Quality Control Toolbox

A quality/performance control toolbox - a concept from design to post construction life long management, using BEMS/REMS - type procedures and using prevailing methods. The toolbox has been developed in an electronic/internet based form and is structured according to the three major building project stages, which will be linked.

- Quality control procedure for implementation stage including the analysis of the realization phase of the demonstration buildings and in the stage of use

- Development of electronic display information panels and the involvement and acceptance of the users (a user and service manual model)

- A web-based energy and facility management monitoring system, which has feedback to the planning stage and can be used in benchmarking

- Energy audit model for ascertaining the performance of the building
