IBPSA- Mixed-Mode Office Building

The aim of this project is to design and test a mixed mode ventilation strategy for an office building located in New Delhi, India. Using the provided weather file, the annual climatic data was analyzed and used for the formulation of a building strategy. The competition requires compliance with thermal comfort ranges i.e. 20.3 deg C to 26.7 deg C indoors and an assessment of air quality (CO2) when natural ventilation is used.
In addition, the proposed scheme must detail opening sizes, furniture layout and facade details. The design needs to demonstrate that all these features operate under the ventilation scheme while reducing the overall energy demand.
