Your Instructor: Michael Pollock
Michael has 10 years’ experience in the construction industry with particular focus on complex energy modelling and compliance. An accredited LEED AP, his experience includes modelling numerous global projects for green rating systems. His project work includes the Royal London Hospital, St Petersburg Airport's New Terminal and the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
Thermal Comfort performance forms a key role in many building design guidelines and green rating systems including LEED, BREEAM and WELL.
This course will cover the analysis of thermal comfort within buildings and will provide a background on the factors that can influence occupancy comfort whilst demonstrating the metrics commonly used to evaluate comfort performance.
The course will demonstrate example analysis of thermal comfort in both Air Conditioned and Naturally Ventilated building designs.
Attendees should be comfortable using ApacheSim, MacroFlo and VistaPro. Knowledge of ApacheHVAC would be advantageous but is not essential.
