A new web survey by sustainability consultant Georgie James, into the extent that environmental assessment methods are appropriate for refurbishment of historic buildings, is now open for responses.
Georgie James writes:
My research is into the extent that current environmental assessment methods used in the UK are appropriate for refurbishment of listed buildings, and whether the development of a tool specifically tailored for these building types would be useful both in terms of setting targets and for enabling fair comparisons of performance, particularly in relation to energy efficiency. The survey includes a section on the forthcoming Green Deal as this is set to be another important driver for implementing energy efficiency retrofit measures in existing buildings.
Divided into 5 sections, the questionnaire should take about 10-15 minutes to complete, with multiple choice answers available for all questions, and the option to provide further comments if you wish. Depending on how you answer certain questions you will automatically be taken to the next relevant question, to ensure that you only need to answer questions relevant to your particular area of knowledge and/or experience (up to a maximum of 29 questions + contact/consent details).
