Expert Systems

  • Expert System techniques:
  • Questions offer Multiple Choice Answers which lead to more Qs and MCAs ad infinitum until you reduce 1 million solutions to the 1 solution that meets all the project requirements.
  • It requires a GURU to write the questions and set the answers and arrange them in the right order from macro to micro


  • GBE EXPERT will become a Design & Descision Tool
  • GBE EXPERT will adopt expert system approached but may become part of and interlaced with the Green Building Encyclopaedia website so you move in and out of GBE EXPERT without noticing.


  • I do need to prepare a seminar for 1st week of June to present at Vision London Exhibition to demonstrate what Green Building Encyclopaedia's GBE 2D VIEW will become.
  • I would also like to demonstrate GBE EXPERT intertwined with it so I can work out what GBE EXPERT might look and feel like and how the two could interplay.
  • This will lead on to developing the real thing for October.


During the 'Sustainability Revolution' it has become clear that we have not been making many sustainable nor competent buildings, because we don’t fully understand the physics of buildings and the science of materials, and we compromise between what we design and what we build with cost cutting, substitutions or value engineering, with low initial cost as the primary criteria for success.  Further degradation of ambitions occurs on site through lack of understanding, lack of care and poor workmanship.  It's time for change, and this is the beginning of GBE’s contribution, it’s about developing a more detailed and joined up understanding of environmental design principles and generating detailed 'Healthy Environmental Resourceful Appropriate Competent Effective Construction' rules.

We have already got a name for it GBE CODE, its not a version of an EAM Environmental Assessment Method like DREAM, SPEAR, LEED, Ska, BREEAM or Code for Sustainable Homes, (some of which appear to be tick box exercises, that prevent innovation and selection of really green, low carbon, resource efficient and healthy products) but a CODE for 'Healthy Environmental Resourceful Appropriate Competent Effective Construction' which embraces traditional, modern & innovative methods of construction.

GBE CODE aims to bring together:

Collectively the aim is to find a pathway through the myriad of options, addressing local climate, component functions, compatibility of materials, resource efficiency, energy saving, carbon reduction as well as healthy buildings; to shortlist methods of construction and material choices that are appropriate to a site and 'Healthy Environmental Resourceful Appropriate Competent Effective Construction'.
