Full description

Despite genuine intentions to develop efficient homes and other residential buildings, the industry is still missing the mark. Recent research from academia and industry has shown that buildings do not always perform in the way that was originally intended. This results in inefficiencies in energy performance, and occupant dissatisfaction. Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) is the process of evaluating how a building performs and can be carried out on both new and existing buildings.

This guide is intended to support the industry by explaining how to use BPE to understand how homes and other residential buildings are performing, and to investigate and address these issues. It is a general introduction to BPE, and explains why it is important and how it can be carried out. It is aimed at clients, designers, developers, contractors, housing associations and social landlords, to improve their understanding about BPE and how they can benefit from it.
