The UK building industry has launched a new research project that aims maximise building performance in terms of energy efficiency and overall environmental impact. Led by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), the project will examine the way the industry designs, constructs and operates non-domestic buildings. The research will encourage UKGBC members to explore what companies are already doing to address the issue of building performance, seek out best practice, and identify gaps and barriers that need to be overcome across the whole industry. A key area of focus will be reducing the gap that exists between a buildings expected performance and its actual performance.
