Energy Evaluation were instructed by BPHA to provide thermal analysis and thermography in support of the proposed refurbishment and redevelopment of 6 high rise flats and 8 of 2-storey blocks. The assessment modelled the potential reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions as a result of the enhancements proposed by BE1 Architects. The enhancements included improvements to the external fabric and also reconfiguring of external balconies.
A combination of EDSL Tas (Dynamic Simulation)and NHER Plan Assessor was used to provide the calculations indicated that the proposed enhancements across the development could lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 44% relative to the existing buildings.
