Real performance in real buildings

Re-envision the procurement process
Every year new buildings are constructed that use more energy than expected. We want to break that trend and recently piloted an innovative performance-based procurement process in Minnesota that goes against the norm. It shifts the focus of owners and design teams from modeled energy goals to operational energy performance. It allows building owners to specify energy performance targets in project request for proposals. Design and construction teams are selected based on their ability to meet those targets, then held contractually accountable throughout building design and into occupancy. Does performance-based procurement really work? Hear results from those involved in the pilot from both a programmatic and customer perspective.
