Background

SURE, is a project implemented by Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) and UNDP, and funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) aiming to establish a systematic approach for Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) to implement benchmarked, standardized tools and methodologies for measuring and reporting climate-resilient, resource-efficient, and urban-developed city.

The project’s primary objective is to assist the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) in improving the quality of life for its citizens and comply with the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) via support for more sustainable resource-efficient urban planning and targeted low-carbon interventions in the municipal buildings and street lighting sub-sectors.

The project is designed to promote low-carbon buildings in Greater Amman Municipality, and eventually in other municipalities and cities in Jordan, through the application of Building Energy Codes, in particular, the Thermal Insulation Code for new buildings and retrofit guidelines for existing buildings. The project will directly support the implementation of the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan 2016, and the National Green Growth Plan 2016. This will be achieved through four outcomes: (i) putting in place planning and monitoring frameworks to foster accelerated low-carbon development in GAM and benchmark progress against established international standards; (ii) strengthening the enabling conditions, methodologies and tools in GAM for enforcing regulatory frameworks for EE buildings and street lighting; (iii) an integrated climate monitoring and finance framework is established for the development of urban NAMAs, and appropriate financial de-risking tools are identified and supported to promote adoption of EE measures in buildings attached to MRV systems; and (iv) selected proof-of-concept mitigation interventions to operationalize the outputs under the previous outcomes.

The project will provide technical and logistical support to set up a Sustainable Buildings Unit (SBU) within the JNBC body to take the lead in the enforcement of building energy codes, and in particular the thermal insulation of building envelopes in addition to and oversee the administration of GAM incentives for promoting low-carbon buildings as mandated by the project document. The SBU will interact with the Engineering Office responsible for supervising the construction of the building to ensure that the energy-related aspects of the building design are respected according to the Building Codes. Thus, capacity building activities for the SBU in the areas most relevant to the project interventions including building energy codes, resource efficiency, and urban planning will be enabled during the setup stage of the SBU to ensure that it is up to date in all aspects of the project.

Objectives

The main objective of this assignment is to prepare a training-kit that include  a procedure manual for carrying -out onsite inspection for thermal Insulation of Building Envelope, and training manual for contractors that aim to  develop confidence, knowledge and skills for workers in implementing thermal insulation systems in compliance with the national code.

  This training-kit will be a comprehensive guidance for the SBU staff both Engineers and inspectors    as well as the contractors with the necessary capacity building in implementing thermal insulation systems in new construction and how   to conduct the onsite inspection.
