2013-10-09 12:52:35 - Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS), a national education institution in association with Environmental Design Solutions (EDS) has announced a training programme on Passive Solar Design, Daylighting and Simulations for Green Buildings.
Delhi, October 9, 2013: The programme will be held at India Habitat Centre, Delhi from October 18th -19th.
The objective of this two-day training program is to equip participants with the practical know-how to undertake shading and daylighting simulations. The unique teaching methodology of this course introduces the concepts in a step-by-step manner from manual exercises to using physical study models to finally using computer simulations.
Day lighting is an essential aspect of good building design and is a key feature in green buildings. Key goals in daylighting design are to provide sufficient illuminance, minimise the perception of glare, and provide for overall visual comfort. This programme is designed for professionals from any discipline interested in green building design, daylighting techniques
and LEED/GRIHA certification.
The course highlights overview of solar geometry its impact on daylight, significance of sun path diagrams as a passive solar design tool and will include exercises on sun path diagrams.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to optimize building orientation and shading devices, undertake daylight simulations for a basic geometry, derive meaningful inferences to improve daylighting and also identify location of solar collectors.
The faculty includes Gurneet, Director, EDS Pvt. Ltd. who has over 8 years of working experience in projects dealing with sustainable development, building energy efficiency and Green Buildings; Deepa, Senior Green Building Analyst at EDS whose work includes research and analysis of active and passive design concepts, daylight and building energy simulations.
Date October 18th -19th
Time 9:00 am – 5:30 pm
Location India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi
