This database tool provides a structured approach to recording design decisions that impact a facility’s in areas such as energy efficiency. Using the tool, owners and designers alike can plan, monitor and verify that a facility's design intent is being met during each stage of the design process. Additionally, the Tool gives commissioning agents, facility operators and future owners and renovators an understanding of how the building and its subsystems are intended to operate, and thus track and benchmark performance.
