It is evident that effective Natural Ventilation (NV) in buildings can significantly improve indoor air quality, reduce building’s carbon footprint and avoid Sick Building Syndrome associated with HVAC systems. How to achieve the optimum designs for the naturally ventilated buildings fit for the local climate conditions is big challenge at the early design stage. Numerical modelling of natural ventilation using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is capable of testing the design concept as well as evaluating its ventilation effectiveness. It is crucial to carry out this exercise as early as possible .
By working closely with the building industry, our expert team has successfully modelled a wide range of building types for natural ventilation designs. Our past projects include theatres, college/school campus buildings, office buildings, dining halls and gas storage facilities. These exercises had helped our clients to optimize their designs, secure planning permission, as well as win contracts.
