned to Malaysia’s objective towards a sustainable developing country. Originality/value There are few studies on solid waste separation compared to food waste and industrial waste separation. The authors focus on the identification of the key determinants of solid waste separation intention among students. This study serves as an initial attempt to adopt the TPB in solid waste separation context, hence contributing to existing literature.
