5.30pm (6pm start) – 7pm
Guest Speakers and Presentations
Daylight Simulation – Bianca Toth, Woods Bagot
Bianca will be presenting recent projects from Woods Bagot that incorporate simulation into the design process, along with a current development initiative for a customisable building performance application that she is working on in collaboration with colleagues globally.
Early Stage Simulation: Friend or Foe? – Quentin Jackson, Aurecon
All too often Environmental Modellers are reticent to undertake modelling at an early stage of a design – instead opting for a “meet the building code” approach. This results in missing the greatest opportunity for impact early on in a project, with decisions about fenestration location, shading typologies etc being bedded in very quickly without any investigation through modelling. Given we know as modellers that building performance simulation is an abstraction of reality, what is our aversion to just getting on with it and providing modelled advice to our clients? Quentin will discuss some examples of successes and missed opportunities where modelling has been used to develop a building and support the design teams decisions.
Resilient HVAC Design – Nicki Parker, AECOM
Nicki will discuss AIRAH’s approach to Resilient HVAC Design, and how the industry can use future climate projections to understand how buildings will perform throughout their intended design life. By considering peak loads, energy consumption and thermal comfort, the interaction of climate variability and building performance will be reviewed, ensuring that the spaces we design today remain comfortable and efficient in the future.
A $5 entry charge at the door will be collected to cover cost of refreshments
