BSRIA has launched its new Building Performance Evaluation in Non-Domestic Buildings Guide – an introduction to the tests and methods in non-domestic buildings – which is available to purchase from the BSRIA bookshop.
This guide is a general introduction to Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) that explains why it is important and how it can be carried out. BPE is a key element of the BSRIA Soft Landings process to help deliver a building that meets the performance as expected and deliver an effective and efficient building. The guide focuses on new, existing and refurbished non-domestic buildings and aims to inform those involved in the design, construction, operation and/or management of a building about the current performance.
The guide discusses some of the tests and methods that can be included when reviewing building performance to provide information on:
- building fabric.
- building services and operating strategies.
- energy use.
- handover and commissioning processes.
- occupant satisfaction.
