Abstract: Intelligence provides flexibility to control situations favorably with an aptitude to change according to the demand of any situation. Similar analogy can be brought to buildings too. Today several buildings have come across in our country. However, the intelligency of these buildings in comparison to conventional buildings is questionable. Due to the lack of commonly accepted methods and relevant supporting data, an assessment of overall performance of the intelligent buildings (IBs) is difficult to be carried out. Survey/study of such IBs and conventional buildings 1 has given some fruitful results to determine the efficiency of workers and energy efficiency of the building. In a similar manner, users' response, brought together through survey, has been evaluated for performance assessment for IB and non-IB comparative study in Indian context. Definition of IB, its benefits, adopted survey methodology and analysis of the same has been presented in this article.
