The unit examines thermal, visual and aural environmental principles. Students will critique theoretical principles in relation to their specific disciplinary role in shaping the built environment to respond to different climates and the needs of key stakeholders specifically users and clients. They will engage in a series of case studies to examine thermal, visual and aural environmental theoretical principles and practical application. The unit will challenge students to evaluate the appropriate selection of environmental systems to enhance thermal, visual and aural comfort. Students will analyse building envelope materials and assemblies to respond to different climatic conditions in order to enhance thermal comfort. Students will appraise various lighting concepts as well as colour classifications. The unit will introduce the application of day light modeling and lighting installation design with specific emphasis on integration control, computational methods and software for lighting design to enable students to make informed judgments in relation to their role as built environment professionals. Students will engage in discussion of aural environment and acoustic design of rooms in regards to reverberation times and speech intelligibility, suitable material selection, noise problems, sound transmission through structures, and environmental noise control. Computational methods are introduced for evaluation and assessment of acoustical environments to support effective decision making to improve built environment performance.
Building performance simulation 35%, report 35%, case study 30%
