dc.description.abstract© 2017 Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to establish links between Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ) factors that affect occupant productivity and Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) building rating system. The paper analyses the current state of GSAS using a desktop study, survey and brainstorming session organised in a workshop with GSAS Certified Green Professionals (CGP). Methodology/design/approach: The study was conducted in three steps. First, a comprehensive literature review was conducted to identify IEQ factors that influence occupant productivity in offices. The second step was a desktop analysis of current GSAS building rating system to identify criteria and submittals that may help to increase occupant productivity. It was followed by a facilitated workshop of GSAS CGPs that included a survey and a brainstorming session to highlight the current state of GSAS rated building performances on occupant productivity. The workshop was attended by 41 CGPs in Doha, Qatar. Findings: The paper highlighted that GSAS needs to be updated to increase occupant productivity in GSAS rated buildings. A periodic post-occupancy survey in GSAS buildings should be mandated to ensure better occupant productivity. The paper also presented various methods to make GSAS rated buildings more occupant-friendly. Originality/value: This study is the first study to analyse green building guidelines in the context of occupant productivity, especially in Qatar.en
