QUEST Post-Project-Evaluation and Certification
QUEST has developed certifiable post-project evaluation processes that be slotted into, or applied in parallel to, the certification rules of certification authorities such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, COPILOT etc. These processes should respect formal certification rules and the international ISO 17065 standard.
Certificate 1: Basic post-project evaluation
QUEST developed a very simple certifiable process based on the application of QUEST questionnaires before and after a building project.
Certificate 2: Advanced post-project evaluation
QUEST enhanced Certificate 1 by integrating guided interviews which aim to improve “soft” data such as perception of technical risks.
Certificate 3 : Certified Technical Monitoring and Advanced post-project evaluation
QUEST enhances Advanced post-proiect evaluation (Certificate 2) by requiring Certified Technical Monitoring (TMon) of real operational performance of the building in normal occupation.
Certificate 4: Total Quality Management
This process combines classic Building Certification with Technical Monitoring Certification and Certificate 2’s advanced post-project evaluation. Users are free to select their preferred Building Certification. This is reinforced, if appropriate, by Technical Monitoring Certification of building performance in normal operation to maximise real-world impact. Expected performance is compared to actual performance.
