Assignment Brief and Guidance:

Scenario

You are employed by a local Building Services Consultancy Company as a Junior Design Engineer for heating systems. Salford City Council is proposing the development of a two-storey office block which is to be located on a brownfield site at the rear of Media City. The office will be occupied by a private design consultancy for the construction industry in the North West. It is expected that the building design will utilise modern energy efficient systems and associated materials. You will be provided with drawings of the office buildings.

Details of Portfolio

Your Project Manager has requested that you provide a portfolio of information for the design of Heating Systems for the new building. The portfolio is to be presented to your Manager in the form of a report with accompanying calculations, sketches and summaries of the heating loads.

The report should firstly outline the issues and considerations for Heating in terms of the design stages and tasks that need to be undertaken to establish an optimum design solution.

The requirement for maintaining human comfort conditions as well as minimising running costs of the building is critical for the client. You will therefore need to focus on the following aspects of Pre-Design considerations to ensure reliable and cost-effective design solutions:

  • Building form and orientation to optimise the impact of solar gain
  • Building air tightness to reduce infiltration
  • Fabric insulation
  • Optimisation of glazing
  • Building thermal mass
  • Required functional performance
  • Occupancy
  • Usage details
  • Potential internal heating loads
  • Internal design conditions
  • Cost plan

During the design process, the following data is to be analysed and selected in accordance with current publications and guides and statutory requirements:

  • External design data
  • Internal design conditions for each area of the building

With reference to legislation and potential H&S considerations, the report is to include an evaluation of the design considerations and possible constraints for the two-storey building. Before any calculations are completed, an analysis of human comfort requirements is to be completed, with consideration of the variety of environmental conditions throughout the building. Identify pre-design information required for a non-domestic heating system LO2 Analyse heating loads for non-domestic buildings

Your calculation of the building heating loads should incorporate the following aspects of design:

  • Analysis of current requirements for minimum U-Values, including infiltration rates
  • Calculation of actual U-values for composite walls
  • Calculation of fabric and ventilation heat losses
  • Total heating loads and heating plant capacity with comments on options to minimise heating loads

In conclusion, you are to provide an analysis of the Health & Safety and environmental legislation relevant to the design, installation and operation of the heating system for the building.
