Description

Sustainable building design philosophy, strategies and practice. Materials, water, airflow and energy in buildings. High-performance, low energy buildings. Building performance simulation. Coordination and integration with other building design disciplines.

This course applies advanced principles of building physics, modelling and performance to the
practice of sustainable building design. A ‘whole building’ approach is taken to developing solutions
to design challenges, taking account of building energy and environmental performance and the
values, well-being and financial goals of building users and owners. The effects of building form,
materials, systems, occupants and environment on building sustainability are examined using case
studies and simulation analyses, with a focus on investigating building energy and environmental
performance at the early stages of the design process.

Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes this course should be able to apply advanced principles of
building physics, modelling and sustainability to the professional practice of:

 Developing building design concepts, strategies and technical solutions that respond to the
sustainability objectives of building owners, users and other stakeholders.
 Developing sustainability performance targets for energy and water use, environmental
emissions, well-being and impacts on communities and the environment, and applying
these targets to building design.
 Modelling and evaluating the effects of proposed building designs on the energy and
environmental performance of buildings.
 Communicating the physical basis for the sustainability performance of buildings, applying
knowledge of energy, water and airflow in buildings and the relationship between building
design and sustainability performance.
