Abstract

Performance Indicators for Health, Comfort and Safety of the Indoor Environment - "PERFECTION" - is an ongoing (2009-2011) coordination action executed by 11 European partners on the initiative of European Commission. The main objective of the project is to enable the application of new design and technologies that improve the impact of the indoor built environment on health, comfort, feeling of safety and positive stimulation (including those for people with impaired cognitive, sensorial or motor capacity). This paper presents an approach for indoor performance evaluation of buildings, introduced in the project, using a Key Indoor Performance Indicator (KIPIs) framework. The approach consists of a uniform indicator template for 34 selected KIPIs containing all necessary information for the evaluation of buildings' performance properties with grades between A-E. In addition, a tool has been developed to assist in the evaluation process. It enables a structured assessment of different buildings with help of performance and sustainability scores. This paper focuses on the approach developed for buildings' indoor performance assessment, and also illustrates some results from the project's case studies.
