User tests were organized to improve the housing passport. In addition, a feedback button was added to the housing passport to query users' experiences. This button also examines to what extent the housing passport can become a guideline for the implementation of energy-saving measures during the renovation process.

In this way, different parties get their influence on the design process and its result from different approaches
