The building performance gap – or credibility gap – between design intent and reality presents a major barrier to the delivery of successful, sustainable and usable buildings. Evidence suggests that buildings frequently do not perform as intended and it is not unusual for the gap between actual energy use of a building to be two or three times larger than that predicted at the design stage.
