This study followed triple bottom line of sustainability to enhance building design (social, environmental and economic performance) to justify the research hypothesis. Thus study focused on Intelligent Building (IB) (as case of common accepted “economic” performance of building). Furthermore, study highlights needs in practice and gap in research to improve the level of user comfort (as case of “social” performance as well as “environmental” performance of building) in future IB design. Finally, study proposed a conceptual IB design framework to improving level of user comfort with “sustainable” energy efficient strategy. To validate the framework study within a novel group decision making session and steps try to establish proposed conceptual framework. The final proposed framework is accepted with the professional evolved with high research power.
