PeBBu Thematic Network
Performance Based Building Network (PeBBu) is a thematic network funded under the European Commission’s (EU) 5th framework – Competitive and Sustainable Growth. The programme commenced in October 2001 and runs until September 2005. The PeBBu Network facilitates in enhancing the existing performance based building research and activities by networking with the main European stakeholders and other international stakeholders. It produces synergistic results for dissemination and adaptation of performance based building and construction. Currently, more than 60 organisations worldwide are participating in the PeBBu Network.
The PeBBu concept is simple! “Performance Based Building (PBB) is the practice of thinking and working in terms of ends rather than means’, as applied to building and constructing.” Therefore, the basis of all building activities should be the performance of the building in use rather than the prescription of how the building is to be constructed!
