Sample text

Are there any areas in the building that require different conditions? Are there some areas with different hours of occupancy, or with different requirements, such as a computer room? The fact that some areas may require closer control of conditions and necessitate more complex systems does not necessarily mean that this approach is needed for the whole building. It is important to consider the differing needs of different areas and different occupants rather than go for a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Increased occupant control can give improved occupant satisfaction with the internal environmental conditions, particularly in naturally ventilated or nonair conditioned buildings. Localised control can be as simple as openable windows, task lighting, local desk fans, adjustable window blinds and/or thermostatic radiator valves or it can be far more complex with individually switched lights and dimmers and localised sensing and control of some types of air conditioning and heating systems. This will require adequate plant zoning and can mean more controls are required.

Is the intent to design for a naturally ventilated rather than a highly serviced building? If the initial approach is to consider a building that will require less in the way of complex services such as air conditioning then this has fundamental implications for both the building design and for the internal comfort conditions that will be achievable in the building. The decision to let internal conditions vary within wider limits, and leave some uncontrolled, is a fundamental one and will need to be considered as part of the main decision process (see below).
