This project, sponsored by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, is to improve the BEAM (Building Environmental Assessment Method) Plus green building standard. In the course of improving this standard, the project identified which credits have low adherence, why certain credits fail to be satisfied, and how to increase the achievement of all credits. The methodology used was to conduct focus groups, interviews, and observations of BEAM certified buildings. From the data collected the team was able to recommend improvements to BEAM credits, new credits to be added to BEAM, and changes to the BEAM scoring system.
