Better building performance is critical in helping to reduce the UK’s energy demand, says Stewart Gilmour

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) welcomes the AJ’s Bridge the Gap campaign. This campaign promotes the achievement of better building performance which is critical in helping to reduce the UK’s energy demand and very timely given the foreseen capacity gap.

CIBSE’s 20,000 members have been promoting the importance of better building performance for a number of years most notably through the establishment and promotion of the annual CIBSE Building Performance Awards which reward the measured energy performance of both new and retrofitted buildings.

CIBSE also produces benchmarks for building performance metrics and guidance to improve the performance for example Guide F – Energy Efficiency in Buildings.

Post-occupancy evaluation is a critical part of this process and to be encouraged.
