New additions include much more guidance about space and weight allowances and benchmarks for CO2 emissions. There is clearer guidance about costs, which now includes energy consumption, maintenance, operation and life-cycle costs. There is also guidance about compliance with Part L, renewable technologies and the air permeability of buildings.
