BEES 2.0: Building for Environmental and Economic Sustainability Peer Review Report
M A. Curran, J G. Overly, P Hofstetter, R Muller, Barbara C. Lippiatt
This report documents the results of a technical review of the BEES (Building for Environmental and Economic Sustainability) 2.0b software and user manual. BEES measures the life-cycle environmental and economic performance of building products using methods based on consensus standards. Comments by four external experts are compiled in this report, along with responses from the BEES developers. While the life-cycle environmental performance measurement field has advanced dramatically over the last decade, valid disagreements and limitations remain. The report sheds light on the key issues to help BEES users place BEES results in their proper context, and to help environmental researchers and tool developers struggling with the same concerns.
