Operation and maintenance (O&M) benchmarking network
How do you measure your building's performance?
The BSRIA O&M benchmarking network provides up-to-date information and benchmark data in buildings across a range of industries. Data is broken down by type, size and geographical location of building for easier comparison. We also run regular events and seminars on key industry topics.
Building operators join our network because it helps them make like-for-like comparisons with their peers and identify areas to:
reduce maintenance costs
We run a regular series of events covering key topics for building operators as well as specialist interest groups for people operating similar types of buildings.

Measuring occupant wellbeing - 2nd December 2016
The importance of occupant well-being has attracted more attention recently as it is now generally accepted that if an occupant's well-being reduces, productivity will typically reduce as well. So workplaces should not only be environmentally friendly but also friendly to their users.
All descriptions of well-being indicate that it is more than just the lack of negative situations, such as illness, but it also includes positive features such as happiness. Well-being is a dynamic state of mind which helps an individual to thrive and happily perform to their optimum ability.
BSRIA is proud to provide services to the industry to help to ensure well-being is maintained in buildings. This event helped you better understand how to track and improve well-being in your buildings.
