Linnean developed a monitoring and verification (M&V) plan for Coldham & Hartman Architects as part of Williams College’s commitment to successful high performance buildings. Linnean’s M&V plan outlined a detailed process for embedding performance verification throughout all project phases, going beyond traditional post-occupancy evaluation practices to integrate design and construction choices for more effective monitoring.

Linnean helped the project team develop a view of performance that is measurable and meaningful by considering the entire building and all of its systems in a comprehensive way. This whole-systems thinking emphasizes connections between building systems and processes and improves communication among professionals and stakeholders throughout the life of the project.
