Ecobuild 2014: Comparing design with actual energy use to understand and close the performance gap & inform future design decisions
Presentation from Sarah Cary, Sustainable Developments Executive, British Land at Ecobuild 2014 comparing design with actual energy use to understand and close the performance gap and inform future design decisions.
To ensure design objectives are met the industry must embed a circular approach where building evaluation is used to measure and optimize asset performance and feed the lessons learnt back into design. Building performance data will identify the 'gap' and inform subsequent projects resulting in the conclusion of one project leading to the beginning of the next. This session will provide practical lessons learnt from the performance gap and show how improvements can be applied to future projects.
