BEAM Plus is a comprehensive environmental assessment scheme for buildings of Hong Kong. As one of the BEAM Plus performance categories, assessments of Energy Use (EU) in a building contain variety of uses, energy sources and building services systems or equipment, which are complex processes given the number of influencing variables. By comparing with the benchmarks derived from audits of similar type of buildings, and/or a computational approach, the energy uses, in addition to features known to have impact on overall performance will be determined.

This course is designed for building and facility management professionals, project managers, engineers, the other professionals and practitioners who are interested in green building projects. All speakers are experienced and professional, the participants will acquire essential
knowledge on EU. This is also a Mandatory CPD course for BEAM Pro and BEAM Affiliate to enrich their knowledge in BEAM Plus submission requirements, tips and tricks.

Cantonese with English Terminology.
