Study on the Impact of Planning and Materials in Energy Consumptions of a Building at Al-hail in Sultanate of Oman

Salim Said Al Hammadi, Amritha Ajeej


Abstract: Green building or sustainable building is an ecofriendly concept established by civil engineers to increase the efficiency of buildings in terms of energy, water, and materials, over the entire life cycle of the building. This study is aimed to develop a sustainable building at Al-Hail (Oman) with high energy efficiency and lower cost. Considering the wind and solar directions plan was selected. Based on the selection of materials and method, two proposals were considered for the simulation in Revit 2016 software [Proposal 1 (Green Roof + Double Glazed Windows + AAC Blocks + Terrazzo tiles) and Proposal 2 (Normal Roof + Single Glazed Windows + Hollow Blocks + Oman Marble)] were compared. The parameters identified were cost, thermal properties and U-values of the materials for the building. It was observed that estimated energy used in Proposal 1 due to air conditioning reduced 62 % than Proposal 2 because of selected materials with high thermal resistance performance. The study enlighten the facts of conservation of energy by utilizing the available resources with minimum cost.
