Pieter de Wilde, the immediate past chair of the Affiliate Region has recently authored this key publication in the field of building performance analysis and publication, which was published by Wiley last summer with a book signing session took place at the Building Simulation and Optimization 2018 Conference in Cambridge in September.
The subject of the book, building performance, is an important yet surprisingly complex concept. The book presents a comprehensive and systematic overview of this topic. It provides a working definition of building performance, and an in-depth discussion of the role building performance plays throughout the building life cycle. The book also explores the perspectives of various stakeholders, the functions of buildings, performance requirements, performance quantification (both predicted and measured), criteria for success, and the challenges of using performance analysis in practice.
For more information about the book please go to this webinar , presented by the author on 31 May 2018 and posted on the IBPSA University YouTube channel. The book can be purchased directly from the publisher, via the major online retailers, and of course via your local bookseller. Members of IBPSA-England are offered a 20% discount on the book when ordering directly from the publisher at www.wiley.com.
