dc.description.abstract Energy is a vital and a decisive factor in any economy. The availability of energy has a great impact on the economic and social development. With the continuous increase in price paid for energy, there will be a substantial incentive for effective energy management. Therefore, energy management has to be considered as a core management process in any facility. The emphasis on energy conservation has therefore, to begin at the design stage and continue throughout the life cycle of the building project (design, construction, operation and maintenance). The energy efficiency of a facility can be evaluated by analysing the Passive environmental controls and Active environmental controls. The passive environmental controls are such as building orientation, shape and thermal properties of its envelope. The active environmental controls are such as air-conditioning, lighting, and plant and equipment. This study intends to investigate the measures taken during the design and construction stages with regard to the energy conservation and the operational performances of the high-rise office building projects. It also focus on the energy management processes in practice. The energy efficient building codes and other national and international benchmarking tools are used to evaluate the design and operational performances.
