The iiSBE Urban Tool is a software platform that is designed to assess key performance indicators for urban neighbourhoods. The structure of the tool follows the concept developed in SBTool, a building performance assessment system ten years ago, which is a general framework that allows users to insert local context information and performance benchmarks, and to assess the performance of specific neighbourhoods. The system is used in 9 European cities and is now developed for other regions.
