Unformatted text preview: A Guide to the Energy Efficiency Design of Educational Buildings BUILDING HANDBOOK March 1998 ENERGY EFFICIENT DESIGN OF EDUCATIONAL BUILDINGS This guide is aimed at Project Managers, Architects, Services Engineers and the other members of the team involved in the design and planning of educational building projects. Its purpose is to set the standards and outline good practice on services for energy conservation and to highlight the main issues to be considered by the design team from the pre-planning stage of a project. Topics are not covered in depth, since a considerable quantity of useful information has already been published on this subject in recent years. These are detailed in Part 7 of this guide. Part 1 describes the approach required of a design team and the issues they should address at the pre-planning stage of a project. Part 2 introduces the major design issues regarding the building envelope. Part 3 refers to energy performance targets. Part 4 deals with energy efficient mechanical services. Part 5 deals with energy efficient electrical services. Part 6 deals with water usage. Part 7 refers to other publications and sources of information. Appendix A is a desktop checklist.

A considerable quantity of useful information has been published on energy efficiency in recent years. In England, the Department for Education and Employment’s Building Bulletin 87 - ‘Guidelines for Environmental Design in Schools 1997’ (which replaces Design Note 17 ‘Guidelines for Environmental Design and Fuel Conservation in Educational Buildings’ 1981) ( see 7.2 ) provides practical advice on standards and a companion document, the Building Research Establishment Conservation Support Unit (BRESCU)...
