  • NEW: The Architecture & Engineering of Downdraught Cooling | CIBSE School Design Group
    active or a combination of the two and hence the term Passive Hybrid Downdraught Cooling PHDC PHDC has the potential demonstrated through the successful operation of a number of buildings around the world over the last 15 years to achieve very significant savings in electrical energy Fans which may account for 25 35 of the electrical energy required in a conventional air conditioned building are avoided In hot dry regions energy savings can be further increased by 5 10 by evaporating water within the air stream to create the downdraught known as Passive Downdraught Evaporative Cooling PDEC A hybrid downdraught cooling system combines both passive and active downdraught cooling techniques Such a system can then function in both hot and dry conditions using PDEC and warm and humid conditions using chilled water cooling coils or de humidifier and is therefore applicable in many locations around the world including the UK HOME WHO WE ARE WHAT WE DO MEMBERSHIP PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS SDG BULLETINS MINUTES NEWS CONTACT LATEST NEWS 16 Feb Passivhaus school design SCEME Spring Meeting Wednesday 14th March 2012 During the meeting there will be 17 Oct Was it the bankers the builder the facility manager or the government

  • Linking design quality and education | CIBSE School Design Group
    interaction with and contribution to the local community and public well being in general Build quality and sustainability Build quality is a concept that speaks for itself and sustainability is a topic that cannot be meaningfully dealt with in the confines of this paper Nevertheless important to the argument presented here is that well designed learning environments should provide a platform for wider learning agendas ranging from the issues of citizenship and sustainability For example CABE presents the sustainable character of the building in terms of the use of natural light and ventilation the consideration of alternative forms of energy and the choice of robust materials from sustainable sources as a means to highlight and disseminate environmental issues Design quality in practice From the above analysis it is clear that several of the attributes of design quality are of a subjective nature and will be given varying importance by different stakeholders in the BSF programme It goes without saying that these stakeholders e g contractors architects representatives of government bodies and consultants have a significant impact on the materialisation of design quality The following section explores these stakeholders perceptions of what the important attributes of good design are and how they are operated in practice I think design quality is really interesting and generally very misunderstood And I think CABE keep trying to describe to people what design quality is and it keeps being misheard Architect 1 What is good design Obviously there are different views because there always will be in an industry but I m sorry to say that rock bottom is I just do not think many people would know a good design if it hit them in the face like a wet fish Therein lies the problem Contractor 1 Fitness for purpose and educational transformation The foremost goal of the refurbishment and construction of new or refurbishment school projects is to achieve educational transformation and this is the principal criterion against which success will be measured In this respect there is unanimous agreement regarding the necessity of understanding the educational nature of the school and the physical environment of the building Several government bodies address the importance of considering and accommodating the new teaching and learning agendas such as every child matters and personalised learning in the school design I think we are aware that actually we are designing schools that are 20th century schools rather than 21st century schools in the sense of they are still largely departmentally organised and so on rather than organised in a freer form that a personalised learning might determine DfES representative Thus there is a belief that the introduction and implementation of these educational approaches to various degrees are dependent on the design of school buildings Yet there is real concern regarding the ability of those involved in the design process to address the rapidly changing pedagogies The ability to predict and visualise the way in which the pedagogy will change in the future is seen as a major

  • Actual vs Designed Performance of Schools | CIBSE School Design Group
    use of sensitivity analysis and the collection of data from a number of schools The aim of this work is to investigate various factors which may differ from design expectation to find out why they vary and by how much and to explore how this variation from predicted values is likely to affect the energy use estimates This will help the design team provide a range of likely energy use instead of a single predicted energy consumption figure together with a list of influential factors which need to be managed and addressed in order for the building to achieve its energy targets It will enable both the design team and building management and occupants to understand how they can influence their school s energy performance DOWNLOAD PDF HOME WHO WE ARE WHAT WE DO MEMBERSHIP PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS SDG BULLETINS MINUTES NEWS CONTACT LATEST NEWS 16 Feb Passivhaus school design SCEME Spring Meeting Wednesday 14th March 2012 During the meeting there will be 17 Oct Was it the bankers the builder the facility manager or the government The anatomy of a public private partnership dispute BARTLETT SCHOOL OF GRADUATE STUDIES AND CIBSE SCHOOL DESIGN GROUP request the pleasure of your

  • Winter Indoor Air Quality, Thermal Comfort and Acoustic Performance of Newly Built Schools in England | CIBSE School Design Group
    demanding it was possible to achieve natural ventilation designs that meet the criteria for indoor ambient noise levels when external noise levels are reasonably low The most telling conclusion of the research is the degree to which most classrooms in the sample have met the requirement of not exceeding 1500 ppm of CO 2 averaged over the day but how few will meet the need to readily provide 8 l s per person under the easy control of the occupants It would seem that the basic requirement of 1500 ppm of CO 2 is achieved as a consequence of the window areas being just sufficient to provide that level of fresh air approximately 5 l s per person at low and intermittent occupancy The thermal comfort in the classrooms monitored was mostly acceptable but temperatures tended to be much higher in practice than the design assumed This research has ben carried out by AECOM University College London The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies BSRIA and SRL Published in Building and Environment HOME WHO WE ARE WHAT WE DO MEMBERSHIP PUBLICATIONS RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS SDG BULLETINS MINUTES NEWS CONTACT LATEST NEWS 16 Feb Passivhaus school design SCEME Spring Meeting Wednesday 14th March
