The building is one of construction sector that consumes high energy and contributes to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission. Many researchers and academics attempt to reduce the negative impact of the building by introducing alternative technology through the internet of things (IoT) and building management system (BMS). The research aims to examine components related to the workspace of building and evaluate the cost and energy usage. The study combining quantitative and qualitative approaches through energy simulation, life-cycle cost approach, and in-depth interview. The results show three components from lighting, cooling, and office equipment that can be quantified. Every component consists of equipment to tailor the concept of a smart integrated workspace. The energy per square meter from proposed concept generates 48.36 kWh per square meter or lower than the current design. Overall it requires 203,586,240 rupiahs or 18% more efficient to the current layout.
