Abstract (English)

This thesis is a record of building Performance Indicators (PIs) in the domains of Energy Efficiency, hygro-thermal performance, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, visual performance and acoustical performance. The record covers scientific and professional literature, including standards, reference literature for professionals and regulation literature. The PIs are recorded into a catalogue and classified under performance domains and sub-domains. Each entry is accompanied by information that allows the user to draw useful conclusions on the tools usability, suitability and effectiveness as well as to search for further information on each tool. Moreover, the indicators are mapped to spheres of everyday professional practice such as building codes and certification programmes. Trends concerning the use of indicators and the nature of the performance requirements are also discussed. This catalogue reveals the spectrum of performance based assessment and design. It can be used by researchers and professionals to help choose between alternative indicators, by stakeholders to facilitate a better dialog between them and by educators to help introduce students and professionals to the field of building science.
