The growth of green and sustainable building has completely transformed the commercial construction and real estate industries over the past decade. However, whilst buildings are now designed and delivered with sustainable design principles on a global scale, the performance of these buildings over time is rarely discussed. Changes in facilities management, new ownership, or fitout changes can all cause buildings to `drift' from the original design, which can lead to a growth of inefficient building stock and sub-optimal working conditions for occupants. Sustainable Building Performance is a practical professional guide to ensuring that buildings continually maintain and improve their performance levels over time, covering key topics such as:
Indoor environment qualityBuilding managementCorporate cultureDesign and technologyOccupant experience
Sustainable Building Performance provides a practical, action based approach, suitable both for professionals in property, construction and facility management roles, and for students on courses in sustainability, engineering, real estate and architecture.
