11 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 11 NE01 Building Upgrade Strategy: 1.Building-Wide Ventilation: Split HVAC with Natural Ventilation 2.Façade Improvements 3.Integration of Heat Recovery in Ventilation System 4.Lighting Upgrades 5.Additional Interventions

12 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 12 1.Building-Wide Ventilation: Separation and Natural Ventilation Radiative conditioning system Dedicated outdoor air ventilation system (driven by air quality not heating) Natural Ventilation through installation of operable windows along facade

13 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING 13 Night Flushing Effect – Transsolar Office Effect of opening windows

14 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 14 Thermal Comfort Level With Split HVAC and Natural Ventilation (incl. nighttime flushing)

15 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 15 2.Façade Improvements Double Glazed Windows with High Quality Frame Internal Insulation Addition

16 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 16 3.Integration of Heat Recovery in Ventilation System Heat Recovery Installation in Central Air Handling Units Unit-by-Unit Investigation to determine best heat recovery solution

17 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 17 Final Thermal Comfort Level

18 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING Recommendations 18 4.Lighting Improvements LED Lighting in common spaces (bathrooms, corridors, etc.) Occupation and Daylight controls in common spaces Vacancy controls in offices and classrooms

19 TRANSSOLARKLIMAENGINEERING 19 5.Additional Interventions Natural ventilation and shading in cafeteria atrium space Replacement of hot water systems for bathrooms with electrical instantaneous hot water heaters
