Platform for discussion of theory on building performance

The term 'building performance' is used frequently by many, yet few people can provide a good definition of the concept. This website is dedicated to the discussion of this subject, and hopes to contribute to a generally accepted theory of building performance and its analysis. It provides a communication hub in support of the book on Building Performance Analysis published by Wiley in 2018 and for discussing the many aspects of building performance. The content of the page and book is based on over 20 years of research and teaching on the subject and related fields by the author. 


Particular interest are:

  • definition of the concept of building performance
  • approaches for the quantification of building performance
  • study of the contribution that building performance analysis may make to better design, construction and operation of buildings
  • the interaction between the field of building performance analysis and adjacent disciplines.

The platform offers background information on the Building Performance Analysis book, a building performance blog, an overview of various building performance aspects, a listing of recommended reading on the subject, book reviews, and relevant links that point to further information. It also includes a page with information for those who want to study the subject through an academic course.


In November 2019 the book Building Performance Analysis was been shortlisted for the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2020, the category 'Learning & Development'.



Following up on the success of last year, a new Book Promotion Contest was held in spring 2020. This is now completed  but you can still click here for more details including the announcement of the winner. The past contest of spring 2019 is archived.
