Abstract

Through its Metrics and Tools for Sustainable Buildings project, NIST is taking a lead role in providing science-based guidance to the building community on the life cycle environmental and economic performance of specific building types designed to meet and exceed current building energy codes. In order to develop sustainable building metrics and tools that will be useful to practicing designers, the project team convened an industry workshop in December 2010 to gather industry input on their needs in this area. This report compiles and assesses these needs in the context of the NIST mission and the project scope, resulting in a vision for Metrics and Tools for Sustainable Buildings that support the needs of practicing designers.
