A BMS (Building Management System) can be installed in all buildings to monitor the "health" status of buildings. This would be immensely facilitated by the enforcement of BIM into the construction industry. Proper policies (extent areas of jurisdiction etc.) and assessment criteria (Energy/Carbon/Structural Performance Ratings etc.) would be put in place upon consultation and advise by industry experts and stakeholders for acceptance. Should this be accepted, the recourse would be to setup a regulating authority or creation of a department within an existing council/county/regional authority with the sole mandate of monitoring the health status of buildings.(individually or collectively)
The "health" status of buildings would be monitored periodically and punitive measures enforced or incentives given to maintain the agreeable "health" status of buildings by the building custodians.
