Hilson Moran at Facade Design Engineering & Delivery Europe 2010

 Permanent link   All Posts[13/10/2010] Dan Jestico, Hilson Moran’s Head of Research & Development spoke at Facade Design Engineering & Delivery Europe on 12 October 2010. Using a case study of Pinnacle in London,Dan spoke about how energy use and carbon emissions can be minimised through double skin facades and mixed mode ventilation. His presentation included insights on

  • The use of computational fluid (CFD) to accurately simulate facade performance from the start
  • Designing the facade to ensure thermal regulation of internal space
  • Using double skin facades with mixed mode ventilation.
  • How to efficiently control this through the building management system
  • Reducing internal heat gains and challenges of extracting unwanted thermal energy
  • How to ensure enough air flows through the facade cavity into the office space
  • Removing unwanted draughts in the office space
  • Meeting the design/engineering balance between maximum floor space and maximum facade performance
