The construction functionality evaluate (BPE) framework emphasizes an evaluative stance during the six stages of the development supply and existence cycle: (1) strategic planning/needs research; (2) application evaluate; (3) layout overview; (4) post-construction evaluation/review; (5) post-occupancy evaluate; and, (6) amenities administration review/adaptive reuse.The classes realized from optimistic and unfavourable development functionality are fed into destiny development supply cycles. The case reports illustrate how this uncomplicated technique has been tailored to quite a number cultural contexts, and exhibits the confident result of development functionality overview in a variety of situations.Practical suggestion on assessing and tracking construction functionality.

Sample text

A programme is necessary when the client and/or the future building user are attempting, in consultation with building specialists, to document the needs, aims, resources and the context of the project, and solutions to other problems arising at this phase. Loop 2 – programme review: at the end of this phase, programme review involves the client, the programmer, and representatives of occupant groups. This allows the project 17 18 Introduction and Overview participants to reflect on the programme document containing performance criteria and other outcomes of strategic planning.

The ultimate goal of the International Building Performance Evaluation (IBPE) Consortium (Preiser, 1995) is to create a standardized ‘universal tool kit’ of data-gathering instruments, which can be applied to any building type anywhere in the world (Preiser and Schramm, 2002). A preliminary ‘tool kit’ is therefore provided in the Appendix to this book. 6 Economic and sustainability issues Since a major concern of practitioners in the construction and real estate industry is the cost of time, innovative techniques that could be applied to programming, design and construction are often considered too costly for a typical building project’s time-frame and budget.
