The second tranche of the Technology Strategy Board's Building Performance Evaluation Competition is now open for applications. The closing date will be 13 October 2010. Visit the TSB website for details of how to apply.
TSB will be funding individual companies and other organisations responsible for buildings for the total cost of evaluating the performance of case study buildings they design, build, own and/or operate. This will help builders and developers to deliver more efficient, better performing buildings.
Domesitc buildings: Studies on domestic buildings will cover either the period immediately post construction and into early occupation (Phase 1 studies), or a period of two years in-use for buildings less than 2 years old (Phase 2 studies).
Non-domestic buildings: Similarly, non-domestic building studies will be either for buildings under construction and nearing completion (Under Construction) or those in use and no more than 3 years old (In-Use).
All studies will be required to use specified protocols, tools and techniques to capture data in a comparable form.
