Colloquium: Energy Aspects of Buildings. Fabric of the Building

This paper identifies the major part that building plays in national energy conservation activities. It identifies the major ways in which energy is consumed and goes on to describe the part played by the form, fabric and fenestration of buildings in determining thermal comfort and economy. The influences of siting, size, shape, thermal response, insulation, ventilation, and fenestration, are described and examples given of the degree of significance of each. Professor Peter Burberry
