The construction sector is essential for an economic recovery after the COVID-19 crisis.
As a means of contributing to enhancing the buildings’ pre and post occupancy developments, a study has been conducted, which aims at upgrading PEB’s energy performance predictions which are guided by users’ everyday practices.
I believe the carbon constraint will not stifle but will catalyse innovation, and we may find that the solutions are far better than their carbon intense predecessors.
