As architects aim to create buildings that are carbon neutral, energy efficient, and even net-positive energy, they are analyzing the performance quality of their designs as early and as often as possible. This method is called performance-based design, and it requires assessing building performance throughout the design process, rather than just at the end of a project for compliance purposes.
