Measured indoor temperatures, thermal comfort and overheating risk: Post-occupancy evaluation of low energy houses in the UK
There is growing concern in Western Europe that higher insulation and air tightness of residential buildings leads to increased overheating risk. This paper discusses temperature monitoring from identical houses in the ...
Measured indoor temperatures, thermal comfort and overheating risk: Post-Occupancy evaluation of low energy houses in the UK
There is growing concern in Western Europe that higher insulation and air tightness of residential buildings may lead to increased overheating risk during the summer. This risks undoing the energy savings as it may lead ...
Thermography methodologies for detecting energy related building defects
Thermography is becoming more widely used amongst construction professionals for energy related defect detection in buildings. Until quite recently, most of the research and practical use of building thermography has centred ...
The actual performance of aspiring low energy social houses in the United Kingdom
This paper compares the actual energy performance of six flats and two houses built to low energy standards (Code for Sustainable Homes Levels 4 and 5) with a near identical flat and house built to minimum compliance only ...

(Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM)., 2012-09-03)
The demand for high performance 'green' or 'sustainable' buildings is becoming increasingly important in the retail industry. Large construction companies in this sector have started to show leadership by working with their ...
Stakeholders perspective on sustainable technology selection to achieve zero carbon retail buildings
(Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM)., 2013-09-02)
In the design and construction of sustainable retail buildings, there are various stakeholders involved with the overall aim of selecting appropriate sustainable technologies to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. ...
A Decision Making System for Selecting Sustainable Technologies for Retail Buildings
(International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction., 2013-05-06)
The implementation of sustainable technologies can improve the energy and carbon efficiency of existing retail buildings. However, the selection of an appropriate sustainable technology is a complex task due to the large ...
A preliminary investigation of the potential for thermographic images to influence householders' understanding of home energy consumption
This paper explores the potential connections between the thermographic (infrared) imaging of domestic properties and the impact (on energy conservation behaviours) of showing householders infrared images of their homes. ...
