The BEES research project will provide new knowledge and understanding of resource use and indoor environments in New Zealand's non-residential buildings. This will tell us where energy and water
efficiency improvements can make the biggest impact as well as facilitate greater comfort and productivity for building occupants.
Our free seminar held in July 2012 covered results from the 5th
year of this 6-year project:
- Water use patterns in non-residential buildings in Auckland.
- Exploration into some of the higher and lower energy users that have been detailed
monitored in BEES.
- Results from the modelling carried out to assist the development of the new Christchurch CBD, which will help inform city planners, designers and building owners of options
on how to get the most from their site.
- Analysis from interviews with different players in the non-residential building area about the barriers to improving their buildings.
results from Building Evaluations Survey (BUS), which collects information on the occupants' perception of the building performance.
