This talk is arranged in two parts, the first discussing an academic study investigating the role of information feedback in the construction industry and second, a series of case studies describing the implementation of many of the study findings.
A mixed methodology study investigated the role of energy consumption information feedback in the design, construction and management of low energy buildings within the context of legislative, economic and other pressures. The study used anonymous predicted and recorded energy consumption data from the CarbonBuzz platform, semi-structured interviews, a survey and document review to explore the current and future role that such energy data might play and concluded with recommendations for future information use.
A number of these recommendations are currently being implemented at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects through our longstanding in-house critical sustainability review process. The review encompasses energy as well as eleven other broad sustainability metrics. A series of case studies will be presented to discuss this implementation of systematic and wide ranging sustainability information feedback in an industrial context to inform design decision making.
About the speaker:
Dr Craig Robertson is an architect and researcher and is Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architect’s Sustainability Specialist. He is responsible for administering and developing AHMM’s wide ranging sustainability agenda. This includes input and support into every design project from feasibility to post completion, development of a building performance evaluation programme and the expansion of their burgeoning R&D work.
Craig completed his PhD in early 2014 at the UCL Energy Institute which focussed on the potential for energy consumption information to inform, support and justify strategic and detailed building design, construction, management and commercial decisions.

About the UCL Energy Institute:
Founded in June 2009, the UCL Energy Institute (UCL-Energy) was established as UCL’s response to the global challenges of mitigating climate change and providing energy security in the 21st century. UCL-Energy, which sits within the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment at UCL, brings together different perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. It coordinates multidisciplinary teams from across the University, with the aim of accelerating the transition to a globally sustainable energy system through world-class energy research, education and policy support. www.ucl.ac.uk/energy Follow on Twitter @ucl_energy
