Commissioning Aid and Decision Making Assistance Tool 'Implementation & Assessment' - Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
The precedent paper, published in ICEBO 2005 presented the approach and methodology for information flow management in the commissioning of low energy buildings. Within this methodology, commissioning and decision making are included in the low energy building design process with taking care of the efficiency of information flow. This methodology aims at increasing the probability to meet the required needs by including, in the entire building life cycle (design, construction, occupancy and maintenance), a quality control process such as commissioning. This paper presents two aspects. The first part describes the specifications of a tool box for commissioning and decision making aid that we are developing. This tool box applies our methodology in order to guarantee the efficiency of the design process. The seconde part shows how was the approach used to capitalise a reabilitation and construction of low energy buildings in Paris, France and Saint Pierre, Reunion, to validate our hypothesis, to develop and Assess our tool.
