Green Building Specialists are specialized in designing high performance, energy- and resource-efficient buildings, tailored to the needs and well-being of occupants with an exceptional focus on minimizing their environmental and ecological impact. They advise on building massing, building envelope and orientation, create energy models to guide energy efficiency decisions, analyse water requirements to guide water efficiency decision and devise resource conservation strategies.
Module 1 : Weather and Climate: Built Environment Context
This unit is about understanding and analysing climate of a region for building design.
Weather Attributes & Measurement
Human Comfort Indices
Module 2 : Passive Design for Building
This unit is about developing design capability to respond to local climate and site conditions to minimize energy usage without compromising on human comfort.
Shade and Shading Design Principles (Solar Design)
Natural Ventilation for Buildings
Heat transfer mechanisms in Buildings (passive heat gain and losses)
Module 3 : Light and LIT Environment
