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.
