Intelligent building is gaining access to the construction industry all over the world inrecent times. Building functionality and the need for occupant comfort has been themajor drive toward advent of intelligent Buildings. In the light of this, there is a need tocarry out continuous evaluation of performance of the building to ensure value formoney. In this study therefore, post-occupation building managers at different levels oftypes of buildings were censored within the scope of the following parameters; awarenesson current state of practice in office intelligent building application, the level ofsatisfaction of managers and the users of intelligent buildings’ performance, effectivenessof the security system and access control in building and performance enhancementmeasures to be adopted and factors that influences effective performance of intelligentbuilding accessories. Survey method was used with the aid of questionnaire the resultantdata was analyse using relative agreement index (RAI), Mann-Whitney U-Test,Pearsons’s Chi-square test and Student’s T-test. The study presented factors thatinfluences integration of automated accessory in building and their performance,effectiveness of security system and access control, conventional automation applicationin building products among others. The study recommend constructive innovativeapproach to intelligent building management, strategic plan should be instituted inmaintenance operation, proactive management building accessory, and collaborativestake holder inclusive management, as panacea to forestalling negative attendant consequence of facility negligence in intelligent building.
