The workshop was divided into two segments: Introduction to Learn-BPE project and technicalities and providing context to understand the need to BPE in the construction industry will be discussed. Thereafter, case studies carried out by CEPT and OBU students were discussed along with curriculum integration of Learn BPE in India. Six case studies for rated buildings in India were presented with details of on-site measurements, challenges, results, analysis and findings. The curriculum integration of Learn-BPE in three modules were discussed.
