New Book by Building Industry Experts
June 7, 2010

It’s long been realized in the building industry that you can’t manage what you dont measure when it comes to building performance. But even if you measure, what ensures that those measurements are appropriate and meaningful?

A new book from three leading building industry associations provides a standardized set of protocols over a range of accuracies and costs that can be applied consistently to the assessment of building performance. Published by ASHRAE and developed in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Performance Measurement Protocols for Commercial Buildings identifies what to measure, how to measure it and how often it is to be measured for inclusion in buildings’ operation and maintenance plan.

The cost of Performance Measurement Protocols for Commercial Buildings is $89 ($75 ASHRAE members). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 1-800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, or visit:
