Centre for Building Performance Research

The Centre for Building Performance Research aims to extend and enhance knowledge of the performance of buildings and the built sector.

About us

The Centre of Building Performance Research (CBPR) is the first of its kind in New Zealand. CBPR is built upon the expertise in architectural research and building performance research developed by the Wellington School of Architecture over the past 25 years. This centre was established by the Council of Victoria University of Wellington in 1998.

Our aims

The Centre for Building Performance Research aims to:

  • extend and enhance knowledge of the performance of buildings and the built sector as a whole
  • develop building design and operation knowledge that will improve the quality of buildings
  • improve the flow of information to all those involved in the research, design, construction, and use of buildings
  • develop a research database on the performance of New Zealand buildings
  • foster links between researchers and professionals in the building industry through joint development activities.
