Design4Energy (D4E) project aims at developing a design methodology that is able to create energy-efficient buildings within the context of their neighbourhoods. An indicator framework for managing project strategic objectives has been set up, with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to assess buildings’ performance in use. Selected performance, economic and environmental indicators, enriched with neighbourhood energy efficiency indicators are defined with assessment criteria and metrics. The D4E usage scenarios are formalised following Information Delivery Manual (IDM) methodology: capturing the KPI target setting and their assessment processes in project definition and early design phases in Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) process maps, and specifying the content of each of those exchanges as Exchange Requirements (ER). This paper will demonstrate how D4E design methodology with a set of KPIs can be used to improve building design process, including neighbourhood context.
