The Built Environment Research Group (BERG) at the School of Architecture and Building at Deakin University is involved in the monitoring of building energy consumption, lighting and acoustic levels, as well as material and thermal performance. Such measurements have taken place in several buildings over the last few years. This has been the result of a deliberate policy of BERG to initiate a process that completes the loop of design, prediction, monitoring, verification, teaching, then back to design again. This paper presents a summary of some projects that have involved building monitoring. We have established a methodology for measuring buildings which will be discussed, as well as the reasoning behind our desire to monitor buildings in general. The paper will present a summary of the results of measurement acquired to date (energy consumption, schedules, operation, etc.) and the lessons that have been learned from this monitoring program.
