The role and influence of building services engineers are undergoing rapid change and are pivotal to achieving low-carbon buildings. However, textbooks in the field have tended to remain fairly traditional with a detailed focus on the technicalities of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, often with little wider context. This book addresses that need by embracing a contemporary understanding of the urgent challenge to address climate change, together with practical approaches to energy efficiency and carbon mitigation for mechanical and electrical systems, in a concise manner.


The essential conceptual design issues for planning the principal building services systems that influence energy efficiency are examined in detail. These are HVAC and electrical systems. In addition, the following issues are addressed:




background issues on climate change, whole-life performance and design collaboration
generic strategies for energy efficient, low-carbon design
health and wellbeing and post occupancy evaluation
building ventilation
air conditioning and HVAC system selection
thermal energy generation and distribution systems
low-energy approaches for thermal control
electrical systems, data collection, controls and monitoring
building thermal load assessment
building electric power load assessment
space planning and design integration with other disciplines.


In order to deliver buildings that help mitigate climate change impacts, a new perspective is required for building services engineers, from the initial conceptual design and throughout the design collaboration with other disciplines. This book provides a contemporary introduction and guide to this new approach, for students and practitioners alike.

Paul Tymkow was at Hoare Lea for 30 years where he was Director of Learning and Knowledge from 2007 to 2018. He has led design groups, project teams and projects in a wide range of sectors, in building services and related areas, for Hoare Lea and other organisations. He was a visiting academic at Brunel University London from 2005 to 2019, where he lectured on the postgraduate programme, and was a Royal Academy of Engineering visiting professor from 2016 to 2019. Savvas Tassou is Professor of Energy Engineering and Director of the Institute of Energy Futures at Brunel University London. He has over 30 years' academic and research experience in the areas of building services engineering, energy conservation technologies for the built environment and process industries, the design optimisation of these technologies and their optimum integration and control to minimise energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Maria Kolokotroni is Professor of Energy in the Built Environment in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Institute for Energy Futures, Brunel University London. She teaches ventilation, low-energy technologies and building performance at postgraduate level and carries out research on UK- and European-funded research projects in these fields. She works very closely with industry to transfer research results to application and has contributed to International Energy Agency research projects. Hussam Jouhara is a Professor of Thermal Engineering at Brunel University London. He is an established academic author and an internationally recognised expert in heat exchangers, fluid dynamics and two-phase heat transfer processes. Over a 16-year career, he has developed innovative solutions to heat exchange/heat-pipe problems, resulting in many filed patents, and has attracted substantial research funding from various UK/EU-based research councils and industrial partners.

Energy / People / Buildings: Making sustainable architecture work

9781859465875
Kimpian, J; H. Hartman; S.Pelsmakers
Energy performance feedback is an essential tool in addressing the current climate crisis. However, this is not simply another theoretical text about energy performance in buildings. This book is for anyone who wants to better understand how energy is used in buildings, and how to drive down operational energy use – whether you’re an architect, student, client, building services engineer, contractor, building operator or other stakeholder.
