Building, Environment, Technology and Simple Construction
Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements
Your task is split into three parts:
- Provide clarification about the energy implications of your final proposals, in particular:
The relative levels of embodied energy in the systems that you recommended.
The approximate estimated annual heat loss (in kWh of energy) from the buildings (you should assume an annual average outside temperature based on the chosen location of your site).
- Discuss the performance requirements for the windows, doors and finishes that could be used in the buildings, in the context of the purpose of the buildings.
- Provide a Gantt chart showing the building sequence from site clearance to final landscaping, including the provision of external services. This chart should be an overview containing no more than twenty activities; you should assume the durations for each activity and have an accompanying commentary.
