Energy savings thanks to quality management: The case of Karl Landsteiner University


The estimated average gap between calculated and actual energy performance of the European building stock is 25% for energy performance and 1.5% for comfort performance (as scored by building occupants). Comprehensive research has shown that poorly commissioned and operated building management systems are often responsible for this gap, generally caused by the lack of appropriate and coherent Quality Management Systems (QMS) for building performance.

To tackle these challenges, the project QUANTUM developed and demonstrated pragmatic services and appropriate tools supporting QM for building performance in the design, construction, commissioning and operation phases.

The presented case implemented the tools developed by QUANTUM project and allow to assess the potential savings thanks to the application of an effective QMS.
