The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is a public benefit corporation whose mission is to improve human health and well-being in buildings and communities across the world through its WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™). Featured on Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies list. The need for better measurement and verification was reinforced by a report earlier this year by the New Buildings Institute that examined the energy performance of buildings certified under LEED-NC. The report found that LEED-NC buildings are more energy efficient than average buildings.
The proposed Special Issue, entitled “Innovative Measurement Techniques for Building Performance”, is focused on new approaches for collecting and analysing data from buildings with regards to their physical performance. This Special Issue considers new methods for understanding, building fabric, environmental conditions and energy consumption.

[W W Walton; B C Cadoff; Institute for Applied Technology (U.S.). Building Research Division.;]. Performance Measurement Protocols for Commercial Buildings: Best Practices Guide is the how-to guide for continuously evaluating and improving the performance of commercial buildings throughout their service life.
It is also intended to support integrated commissioning and all activities of the building's. Building a Performance Measurement System describes a five-step process for building or refining a performance measurement system that will serve as an essential tool for assessing your organization’s progress in carrying out its mission.
Performance-Based Building Design is an approach to the design of any complexity of building, from single-detached homes up to and including high-rise apartments and office buildings.
A building constructed in this way is required to meet certain measurable or predictable performance requirements, such as energy efficiency or seismic load, without a specific prescribed method by which to.
mance concepts and performance requirements are undergoing changes as well (Ilgen & Pulakos, ). In this chapter, we summarize the major lines within performance-related research. people who measure the level of performance that lead to customer satisfaction and increase the building occupancy rate.
A quality, comfort, healthy and safe building will definitely attract the. Building EQ - Guidelines for the Evaluation of Building Performance Fraunhofer ISE 3 1. Introduction The building sector is responsible for more than 40 percent of the European en-ergy consumption.
At the same time, the potential to save energy by appropriate building operation management, i.e. by taking measures involving very low or no. Key concepts, such as performance attributes, performance targets or performance banding, are introduced, as are the methods to measure and evaluate building performance.
Topics of both Performance of buildings - concept and measurement. book and practical relevance, including decision making under uncertainty or data collection and analysis for improved building operation and control, are.
The book dwells on basic concepts in earthquake resistant design of buildings, first describes these at a conceptual level and then articulates further with numerical examples. It is an attempt to respond to some of the frequently asked questions by Architects and Structural Engineers regarding behaviour of Reinforced Concrete (RC) and Steel.
Seven Principles for Performance Measurement Stacey Barr Pty Ltd the Performance Measure Specialist ABN 57 return on the resources you invest in building it, maintaining it and using it. With the concept of process measures comes the concept of lead and lag measures. measure their performance in a holistic way.
Moreover, the existing systems tend to focus more on product and less on process and design. This can lead to the sub-optimal quality of the performance measurement system, the misjudging of relative performance, and to complacency and the denying of appropriate rewards to the deserving.
Building Capacity to Measure and Manage Performance Nonprofits that want to have a great impact on the world also need the capacity to use measurement to improve their performance. Interviews with a wide range of nonprofit leaders and our own work with Bridgespan clients suggest five key elements to measurement success.
The I3CON research project seeks to go beyond the performance of individual factors and look at the total delivered value of the building to the customer.
BSRIA's role in the I3CON project is at an operational level, the hypothesis being that maintaining standards is dependent on the measurement of performance. Atkinson et al. () state that performance measurement serves three basic functions: to co-ordinate, to monitor and to diagnose. Through these functions, if implemented and used properly, performance measurement can actually change the lives of people and effectiveness of organisations.
Similarly, Cupello () looks at. Building performance is an attribute of a building that expresses how well that building carries out its functions. It may also relate to the performance of the building construction process. Categories of building performance are quality (how well the building fulfils its functions), resource saving (how much resource is needed to fulfil its functions) and workload capacity (how much the.

MEASUREMENT Performance management (or results-based management) is a strategy designed to achieve changes in the way organizations operate, with improving performance (better results) at the core of the system.
Performance measurement (performance monitoring) is concerned more narrowly with the production of information on performance. including both evaluation and performance measurement, is necessary to manage and improve programs, add to the nonprofit sector’s knowledge base, and to engage donors (Radin, ; W.K.
Kellogg Foundation, a). Definitions for performance measurement vary, but practitioners are converging on a common understanding. Although many buildings claim to be 'green', 'low energy', or 'high performance,' it is rarely clear on what evidence or data these claims are based.
If claims of high performance are to be credible, it is essential that a common set of measurements be used and the results reported against meaningful and consistent benchmarks. This paper introduces the concept of total building performance and the diagnostic tools for measuring and assessing this performance.
It emphasizes the need: (1) to fully address the fundamental building performance mandates of thermal comfort, acoustic comfort, air quality, lighting comfort, spatial comfort, and building integrity; (2) to define their physiological, psychological.
Performance measurement is a simple concept without a simple definition. Essentially, performance measurement analyzes the success of a work group, program, or organization's efforts by comparing data on what actually happened to what was planned or intended .
Performance measurement asks “Is progress being made toward desired goals?This protocol aims to generate high-level comparative measurement results of the performance of sustainably designed buildings.
Originally developed inthis revised protocol reflects lessons learned from various studies and projects where the protocol was used as a primary tool for measuring whole building performance.
Primary level performance metrics are applicable to a specific project, such as the BEUI and end use energy break down. Secondary performance metrics are often combinations of lower level performance metrics and other data, and are used to show performance of a group of buildings, or across an entire building category.
