Did you know defining a building’s performance involves assessing various variables, including its impact on human health, the environment, energy efficiency, and cost management, which need to be measured, weighted, and considered holistically to determine its quality and value? The equation PBQ = V provides a framework for evaluating a building’s value, where PB represents Performance and Business Markets, and Q signifies Quality. This equation aims to quantify and balance these factors to systematically optimize building design and operations, considering a wide range of variables, and it is crucial for industry professionals and clients seeking a clear understanding of these dynamics.
