Energy Benchmarking - Existing Retail Centres - GLA vs GFA?


We have recently had very interesting results in trying to benchmark energy performance of a Retail Centre seeking a Green Star - Existing Building rating. Some findings below.

We found that using a GFA based benchmark instead of GLA gave us far better and fairer results! The GBCSA approved it for our Green Star rating, but you would need to check with them for yours.

Happy benchmarking!
