These training documents are to help anyone involved in a building project to understand what Building Performance Evaluation is, who will undertake what and when. We present the benefits of these efforts, which include occupant satisfaction, lower environmental impact, and reducing risk. We want the user of this series to have the confidence and information to be able to get the evaluation programme they need to achieve their goals for their project.
