  • Abstract:
    Architects, designers and engineers involved in a sustainable design project often require information and tools beyond energy simulation software. They look for tools to support their decisions and to assess the risk involved in decision making. This research presents a framework that links building performance assessment tools with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. The objective is to bridge the gap between architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers and LEED professionals. This work provides information about performance tools that can be used in the different phases of design, construction and operation of a LEED-rated building. This research presents a three-dimensional matrix of the ?right tool for the right job at the right time? by linking LEED credits, software tools and phases of building design, construction and operation. Overall, the findings of the research demonstrate that the framework can be used to achieve 21% of total possible LEED 3.0 credits by providing about 36% of total possible points.
