Full description

Despite genuine intentions to develop efficient buildings, the construction 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 address issues of inefficiency and user dissatisfaction. 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, constructors and facilities managers, to improve their understanding about BPE and how they can benefit from it.
