Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Projects should be designed for the delivery of outputs that are proportionate to funding amounts. In the case of the PEEB Project, US$2.62 million over a period of 5 years to reduce GHG emissions from the building sector by 2 million tonnes of CO2 through completion of several intensive activities related mainly to adoption of an integrated building approach that included formulating the approach as well as completing the design and construction of the demonstration building, was simply insufficient. Most importantly, the Project design underestimated the level of effort necessary to design, construct and commission an IBDA-designed building within the public sector. Furthermore, the time required for the formulation and adoption of IBDA within the engineering and architectural professions was severely underestimated.

2

For projects that involve significant effort to manage capital cost projects, there should be appropriate implementation planning for the preparing the Terms of References, design, tendering, construction planning and management, and commissioning. This was absent on the PEEB Project. If such capital cost implementation planning had taken place, more realistic targets could have been set for this project.

 

3

Expend remaining resources and efforts to raise the profile of IBDA benefits to higher government officials who can more effectively disseminate the integrated building design approach to a wider spectrum of stakeholders including:

• a high-profile event at the opening of the MoNE’s Etimesgut-Eryaman Cezeri Green Technology Technical and Industrial Vocational High School Building in Ankara;

• re-engagement of TOKI to respond to their interest in IBDA practices and their investment in mass housing projects throughout Turkey;

• linkages to projects under the Government of Turkey’s “Urban Transformation Program”;

• a high-profile terminal workshop for the PEEB Project with government and donors to commit funding to sustain improvements in building energy efficiency in Turkey; and

• sustained linkages to priority educational institutions for the purposes of providing training for trainers on IBDA and other building energy efficiency issues.

4

Increase dialogue with other ministries, programs and stakeholders who are involved with large building projects for adoption of IBDA including:

• TOKI;

• Government of Turkey’s “Urban Transformation Program” (see Action 3). One of this program’s large projects include the reconstruction of the Kadikoy district in Istanbul2 where there could be an opportunity to include IBDA approaches for reconstructed buildings;

• Ministry of National Education whose positive experience with their own IBDA-designed demonstration building in Ankara has led to their expressions of interest in increasing their low carbon building stock.

5

Continued development of EMIS will require a strategic approach considering the large and diverse building stock that exists in Turkey. This strategic approach would include defining the objectives of data collection, defining the work required to collect building information from other ministries, action plans, human resources required to carry out this work, and defined milestone.

1. Recommendation:
