Rapid Building Performance Assessment of Rwanda Development Board (RDB) Headquarters, Kigali, Rwanda

At a Glance

The objective of the rapid building assessment is to take stock of the performance of RDB focusing on energy efficiency, water efficiency and waste management practices and the associated costs. This has been carried out by conducting a walkthrough audit followed by recommendations to promote efficient energy, water and waste management practices in existing government owned public buildings with an aim to convert them into a green building.

The scope of the rapid building assessment is limited to evaluating the resource efficiency of the building on three parameters namely energy, water and waste. The assessment does not focus on the structural integrity, emergency preparedness, and indoor environmental quality aspects of the building.
