​INSITER SELF-INSPECTION METHOD AND INSTRUMENTS TO ENSURE OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE OF PREFAB RETROFITTING SOLUTIONS​​​​​

​​

Abstract

The benefits of prefab retrofitting solutions for NET Zero Energy buildings (such as prefab components for building envelopes, windows, equipment) are at risk because of bad implementation during the construction processes. As a result, the energy-efficiency potential as designed will not be realised. The European Horizon 2020 research project INSITER develops a quality assurance method that closes the performance gap between design and construction. This paper reports on the first phase of such a method, being a desk research to identify the most frequent construction errors, state-of-the-art diagnostic instruments to detect the errors and suitable standards for performance control​.
