This paper summarises the objectives and initial achievements of BEPAC, a recently formed club based in the UK which in many respects parallels the stated goals of IBPSA. The mission of BEPAC is "to improve the quality of building performance by encouraging the use and development of environmental prediction methods for buildings". The intention is to promote an inter-disciplinary approach to the use of prediction methods, and to bring together in one forum all groupings within the construction industry, from academic research, through software developers to designers and building owners and operators.
