Thanks for agreeing to complete our Building Use Evaluation Survey. This page contains some answers to questions you may have. The survey will be collected the same day that it is distributed - normally about 3pm. If you know you are going to be away from your desk, please leave it in a place where it can be easily seen and collected.
What is BEES?
The Building Energy End-use Study (BEES) is a 6-year project monitoring and analysing the energy and water consumption of non-residential buildings around New Zealand. This research is the first of its kind to be done in New Zealand.
Why is BRANZ conducting this survey?
This survey was developed in the UK in 1985 and is now used around the world. The survey will be used to support the detailed monitored information that is being collected (such as temperatures, energy use, humidity, lighting levels). By understanding your perceptions of the space, we have a better idea of what conditions work in a building.
Why are you collecting information about travel to and from work?
The facilities at the building can also affect how you choose to travel to and from work. For example, if there are showers and secure bike storage, you may be more likely to cycle to and from work.
