Challenge
With limited opportunity for intervention in the exterior cladding assemblies, the project was required to achieve strict energy performance targets to realize project funding.
Solution
Extensive thermal simulation and optimization were undertaken to evaluate critical window performance elements, including frame type and configuration, alignment with existing thermal insulation plane, and potential accessibility improvements through operability and hardware layouts. Modelling feedback was incorporated in the full-building energy analysis to ensure energy savings targets in the proposed design. Guarded, full-suite air leakage testing has been carried out to validate air leakage performance and to identify critical leakage areas, which can be addressed during window and mechanical replacement work.
