The project of ours featured in this article is associated with the Con about needing air conditioning with a large open plan space. In this project there was no need to do so. The Building regulations in the UK set standards for thermal gain from large amounts of glazing and the management of temperature variation, and control of the environment is part of the consideration at techncal evaluation as well as consideration with the initial concept design. Thermal values, green house gasses, consideration for global environment as well a the residential environment, can all be death with by design and specification. No need for air conditioning in an open plan space. Unless, there are factors such as keeping having to keep windows and roof glazing shut tight at all times, insufficient insulation in the construction, noise level from external environment.

SAP works by assessing how much energy a dwelling will consume, when delivering a defined level of comfort and service provision. The assessment is based on standardised assumptions for occupancy and behaviour. This enables a like-for-like comparison of dwelling performance. Related factors, such as fuel costs and emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), can be determined from the assessment.

SAP quantifies a dwelling’s performance in terms of: energy use per unit floor area, a fuel-cost-based energy efficiency rating (the SAP Rating) and emissions of CO2 (the Environmental Impact Rating). These indicators of performance are based on estimates of annual energy consumption for the provision of space heating, domestic hot water, lighting and ventilation. Other SAP outputs include estimate of appliance energy use, the potential for overheating in summer and the resultant cooling load. for more photos of this project featured see https://www.hampshiredesign.co.uk/project-broom-cottage

@Hampshire Design Consultancy- this is surely very informative. Gradually green buildings with energy-efficient systems and passive cooling techniques are coming up in India but it is still a long way to go
