Building Condition Assessment (BCA) is the assessment done on a building to rate the condition by assessing the defects present, determining the risks if the structure is left in its original condition without maintenance work and finding out the maintenance work that need to be done in order to preserve the building in its working condition. BCA is executed by comparing information which include the data that had been measured, comments on the structural condition either with or without defect and interpretation of the condition of the deformity present. These information were gathered during the preliminary in-situ investigation which was done to determine the masonry textures, decay patterns and the accountability of the materials and structural elements. This paper is focus on implementing the BCA in heritage building in Malaysia. Thus, in this study, the BCA was done in a heritage building in Johor Bharu which is the Dato' Abdullah jaafar building. The objective of this study in the end is to develop a rating system to be used as an identification of the defects present according to the priority of maintenance needed. It is also to identify the applicability of existing BCA on heritage buildings. Furthermore, to find out the material used on the heritage building As for the findings of this project, it was found that the existing BCA can be applied in the process of heritage building inspection. Next, the chemical composition of the existing material of the Dato' Abdullah Jaafar building was found. Furthermore, the main conclusion is that the overall rating of the building managed to be obtained based from data gathered through the BCA process done where the building was rated with rating 3.
