Front cover for The SPAB Research Report 2: The SPAB Building Performance Survey 2012 Interim Report

Interim Report

By Caroline Rye, Cameron Scott and Diane Hubbard

Get from publisher

This report is the second in a series, which details the interim findings of the SPAB's Building Performance Survey, a research project supported by English Heritage that looks at the performance of a number of traditional buildings both before and after refurbishment designed to improve energy efficiency. This report is the first to provide details of post-refurbishment performance in three of the buildings within the survey.

The report is in two parts: The first part sets out the background to the project, provides an update of progress and is followed by a summary discussion of findings so far. The second part, called Appendix A, is formed of individual documents that report in detail from the three refurbished properties studied over the past year.
