Common Data Metrics for Efficient & Informed Delivery of Environmental Asmnt Pt1

CIBSE Technical Symposium, De Montfort University, Leicester UK
6th and 7th September 2011

 

This paper identifies and describes the key metrics which are required by practitioners and lists the data which should be made available by all assessment delivery software and scheme providers to best service the need of the professionals who have to deliver against BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and similar environmental assessment methods. A data set has been constructed from approximately 120 live BREEAM assessments (anonymous to the authors) which are using the Tracker Plus web-based BREEAM project delivery system. This paper introduces a methodology that uses average targeted % scores for each credit issue and then runs a distribution across quartiles to better identify macro and specific issues for further investigation. The approach provides a simple and standardised method which should benefit both practitioners and scheme operators. A number of issues have been identified and these are discussed with mind to practical issues and the development of both regulation and BREEAM scheme development.
