Green building is an inevitable trend in the construction industry which deeply affects the social development of the economy, environment and a series of industries. There is practical significance for the multidimensionally balanced development of green buildings. A model for multi-objective assessment of green building is devel-oped under three dimensions: Objective, Professional and Time (OPT) according to the green building definition. The OPT coordinate system was built up based on the scoring centroid system of both the China Green Building Labelling scheme (GBL) and the Singapore Green Mark (GM) by the introduction of the Coefficient of Varia-tion and Moment of Inertia. Both these frameworks are restructured based on a case study of a practical project in Chongqing which had achieved the highest GBL and GM awards. Results show that GBL distributes its scores more evenly while GM concentrates on energy saving with greater diversity in land supply and building oper-ations (normalized coefficients of variation of 0.435 and 0.350). The project’s com-pliance coefficients are 1.27 and 0.31 under GBL and GM respectively indicating its higher degree of compliance with the GM framework. The developed model provides multitarget-oriented guidelines for green building design, assessment and stand-arddevelopment.
