  • Assess the influence of the building structure on internal conditions.
  • Compile relevant information on the internal spaces and the external environment that night influence the design ventilation rate.
  • Calculate the fresh-air requirement and ventilation rates in different units.
  • Justify a chosen ventilation strategy by comparison to alternatives.
  • Justify any energy recovery equipment included in the design and explain its operational strategy for conserving energy.
  • Appreciate relevant Statutory and Health and Safety Regulations and how they apply
