Building environment and performance

Hello everyone

You might like to know that HLF has published some new good practice guidance on building environment and performance.

Building environment refers to environmental factors that have an impact on a building – such as water, light, heat and pollution.

Building performance describes how the building responds to its environment and the conditions outlined above i.e. by moderating the temperature due to its thick masonry walls.

Our new good practice guidance will:

  • take you through the steps involved in understanding your building and its performance
  • help you think about how you can use the building to support your project aims
  • help you avoid the common problems that could lead to costly damage in the future

Do please take a look and tell us what you think -

And if you would like to learn more Tobit Curteis, who wrote the guidance, is giving a related lecture at UCL on 16 February. Details are available at
