While emergency functionality was a significant consideration for Royal Jubilee's PCC, a LEED Gold-certified medical, surgical, and mental health inpatient facility designed by CannonDesign (former Vancouver, British Columbia, office), the primary goal in incorporating natural ventilation
was to create a more patient-centric environment, says David Leadbetter, Royal Jubilee's director of special projects.
Other buildings the client operated had geothermal wells, composting toilets and used natural ventilation
, so they were very familiar with and comfortable operating and maintaining these systems.
architectural guidelines allow the use of operable windows and require consideration of natural ventilation
as a means of energy savings where conditions permit (FGI 2014).
Hence, more explorations should be conducted to preserve the aesthetic heritage of the wood carving panels, which at the same time provides effective natural ventilation
In this context, energy is needed to optimize drying, as well as optimal conditions for mass exchange; in the case of naturally ventilated solar dryer of coffee, during the day (where there is availability of solar energy), sufficient natural ventilation
area should be maintained to facilitate mass exchange (vapor water) with the purpose of increasing efficiency.
For buildings with natural ventilation
, the researchers found that while fresh air could reduce sick building symptoms, it also increased the number of respiratory issues workers experienced.
To quantify the natural ventilation
savings that the occupants have missed, 75F (23.
IVANOVA & VAN STADEN (2010) observed that the natural ventilation
eliminated the problems with hiperhydricity in Aloe polyphylla plants.
Literature review shows that the most commonly used multizone network models for natural ventilation
are COMIS (Feustel 1999) and CONTAM (Walton and Dols 2006).
The building will have a double-layered wind-pressurised facade that allows natural ventilation
in all weather conditions.
In the top-floor apartments of multi-storey apartment buildings with natural ventilation
the air change is typically very low.
A third architectural strategy found in early industrial buildings was their effective provision of natural ventilation
in the era before air conditioning.
