Final Report - SUPERBUILDINGS (Sustainability and performance assessment and benchmarking of buildings - Superbuildings)

Project ID: 244087
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This is the final report of the SUPERBUILDINGS project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project aimed at achieving sustainability indicators for buildings, an understanding about the needed performance levels considering new and existing buildings, different building types and local requirements, methods for the benchmarking of sustainable buildings (SB) and recommendations for the effective use of benchmarking systems as instruments of steering and in building processes.

The project report is divided into the eight work packages (WPs): WP1 ensures the effective work progress and the good communication between project members and between the project and the European Commission (EC); WP2 establishes the common starting point for the project; WP3 analyses the potential of SB benchmarking systems as an instrument of steering and when used in different phases of building projects, WP4 develops and selects sustainability indicators that describe the environmental, social and economic performance of buildings. WP4 will focus on the development of data validity and reliability for each key indicator. WP5 defines performance levels and benchmarking criteria, WP6 makes recommendations for effective exploitation, WP7 pilots the system.
