These models are used to optimise various design alternatives, reduce energy consumption and cost. Building performance assessment for the operational phase of a buildings life cycle is sporadic, typically working from historical metered data and focusing on bulk energy assessment. Building Management Systems (BMS) do not explicitly incorporate feedback to the design phase or account for any changes, which have been made to building layout or fabric during construction. This paper discuses a proposal to develop an Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) compliant data visualisation tool Building Performance Indicator (BuildingPI) for performance metric and performance effectiveness ratio evaluation.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Kyoto protocol; European Union directive 2002/91/EC; Buliding performance metrics; Software tools||Other versions:||https://ibpsa-usa.org/index.php/ibpusa/article/view/133||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The First National IBPSA-USA Conference (SimBuild 2004), Boulder, Colorado, United States of America, August 4-6, 2004||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
