Bldg-rate -- For people using building performance rating systems.


About Bldg-rate
English (USA)

BLDG-RATE is a mailing list for people using building performance rating systems. Discussions of any green building performance rating system or building energy performance rating system are welcome. Some of the most common rating systems include the LEED rating systems (New Construction, Existing Buildings, Homes, etc.), ENERGY STAR (Label for Buildings, Target Finder, Home), BREEAM, various Home Energy Rating Systems (HERS), and Green Globes. Building rating systems provide a method to objectively grade, or benchmark, the environmental and/or energy performance of both commercial and residential buildings providing a score that others can understand. Discussions of design-oriented as well as operation-oriented rating systems are encouraged. Many building rating systems are in use today and conversations relating to any and all of them may take place on the mailing list. People of all experience levels ranging from those just learning to experts are urged to share their questions and answers on the mailing list.
