In the aim of developing new methods to ensure construction quality and improve the living conditions of inhabitants. Awareness of extent for innovative techniques, tools and building materials is needed. This in view of their integration into new projects with an eco-construction spirit that leads to buildings and neighbourhoods that are less polluting and that can serve sustainable development. Relationship between the sustainable and comfortable built environment with intelligent lifestyle, can be ensured through the adopted technologies, but also the passive architectural devices and materials used.

In this sense, we verify in this paper if conceptors ensure comfort and energetic efficiency for their projects, this is by using two surveys. The first survey is intended for researchers to get their opinions about the question of environmental approach in architecture. These opinions are grouped and synthesized, then completed by another survey conducted with some actors of building such as designers, engineers, promoters and owners of projects, on the performance of their buildings and the environmental approach followed by them.

It is then the impact of a good mastery in this field by doing trainings and providing materials resources, this about intelligence on the building’s energy consumption that has to do with sustainable building and also to ensure both comfortable and sustainable living without negative consequences on the energy performance and the environmental quality of the area.
