The idea of smart buildings had come out way back in the 1980s. However, in Malaysia, the tendency for smart building development still considered low. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the implementation and workability of smart buildings in Malaysia. This study had extended into four objectives to allow further understanding on the aspect of technologies, benefits, challenges, and solution that related to smart buildings Malaysia. Primary data and secondary data will be applied for this research. Online questionnaire is distributed to the targeted respondents in the areas of Petaling district. The researcher is using IBM Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 25 in order to process and analyse the data which are collected from the respondents. It will result the useful data automatically after the several data analysis methods such as Frequency Distribution Method, Friedman Test, Measurement of Central Tendency, Relative Important Index (RII), and Multiple Response Analysis Method. The results collected via these analysis methods are tabulated and discussed reflecting the current tendency of smart buildings implementation and their workability phenomenon in Malaysia. At the end, the recap of this study based on each research objective has linked the information in literature review and the result analysed through questionnaire survey providing the consistency of both findings. Next, series of recommendations are formed for the suggestion in improving the findings of research objectives in future work. A logical, relevant, and feasible recommendation can act as a prompt to action for readers.
