Abstract

This paper reports on the key findings of performance evaluations of eight new-build and newly refurbished buildings in four sectors: Offices, Schools, Hospitals, and Apartment blocks. Energy performances of these buildings are compared against the available design estimations and good practice benchmarks. Thermal comfort and indoor air quality in these buildings have also been analysed to provide a holistic view of total energy and environmental performance. The performance of the building with the least energy use suggests that a performance contract can be effective if it addresses both energy and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). Other improvement opportunities identified include optimisation of ventilation control, performance measurement and verification of low carbon systems, and provisions for inspection and maintenance of advanced mechanical ventilation systems in low-energy dwellings.
