The purpose of this paper is to identify the factors influencing use of spaces in public training institutes (PTIs). Most of the PTI buildings are motivated by social welfare or to provide services to the public as it is one of a government's responsibilities rather than a profit-making entity. Due to several incidents involving PTI building management weaknesses over the past few years, the government has taken a serious view on the space management for PTI buildings which are not only related to property management but also on space management efficiency. Therefore, the main objective that must be achieved in this study to find out the factors influence the use of space in PTIs. The author conduct literature reviews from a variety of text sources in relation to the factors influencing inefficient use of space. Afterwards, a qualitative content analysis has been conducted to determine the factors that contribute to the inefficient use of space. The results show that there are eight factors that influence the use of space in which five of them are factors that greatly influence the use of that space. These five factors are user requirement factor, organization factor, work environmental factor, spaces factor and technology development factor. Due to the application of Movement Control Order (MCO), the author was unable to conduct the field survey and only depends on the secondary data sources. The findings have confirmed that the user requirement factor, which is still a key factor in INSPEN. This result will help INSPEN overcome more efficient use of space in the future.
