It is important that involvement in a project does not end at handover. Monitoring and Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) are essential tools to ensure that our buildings are operating as designed, are comfortable and healthy to use.
We believe that we should continually evaluate and learn from completed buildings to ensure that we are providing the most effective service for our clients. There is a much reported “performance gap” between modelled and actual energy data and we can help you to close that gap.
Occupant satisfaction surveys (BUS)
The BUS methodology is the original method of evaluating occupant satisfaction and has been developed over the last 30 years. It is an established, tried and tested way of benchmarking levels of occupant satisfaction within buildings against a large database of results for similar buildings. Results can be used to create solutions to improve the occupant experience and optimise building performance.
Over 45 key variables are evaluated covering aspects such as thermal comfort, ventilation, indoor air quality, lighting, personal control, noise, space, design, image and needs. Twelve summary variables provide a snapshot of the overall building performance.
Ingleton Wood are proud to be a selected partner on the BUS Methodology Partner Network and are trained to carry out high quality surveys and interpret the results. Our partner page can be found at http://ingletonwood.busmethodology.org.uk/
Energy monitoring and reporting
Detailed energy performance data is invaluable to understand how a building is working. Good data allows you to identify opportunities for both significant cost savings and notable improvement to your Carbon footprint.
Ingleton Wood has experience in collecting and interpreting accurate measured data in buildings from domestic properties to theatres. Energy monitoring can also help you to achieve planning condition obligations, meet the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations or inform a cost efficient refurbishment.
