QGBconf_2016 Workshop 02.pngNet Zero Building Design Principles

Instructor: Dr. Shady Attia, LEED AP, Head of Sustainable Building Design Lab (SBD), Univeristé de Liège (Ulg)

Fee: 750 QR per delegate

Brief:

This design workshop focuses on the definition and guidelines of Zero Energy Buildings in Hot Climates, with special focus on the passive and active solar design. The workshop will provide basic knowledge and concepts for supporting the decision making and integration of the different technologies and comfort requirements into the design process of Zero Energy Building Designs. Participants will be required to evaluate final design concepts for proposed designs that reflect their gained knowledge and experience.

Objectives:

This course addresses the skills and knowledge requirements
for carrying out energy simulations for energy efficient buildings including:
  • Understand the theoretical and operational principles of Zero Energy Buildings
  • Apply computer modeling and simulation to address high energy efficiency
  • Possess practical skills in envelope design, HVAC consideration and renewable energy systems
  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control of Zero Energy Building Constructions
Participants will be familiar with the concepts related to superinsulation, air-tight envelopes, high-performance window installation and passive house construction. Participants will become familiar with materials andconstructions, internal gains, operation controls, weather, HVAC systems and become aware of technical issues influencing the energy performance of buildings.


PARTICIPANTS PRE-WORKSHOP REQUIREMENT:

Windows laptop with software pre-installed (Software list to be sent to registrants prior to the workshop).

QGBconf_2016 Workshop 03.png IES <VE> Energy Modeling

Instructor: Michelle M Farrell, LEED, DGNB, M.ASHRAE
Head of the Middle East Division and BIM Expert, IES

Fee: 300 QR per delegate

Brief:

Whether working on a new build or renovation projects, building performance simulation software allows to test different design options, identify best passive solutions, compare low-carbon technologies, and draw conclusions on energy use, CO2 emissions, occupant comfort, light levels, airflow, QSAS, LEED, EPC ratings, and much more. In this session, we will introduce IES <Virtual Environment> simulation tools, and give an introductory training of how to use the different simulation tools.  The attendees will also have an option to continue with a further 2-day dedicated training should they wish to perform detailed simulations.

The full day workshop will provide an overview to IES <VE> Energy Modeling Software. the workshop will cover the following Topics:
introduction to Building Energy Modeling. Building Physics - Fundamentals of Energy Modeling. introduction toBuilding Energy Performance Analysis. IESVE as a tool for Energy Modeling. 3D Geometry Modeling for Building Simulation. Solar Analysis & Shading Calculations. Daylight Analysis. Natural Ventilation analysis and Dynamic Simulation. HVAC Loads and system Modelling. Energy Modeling in LEED as per ASHRAE 90.1.

Objectives

  • Building Physics – Fundamentals of Energy Modeling
  • Introduction to Energy Modeling & Building Energy Performance Analysis
  • introduction to IES<VE> as a tool for Energy Modeling
  • Introductory Training in the modules in the <VE> Software
