About: 


GBE BEST is part of GBE Code and its results become 

GBE BEST is a major contributing factor in ‘HERACEY™ Healthy Environmental Resourceful Appropriate Competent Effective Yardstick’

GBE PASS may have already assessed the Products.

GBE BEST analyses the methods of construction and choice of materials but more importantly looks at them as part of an assembly and how they work together

BEST Analysis includes:

  • Materials
  • Competent Construction
    • Full compliment of functional components
    • Buildability
    • Appropriate order in element section
    • Construction Sequence
    • Capacity of assembly to meet performance requirements
    • No degradation or diminishing over time
  • Performance
    • Thermal performances
      • U value
      • Decrement Delay
      • Thermal mass
      • Thermal bridging
      • Thermal Bypass
      • Thermal Flanking
    • Moisture Vapour Performances
    • Air permeability/tightness
    • Environmental Performance
      • Embodied energy
      • Embodied carbon
      • Sequestered Carbon
      • Resource depletion
    • Healthy materials and finishes
    • No loss of performance over time

Service to manufacturers

  • GBE BEST Building Element Screening Test
  • manufacturer proposes assemblies using their products based on any promoted, tested or accredited solutions
