SHINE aims to drive sustainable building performance towards exemplary standards by encouraging and supporting clients and their supply chains to deliver leading performance standards.

In order to achieve its aims, SHINE has three main objectives:

  • BUILDING KNOWLEDGE – to gather  together information and evidence about leading national and international sustainability practices
  • RAISING AWARENESS – to undertake peer-review of sustainable buildings and to share information and knowledge about leading sustainability practices
  • DEMONSTRATING POSSIBILITIES – to promote sustainable projects and practices and to implement exemplary practices on real-life projects

SHINE will initially deliver its objectives by developing

  1. A knowledge base of national and international standards and practices
  2. A series of learning events about UK and international best practice
  3. Trials and case studies of exemplary projects and practices
