GBE Comment:

  • These two documents only address a small segment of Green Issues: in this case Energy
  • You could argue that Energy is a business efficiency issues, not a green issue, but business is not always intelligent, and QS distract them
  • The approach set out in these two documents could be applied to the whole Green Agenda
  • Published in 2001 they were well ahead of mainstream engagement with Green issues
  • Competent buildings was never on the agenda, today we know about the ‘Performance gap’ even if we have not fully understood it nor addressed it.
  • We can now renege with passive design, airtightness, thermal bridge free, thermal mass, decrement delay, appropriate materials
