This paper reviewed literature on improvement strategy to develop an improvement strategy model to identify and eliminate perceived waste and inefficient facilities in existing office buildings for sustainability in developing countries. Emphasis is placed on the multi-stakeholder/interdisciplinary approach in which each professional in the built environment add discipline-specific data to a single shared model, and “bottom-up” improvement policy formulation and subsequent implementation approach, which would stem from occupants and property managers. Many writers have criticized the ignorance of end-user requirements during the construction briefing, highlighting the communications gap between the end-users, designers and owners.
