Building sustainability refers to building and site scale systems which are planned, design, constructed and managed to support sustainability. Gauge has developed a range of tools and resources related to building sustainability. These are:
- Blog: This provides posts on building sustainability and the tools and projects being carried out by Gauge on building sustainability.
- Sustainable Building Assessment Tool: The Sustainable Building Assessment Tool (SBAT) has been developed to enable the sustainability assessment of buildings. The tool and methodology enable building designs and existing buildings to be assessed in terms of their capability to support sustainability. It supports the integration of sustainability into design strategies for new development and can be used to identify appropriate interventions for improving existing buildings.
- Tools and resources: Tools and resources related to urban sustainability developed by Gauge can be provided through access to subscription-based portals.
