 Training: Energy Efficiency in Building Design

March 9, 2017

Training: Energy Efficiency in Building Design
Building Envelopes for Energy Efficiency Design

3h-course

Organized by the Centre for Innovation and Technology (CIT)

After a first successful session on building energy context and physical principles, a second course will focus on envelope components to achieve energy efficiency in buildings for the Lebanese context.

WHO IS IT FOR:

Architects, engineers and building professionals intending to improve the energy efficiency of a building. Individuals considering a consultancy job in the energy saving field.

DELIVERED BY:
Dr. Talal Salem, Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, Notre Dame University

and

Dr. Elias Kinab, Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, Lebanese University

LOCATION:
Industrial Research Institute, Lebanese University Campus, Hadat, Baabda.

WHEN:
Thursday, March 9, 2017, from 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm

COURSE AIMS:
Create energy and financial savings by reducing energy consumption
Reduce CO2 emissions produced by a building
Assess the current energy consumption and create action plan on how to reduce consumption

COURSE CONTENT
The building envelope is a key element in designing energy efficient buildings. It constitutes the filter between the internal and external environment. The understanding of the façade impact on the energy use, GHC emissions and occupants comfort is fundamental to deliver performance-driven design of sustainable buildings.

This course covers the design principles for envelope design:
• Climate,
• Orientation,
• Inclination,
• Sun-path,
• Daylighting,
• Glass types and properties,
• Thermal performance of building envelopes.

REGISTRATION
50 USD per person

A certificate of participation will be provided at the end of the training.
Kindly confirm your participation to Ms. Manale Tabanji before March 7, by phone 05 465609 or by e-mail m.tabanji@elcim-lb.org
