Often corridors in apartment buildings suffer from persistent over-heating. The growth in popularity of district heating and hot water plant often leads to relatively high heat gains in common corridors, and this is exacerbated by the fact that buildings have higher levels of insulation. There are a number of solutions, ranging from natural or mechanical ventilation through to cooling. This Seminar focuses on the options available to developers and designers.
What you'll learn:
Design considerations relating to ventilation measures in residential corridors
Using smoke control systems as a dual purpose system to provide environmental ventilation – the options and limitations
Considerations regarding control systems.
