Architectural Solutions Effect on Energy Efficiency at College Buildings
Dr. Reham El-Dessuky Hamed
Abstract: Architectural design solutions can be employed to achieve greater energy efficiency at any building. However, currently this possibility is not sufficiently utilized. The paper provides a comparative analysis of architectural solutions in college building, presenting the ones that not only allow for a reduction in energy losses through the external envelope especially the roof of a building considering the local climatic conditions, but also make it possible to increase the energy efficiency. The research problem represents the absence of a clear methodology for assessing the energy performance of college buildings after the Works. The study aims to raise the energy efficiency in Universities and Colleges Buildings via create architectural design solution and building design tools which estimating the design interactions within a building. These interactions include the use of energy (electricity for lighting, heating and cooling), climatic conditions (ventilation, daylight and thermal loads) and heat generated by building's occupants.
