A systematic review of Building Performance Evaluation criterias (BPE)

Keywords: performance, evaluation, criteria, construction, systematic review


The objective of this article is to provide, through a systematic review of the literature, focused on the quality control of buildings, a database to present the Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) most used criteria. Through this review, 782 articles were identified, of which 15 were selected considering the subject's adherence to the research and publication period. It was discussed the main information about the articles, their authors and journals. The performance criteria compiled by the analyzed articles used as basis: literature, questionnaires and interviews with users and professionals of the area, consultation with specialists in the segment and technical visits to buildings. With these identified criteria, it was possible to define 9 dimensions of analysis that are presented and discussed in this document.
