Description of module content:

Assessment of thermal and lighting loads for a given building and the impact of noise on internal environment. The module will introduce conventional as well as more modern, energy efficient practice. The three 'e's - economy, energy and environmental impact of building services shall be addressed.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: asess heating and cooling building energy loads on a steady state basis;
LO2: design energy efficient systems to provide the desired internal thermal and visual environment;
LO3: evaluate the impact of noise on the internal environment;
LO4: specify the lighting requirements for the internal environment;
LO5: carry out Life-cycle assessment of building materials;
LO6: explore the potential for using renewable energy sources in buildings.
