This paper examines the criteria and attributes for assessing defects in a heritage building. The goal of this paper is to solve element type for building defects by using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). A survey questionnaire was develop based on the identified criteria and attributes of defect for a heritage building in Malaysia. The survey questionnaire was administered to consultants, academics, and contractors. A total of 20 expert panels was selected to determine the element of the defect in building performance. The sensitivity analysis of alternative ratings in respect to difference pairwise comparisons of the criteria and attribute was carried out. By changing one element in the pairwise comparison matrix, the process of defect element is monitored thus enabling possible improvements. An overall ranking of the Hierarchy priorities of criteria and attribute was a result of the AHP analysis. The result of the research is weightage for each criterion and its respective attributes. The criteria and attributes will be used as elements to develop a strategic heritage building performance procedure in Malaysia.
