Content

This unit addresses the coordination and integration of appropriate environmental systems including energy, thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics. Through the introduction of quantitative research methodologies, you will be able to evaluate and ascertain the salient problems occurring in building environments. The unit will challenge you to: understand and apply building performance principles relating to lighting and acoustics; applicable codes and standards; and, recognise the appropriate selection of materials and components related to environmental system principles to enhance thermal, visual and aural comfort.

You will be required to analyse building envelope and glazing materials to respond to climatic conditions in order to reduce mechanical equipment, energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Computational methods are introduced for evaluation and assessment of building performance to support effective decision making.
