TWO-DAY WORKSHOP ON NATURAL VENTILATION: Natural Ventilation Techniques to Ensure Health and Comfort in Building Design
In the context of rising energy demand and uncertainties of non-renewable energy sources, it is an imperative that building industry professionals integrate passive design techniques in the design of buildings. Building design can be enhanced, while meeting local statutory requirements, by the use of natural ventilation towards ensuring user comfort. Computer-based simulation techniques are often used to predict the performance at an early design stage as well as at advanced stage in view of the interaction between building and the climate. It is expected that the concepts and methodology presented in this workshop will help the participants to comprehend and interpret the benefits of using analytical techniques for modeling natural ventilation.
Upon completion of the workshop the participant will be able to
Apply rules of thumb and simulation tools to assess natural ventilation of indoor spaces with respect to national (i.e. BNBC) and international (e.g. BREEAM and LEED) codes and standards.
Correlate simulation performance results with architectural design parameters.
Recommend design strategies to incorporate natural ventilation satisfying both aesthetic and technical requirements.
Select the best possible option for passive design from alternatives.
CPD CREDITS: The technical contents of the workshop are of a standard to qualify as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of 10 hours.
Who should attend: Architects, Interior designers, Engineers, Ergonomists, Energy auditors, Researchers, Academics, Building/factory Managers and related professionals who wish to develop working knowledge in Natural Ventilation.
Background Skills: Experience in computer based drawing skills such using Autocad or Sketchup would be helpful but not essential.
Training Materials: Participants will be given training kits and work sheets. Tea and lunch will be served during the two day workshop.
Assistants: Participants with a disability should notify early on along with nature of disability so that assistance can be arranged.
Number of Seats: 12 (Tickets will be sold first come first serve basis).

Green Architecture Cell
Department of Architecture, Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh
Green Architecture Cell evolved as an outcome of a joint research initiative by the Department of Architecture, Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology, and promotion of social & environmental standards in the industry (PSES) - a project supported by GIZ on behalf of BMZ titled: Promoting green architecture concept in Bangladesh towards implementing Green Strategies in Building Design. Grace aims to promote green architecture concept by way of advocacy, training, design and research in Bangladesh. This is an open forum for architects, engineers, developers, civil society members, academics, researchers, students, stakeholders and individuals interested in green architecture in the Tropics.
