Gavin Bunker, Andrew Wright, Richard Greenough

Abstract: This paper describes how the Low Energy and Sustainable Solutions Online Knowledge System, LESSONS, a new online design tool for sustainable building design professionals with different levels of expertise is being developed to provide users with easy access to knowledge gained by other practitioners from previous sustainable building design experience and the resulting design lessons. The paper describes the findings of a literature search and survey to identify current design tools and the analysis of a questionnaire sent to stakeholders to discover the current methods and problems encountered in low energy building design. In conclusion the paper briefly describes the next stage of development for the design tool.
