Abstract

This paper seeks to address the lack of a Technology provision evaluation in buildings. A Technological Performance Assessment framework has been developed that defines the comparative quality and merits of a buildings’ technical infrastructure to inform investment and/or occupation. The framework development stems from a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project between KSBC PLC (the industrial sponsor), Innovate UK (the Government sponsor), and UCL (the academic partner). The assessment of technology supply and distribution is carried out by several methods. KSBC’s experience in technical site assessment, technical systems costing models, and client requirement for technical support were used to assess eight case study office buildings in London. The assessment framework was validated through focus group method including industry experts and clients. The results showed that an integrative approach to assess the availability of technologies in buildings, its readiness to support building users, and its capacity to support growth strategies has the potential to mitigate sometimes conflicting needs of building occupiers and building owners.
