These guidelines result from experience gained in the European HOPE project. They
contain advice on how to design, build and maintain buildings to ensure good indoor
environment quality together with high energy performance.
The guidelines are organised according to main issues such as indoor air quality, thermal
comfort, etc. These are dedicated to designers and architects, but building occupants may also
take advantage of several recommendations given in this booklet.
