It is my pleasure to announce my new book Building Performance Analysis. The book presents a comprehensive and systematic overview of this surprisingly complex subject, and should be useful to anyone who teaches building science. It consists of three parts. Part I: Foundations reviews the context, background and theory of the subject. Part II: Assessment explores operationalisation and how to quantify building performance, including both simulation as well as physical measurement. Part III: Impact discusses how building performance analysis features in design, construction and operation of buildings. An epilogue presents the emerging theory of building performance analysis. Each main chapter contains the discussion of a case study building that represents the state-of-the-art in the field but also demonstrates remaining challenges.
Building Performance Analysis consists of 11 chapters and 600 pages, and includes over 1600 references. The book is formally endorsed by IBPSA, the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). It can be purchased directly from the publisher (Wiley; direct link: http://www.wiley.com/buy/9781119341925), via the major online retailers, and of course via your local bookseller.
I look forward to hear your feedback on the book.
