Industry seeks to maximise energy performance in buildings

Industry seeks to maximise energy performance in buildings


 

The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) is planning a new research project aimed at examining the way that industry designs, constructs and operates non-domestic buildings. The research is based on evidence of a “gap” between the expected performance of buildings and how they perform once delivered. The project will look at how companies already address the issue of building performance and identify barriers for the industry to overcome. Speaking on Wednesday 6 January, UK-GBC CEO Julie Hirigoyen said: “Huge cost, carbon and productivity benefits can be gained through a closer focus on the performance of buildings as we design, construct and operate them.”
