An Overview To Passive Considerations In Façade Design And The Effect On Energy Performance

Program Description

Optimal design decisions relating to the envelope are crucial to managing the energy performance of a building, particularly around passive design strategies of the façade. During this 1-hour online course, you will learn how geometric and materiality considerations can differ between design stages. We will look at goals and objectives relating to the façade at SD, DD and CD, and the utilization of different software applications to achieve these goals. There are no prerequisites for this course.

Course Credits

1 CEU | HSW

Learning Objectives
  1. Determine the differing end uses of energy consumption affected by the façade, and how they relate to overall building energy performance.
  2. Utilize building information modelling tools to meet project design stage requirements regarding façade performance.
  3. Investigate solutions around the geometry and materials of the façade to optimize passive design strategies of the building envelope, and at what stage these decisions are best made.
  4. Review case studies of façade design strategies on projects at different design stages – Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documentation.
