  • Building Performance Feedback and Post Occupancy Evaluation

    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.
