Abstract

Making a structure eco-friendly and energy efficient should be one of the foremost requirements during the design phase so that it not only fulfills the needs of the present but also satisfies the demands of the future. Daylighting is one of the most critical areas to fulfil the above requirements. Recent studies highlight that in Europe, 70% of the office buildings’ lighting consumption is fulfilled by electricity resulting in additional energy requirements and CO2 emissions. This paper explains the role of daylighting in achieving energy savings by presenting different shading schemes to effectively daylight the space and also tries to find a way to minimise the use of artificial lighting by using different mitigation strategies. Annual glare, UDI (Useful Daylight Illuminance) and Daylight Autonomy have been used to quantify the impact of these strategies. Euston Tower, a 70s office building is analysed as part of this Thesis to present an alternative façade retrofit proposal.
