About the Project
Our role was to define the CO2 footprint of the proposed new Performing Arts Block at Hitchin Boys School in Hertfordshire, in order to demonstrate compliance with Part L2A and produce an EPC for the building.
We were also asked to calculate the average daylight factors for the classrooms as well as perform overheating and fresh air ventilation simulations in accordance with BB 101.
A dynamic simulation model was produced using EDSL TAS software using the architectural and services information provided. From this one model we was able to calculate the carbon emissions, daylight received, extent of overheating and the amount of fresh air entering the building through the opening windows.
