Project Title

Measuring Building Sustainability - An International Perspective


The research theme for this PhD is based around the hypothesis that the growth of different sustainability measurement systems for buildings has undermined the credibility of the sustainability ratings achieved by buildings internationally.

The proposed methodology is to examine the principle international measurement systems and identify inconsistencies between them. It is hoped to achieve this through detailed desk study of the various operating systems, in conjunction with unique case study data.
