Construction industry has been criticized as the industry producing high pollution. Especially, a newly built house is often torn down and renovated the walls in the interior space at the life cycle stage of a housing project when buyers are using and maintaining, due to distinct customer demand and preference. Structural walls and beam columns are even randomly drilled for the piping requirement of air conditioner pipelines to result in public danger. It could be attributed to the regulation of interior environmental decoration without safety check in Taiwan and some interior designers, in order to strive for cases in the high competition, corresponding to customers’ demands for changing interior patterns. In addition to newly built houses, the sale and transfer of second-hand houses is another thought for the renovation work of interior space environmental decoration to disturb the life of neighbors and seriously damage the environment. Accordingly, Delphi method, Analytical hierarchy process, and Utility theory are applied in this study to establish an AHP expected utility based evaluation model for management performance on interior environmental decoration, aiming to provide the safety management for interior environmental decoration and reduce the management review for energy consumption and environmental protection.
