Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) construction and renovation need an enhanced systematic approach for the quality control of the entire process. This is the first prerequisite to reduce the gap between designed (predicted) and actual performances of buildings, both in terms of energy efficiency and in indoor environmental quality. The most important part of this enhanced quality control approach is a fully qualified and equipped workforce, capable to implement, execute and perform all the necessary labor actions with a full understanding of the responsibility of
