This report outlines the key learnings and progress to date of the Design for Performance initiative, including:

  • A Feasibility Study, which examined the hugely transformational Australian NABERS scheme for new offices, identified the key elements which contributed to its success.
  • A Pilot Programme to test the key success factors of a design-for-performance approach on real-life development projects in the UK.
  • A road map for outlining the governance structures, market demand and industry skills necessary to deliver a design-for-performance approach in the UK.
