“Sustainable building design in practice” by Kaia Eichler, Team Manager Sustainable Building, Energy Management, ÅF, Sweden

Kaia Eichler´s topic is about how the design of buildings is influenced by nearly zero energy buildings regulation and environmental labelling systems from her own experience working as Energy Efficiency Coordinator with office buildings and hospitals and with Swedish labelling system Miljöbyggnad. Kaia will talk about the requirements and challenges the energy efficiency regulations sets on buildings and what it takes to be certified by environmental labelling systems.

“Sustainability principles and quality assurance systems for buildings” by Maija Krizmane, Riga Technical University, Latvia

Sustainable buildings allow to save money on all life cycle, as well as provide comfort for building users. Since the construction process is complicated, the meaning is often in details. In the presentation, we will look at the basic principles of sustainable construction, as well as the international building valuation systems and frameworks to ensure a high-quality result.

“Ventilation system modeling in BIM from practical viewpoint” by Jurģis Zemītis, Riga Technical University, Latvia

An explanation of the BIM, what is the LOD levels, the applications, and practical work pros and cons of trying to design everything in a high detail BIM model. Available databases. An overview of the pictures and videos how the project looks like when it was developed in the BIM environment.

“Dynamic simulation – an irreplaceable helper in the design of energy-efficient buildings. Practical applications.” by Alise Šulce, Energy Engineer at EQUA Solutions AB, Sweden

The dynamic simulation of buildings has many and varied uses, and a number of concrete examples of how the simulation is applied in daily work in Sweden is demonstrated during the presentation. For example, how to precisely determine the required capacity for cooling the premises, design a VAV, choose the most efficient heating and cooling system, evaluate the indoor microclimate, etc. You will be shown that the simulation program can be used as a virtual laboratory, where you can easily experiment with various engineering solutions, providing the basis for choosing energy-efficient and economical systems. Dynamic simulation programs ESBO and IDA ICE will be presented at the presentation.
