Evaluating the building performance and occupant comfort in domestic and non-domestic buildings, both new-build and refurbishments, across a variety of life cycle stages. This evaluation uses monitoring and feedback to detect issues in operation, construction and fine tune the building to meet its design targets and close the performance gap between as designed, as built and in use energy performance.
Understanding the effects of design and handover process in the in-use performance of a low carbon public building.
Understanding the interaction between passive design and low carbon technologies in the in-use performance of a low carbon affordable housing.
Widening our understanding of real energy performance in civic buildings.
Closing the performance gap of an award winning exemplar of sustainable public building design through a TSB-funded Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) study.
Understanding the in-operation performance of a building design that achieved three key metrics - a BREEAM Outstanding Rating, an EPC rating of A (10) and near-zero embodied carbon.
Closing the gap between design aspiration and as-built performance in a Code level 5 housing development in the UK.
Understanding the 'real' energy consumption in low carbon houses.
DECoRuM® is a novel GIS-based bottom-up model for counting, costing and reducing energy-related CO2 emissions from existing UK dwellings.The working of the model has been demonstrated by applying it to a case study in the city of Oxford.
