Green technologies that can be incorporated into buildings to make them sustainable and energy efficient and conservative are being adopted into construction in developing countries. The behavior of the occupants in a work place can accelerate or slow the process of adoption of these technologies. This paper aimed at identifying the behavior of occupants towards the use of water and energy consumption in a workplace environment. The data for this research was obtained from questionnaires distributed to the occupants of the workplace and the findings showed that occupants did not maximize the uses of the available utilities, and occupants were relatively knowledgeable of the green building technology and alternatives available. It was recommended that education of occupants was a good way to utilize the available resources in a manner that will better improve the comfort and durability of the facilities and even transform the user’s behavior regarding green buildings
