Guide to how better data can enhance building performance

A new publication from BSRIA – Building Services Analytics – BG 75/2018 – is designed to raises awareness and provide guidance to building owners and all those involved in the design, construction, and operation of buildings and building services on how the correct capture and analysis of data can be used to drive improvement in building performance.

It was written by BSRIA member and energy consultant at Layng Energy Solutions, Mitch Layng. 

BSRIA said: “It is becoming increasingly important for building owners, operators, and service-providers to start making use of big data and analytics. BG 75/2018 highlights what’s involved with this complex and growing management process, and what considerations should be given to implementing building services analytics. One of the key drivers to implementing analytics in buildings, and particularly building services, is energy performance. Data analytics related to energy meters has been in existence far longer than it has for other building services. Sadly, metering is often incorrectly specified, designed, installed, and operated, resulting in many problems in terms of data validation and accuracy.”

BSRIA says BG 75/2018 should assist in ensuring that the correct metering strategy is designed and implemented, resulting in better-performing buildings. It also provides information and references on analytics for the whole building services industry – from designers, installers, and building operators, to occupiers and customers. The result, BSRIA says, should be financial savings from energy efficiencies, and a better, safer, and more productive environment for the occupant.

BG 75/2018 can be purchased in pdf and hard copy from www.bsria.co.uk, while BSRIA members can download the PDF for free.
