Description

Passive design strategies are best incorporated during early design stage. This course shows a practical example of a project where the client was very clear on creating a residence that was an energy efficient green building. As sustainability consultant, EDS was part of a team that was highly enthusiastic about designing a green building. The project being in India in the city of Ahmedabad having a hot and dry climate had its own design challenges, but also great opportunities for an integrated design process.

Designing a green building requires all team members to be on board with the sustainability goals of the project so that the project is steered in the right direction from the beginning. This project achieved this at the early design stage. As a result, many passive design strategies were analysed to finally result in a building with significantly reduced cooling loads.

The building envelope as well as the air conditioning system were optimized in this project through an iterative process. In this course, only the façade optimization process is covered.

 The course will walk you through the thought process, approach and iterative design process, strategies implemented and lessons learnt at the end of this project. 

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who is interested to learn about integrated design process
  • If you are a professional from the building industry, this course will provide insight on a real project
  • Clients and project owners who would hire a team to execute their new building project will benefit from understanding what is an integrated design process

The module introduces the course, the intent and how it is organized which will help you understand what to expect and how to plan the course accordingly

Preview 02:19

This module introduces the project which is further discussed in the subsequent modules. 

Preview 03:30

The module will walk you through the process of solar studies of the site and building form alongwith inferences

Preview 04:55

The inferences from the solar studies is applied on the building design to analyse different shading strategies and understand what works best

module 3
09:12

The next step is to understand the quantity and quality of daylight in the building given the facade design. The daylight levels were studied for different options of facade design.

module 4
03:45

The module will explain how ventilation was analysed in the design process

module 5
04:12

The design process now culminates in the selection of materials and understand what is best for the project. Moreover, a summary of all the design strategies studied so far in the process is also given. Further, the learning and experience of an integrated design process is summarized in the end of the module.
