As a result of the energy performance of the buildings directive (EPBD 2010), the requirements have been gradually tightened in the Swedish building regulations. For the purpose of the directive to be realized, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure that buildings actually live up to the minimum rules laid down in the Swedish Building Regulations (BBR) or more ambitious requirements imposed directly by the clients. To gain more insight into these questions, today´s building process has been studied through interviews and workshops with regional actors in seven regions around Sweden.
Routines for handling energy requirements within the building process is needed. A guideline is proposed with new routines and documentation for the building process, i.e. handling of starting clearance, designing of inspection plan and follow-up for final clearance.
