Closing the performance gap
The performance gap is a well-known issue within the construction and housebuilding sectors but one that will continue to hinder efforts to reach net zero if not addressed. In this session we will look at the ways in which the project team can look to reduce the performance gap in both residential and non-residential buildings.
Our panel of experts will discuss factors that contribute to the performance gap and how this hinders sustainability efforts. We will also look to explore how designers and constructors can overcome these hurdles and the role different parts of the supply chain play in addressing issues around building performance.
