To help architects and consultants deliver low maintenance, energy efficient designs within the built environment, Monodraught have collaborated with IES to develop Performance Components - a revolutionary way of modelling Natural Ventilation and Natural Cooling systems using the Virtual Environment Suite. This research aims to develop user-focused design principles for energy-efficient office renovations. The goal of this is to improve the quality and comfort of workspaces without compromising on energy-saving goals.
At the same time, interventions to improve the energy efficiency of homes ... However, the performance of this technique strongly depends on various parameters, such as climate, urban form and building characteristics (geometrical and thermal). With the aim of showing how natural ventilation can be successfully applied to existing office buildings in many different urban climates, an extensive parametric study has been carried out that takes into account the factors ...
