This paper presents an analysis of the energy performance of office buildings built in Santiago between 2005 and 2011. Based on information collected in-situ with facility managers and municipal archives, a database was developed, focused on characterizing the shape, façade systems and energy consumption of the buildings. Statistical techniques were applied to achieve complete energy consumption data given the difficulty in obtaining consistent information from administrators. The total sample was divided into clusters based on the shape and of façades types, to achieve a coherent explanation of building performance according to its Window to Wall Ratio and façade type.
