Building Performance Assessment Studio
This studio course deals with the practical assessment of the performance of existing buildings. Students will have the opportunity to apply investigative, survey, measurement and testing techniques, use assessment protocols to assess the performance of real buildings, and use this information to suggest ways to improve performance. The course includes assessment of the building fabric, mechanical systems, energy use, indoor environment, and user satisfaction. An important component of student evaluation is the preparation of a comprehensive technical report including an interpretation of results.
