About the Project
Our role was to define the CO2 footprint of the proposed new Carehome at West Hill, Dartford in order to demonstrate compliance with Part L2A and produce a draft EPC for the building.
We were also asked to perform overheating and fresh air ventilation simulations in order to demonstrate that the occupants would receive a sufficient amount of fresh air and that they would not suffer from overheating.
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, extent of overheating and the amount of fresh air entering the building through the opening windows.
