UK Green Building Council launches building performance project
The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) has just launched a new research project that aims to tackle the way industry currently designs, constructs and operates non-domestic buildings, focusing on how to maximise building performance, not just in energy terms, but also other aspects of performance that impact both the building user and the wider environment.
The research, sponsored by BuroHappold, Saint-Gobain and Tarmac Group, will work with UK-GBC members to explore what companies are already doing to address the issue of building performance, seek out best practice, and to identify gaps and barriers that need to be overcome across the whole industry.
Julie Hirigoyen, CEO of the UK-GBC said: “I am delighted that UK-GBC members are supporting this important piece of work. 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. Following the COP21 deal, this is just one of the ways in which the UK industry is showing its leadership and ambition.”
HeatingSave – save energy and money with full monitoring options
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system. They also fully support heat meters and use the data to run the heating system as economically as possible.
