UK-GBC Task Group Report: Delivering Building Performance
Examining industry approaches, tools and behaviours, this Task Group focused on how to maximise building performance, not just in energy terms, but also other aspects of performance that impact both the building user and the wider environment.
The performance in operation, of the vast majority of our buildings, is simply not commensurate with the challenge of meeting our carbon targets. It also damages our ability as an industry to deliver other positive sustainability outcomes – including providing spaces that enable health, wellbeing and productivity for occupiers.
This Task Group has sought to highlight some simple process improvements that design, construction and property professionals, as well as occupiers, might adopt to deliver buildings which perform more predictably in operation. These findings have been primarily informed by interviews with UK-GBC members, in addition to desk-based research.
