BSER&T Special Issue - Overheating and Indoor Air Quality

As cities grow and pressures from a changing climate and limiting energy resources increase, these issues increasingly drive the design and management of buildings.

In the UK, there has been much attention paid to the winter performance of buildings in order to reduce heat losses. However, there must also be consideration of the effect that highly insulated and airtight spaces will have on indoor air quality (IAQ) and overheating.

This Special Issue (March 2015), commissioned by the Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change network at University of Oxford,  contains 9 published papers on overheating and IAQ.

It is available to download, free to CIBSE members, via the BSER&T page.
