The Building Verification Forum is an interim group working towards the establishment of a national Building Verification Council (BVC). The Forum is using a lean start-up philosophy to develop minimal viable projects that will gauge market feedback and test fundamental business hypotheses prior to the BVC being incorporated. These projects are listed below.
The intention of the BVC is to enable the residential building industry to respond to increasingly demanding technical standards from consumers, by demonstrating building performance through verification, assurance and testing, instead of just prediction and modelling alone. Its mission will be to close the gap between the designed and as-built performance of buildings.
