Dataset for "Going active: How do people envision the next generation of buildings?''

The recently launched Active Building Code (ABCode) offers guidance on minimising the environmental impact of the next generation of buildings termed Active Buildings (ABs). This dataset reflects our two-stage investigation into the stakeholder perceptions of ABs and, in particular, their statistical analysis using a logistic regression model in R.

Keywords:
Active Buildings, decarbonisation, stakeholder engagement
Subjects:
Civil engineering and built environment

Data collection method:

This dataset reflects our two-stage investigation into the stakeholder perceptions of Active Buildings. In the first stage, we collected thoughts on the future of the built environment through a series of online focus group discussions with 30 industry experts. In the second stage, we quantified the ideas that arose from the first stage through an online survey of 30 academics and researchers.
