Abstract

The indoor environmental quality and energy performance of two modern secondary schools in the UK which have fundamentally different environmental strategies were investigated during building performance evaluations. The performances of these buildings against the projected weather data for future were also analysed. The results point to significant risk of future overheating as a result of climate change in the naturally ventilated building with passive measures that go well beyond the existing guidelines for schools. The other school with mechanical ventilation shows resilience to future overheating. However, shortcomings in building procurement and operation have severely compromised its energy performance. It is suggested to carry out integrated life-cycle assessment of energy performance and overheating resilience in the context of climate change during design stages and identify the corresponding risks and mitigation measures required to ensure design intents will be met in practice.
