We can design and construct high performance buildings; and have the knowledge and skills to operate them in an effective and efficient manner-so why does it not happen? The underpinning reasons for this gap in performance are generally unknown; there is a lot of speculation and hypothesis but little investigation and hard evidence. The 'Mind the G...

We have the ability to design and construct high performance buildings; and the knowledge and skills to operate them in an effective and efficient manner — so why does it not happen? The difference in performance between those predicted from the design and those found in actual operation are well documented.1,2 However, the underpinning reasons for...

We have the ability to design good buildings and the knowledge to operate them in an effective and efficient manner – so why doesn’t it happen? The “Mind the Gap” project intends to collect evidence from exemplar office buildings with a range of performance; investigate the reasons for their performance; determine the underpinning causes; and then...
