Abstract

Ambitious goals for the upgrade of construction aimed at energy conservation may quite often bounce due to different barriers, from design and detailing, through construction, to commissioning and behavioural ones. To overcome these, this paper focuses on the missing link of the construction process - the Informative Commissioning, the pre and post occupancy monitoring, and the POE, all integral parts of the ZeroPlus EU project. Limitations, barriers and other considerations and complexities encountered through the project's stages will be presented, alongside the formation of the methodology and some preliminary results of the first case studies to be commissioned.
