Title: Environmental design guide for naturally ventilated and daylit offices

Ref Code: BR345
Authors: D Rennie and F Parand

Abstract1: Sound decisions early in the design process can reduce energy consumption by up to 50 %. They can also double daylight levels and avoid overheating in summer. The design tables in this guide predict the maximum internal air temperature on a hot summer day, and the level of daylight on an overcast day in winter, for common cases such as rectangular rooms with a window in one or both ends. The guide also describes concisely and with 150 illustrations, the principles for designing well daylit offices that will not overheat in summer.
