High Performance Buildings and Occupant Comfort

January 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for a joint presentation from ASHRAE San Joaquin :


High Performance Buildings and Occupant Comfort

GBCI Approved | 1 CE Hour | 0920010410
AIA Approved | 1 LU | SIMMONDS01

This lecture illustrates that the Predicted Mean Vote/Percentage Persons Dissatisfied (PMV/PPD) can be used to produce optimal designs for a number of different applications. One application was to evaluate an existing building to provide the owner with information on how to improve occupant comfort and improve building efficiency.

Previous work by Simmonds have shown that the effects on comfort results when varying clothing levels and metabolic rates of occupants is relatively small compared to changes in the engineered variables such as dry bulb temperatures, humidity, air velocity and mean radiant exchange. This lecture will show the results of the design process for each of the buildings explaining the intricacies of each solution and show that the new ASHRAE standard 55 can be used as an effective design and analysis tool for modern designs.
