CESA 7100– Energy Modelling for Building Professionals
This course introduces the principles, procedures and benefits of energy modelling to enable building
professionals to usefully and efficiently incorporate energy modelling into the design process. This will
include a review of building orientation, envelope design, space configurations and massing, opportunities
to minimize the need for mechanical equipment (e.g., passive design and net-zero solutions), complemented
by a field trip to a building site. Attention will be given to conceptualizing the building as a whole
system, including integrated design and project delivery processes that yield high-performance results.
The course will also address the implications of energy modelling in the general practices of consulting
architects and engineers and the challenges that arise during and after construction.
