Building user guide

Building user guide

A building user guide provides details regarding the everyday operation of a building and ways in which occupants and facility managers encounter and interact with the facility. The ESD (ecologically sustainable development) section of the guide provides guidance on the green initiatives designed into the building. It is provided to ensure that the ESD initiatives continue to be utilized correctly by building occupants, so that the benefits will be realized long after the design and delivery team have completed their work.
