This report determines various means of achieving energy efficient HVAC systems for a built environment within an industrial establishment. A technical feasibility is carried out to check if enough waste heat recovery is available to feed plant side of a proposed HVAC system at the unit. It also looks into energy efficient means of providing comfortable environmental solution for the building. To investigate these criteria an industrial establishment is selected which is situated in Islamabad, Pakistan. The user requirements are analysed and solution is suggested to meet the requirements. To carry this out waste heat sources are determined and calculations are carried out to attempt sizing the plant side of the HVAC system with the available heat source. Further energy simulations are carried out to determine most energy efficient ventilation system for the external conditions of Islamabad Pakistan. Results from the energy simulations shed light on the performance of the various ventilation systems considered along with the building fabric of the structure of the industrial unit. In conclusion appropriate ventilation system is recommended with improvements to the building fabric to achieve efficient and least energy intensive building services for the industrial unit.
