  • Abstract

    Assessment of buildings is one of the main components that are essential to assess the condition of the building. Without evaluation, it is difficult to determine the current condition of a heritage building, so failure to check can contribute to future assets. The objective of this study is to assess the level of defect condition in a heritage building. This study has selected nine buildings of the museum as a place of study. The location of the museum building is located in three states of Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang. All of the museum buildings have been implemented by using Building Defect Assessment (BDA) and used as a survey tool to assess the level of disability at museum building. Defects of each element in the building of the museum have been recorded.  As a result of the BDA suggests that score full points used to provide the level of evaluating the overall condition of the museum building is good, and the need for action to maintenance requirements such as monitoring, repair, a replacement for preventing defects or serious damage.
