Pas­si­ve Hou­se and re­si­li­en­ce in the face of a war­ming cli­ma­te

Buil­dings need to be de­si­gned to pro­vi­de com­fort in a chan­ging cli­ma­te. This stu­dy de­s­cri­bes the stan­dards to as­sess, and stra­te­gies to ach­ie­ve, com­fort in a 2050 cli­ma­te whi­le ach­ie­ving Pas­si­ve Hou­se tar­gets for a com­plex mi­xed-use stu­dent hou­sing and di­ning pro­ject in Vic­to­ria BC Ca­na­da.

9:20 am

Re­si­li­en­ce of Pas­si­ve Hou­ses to bus­h­fi­re smo­ke in­fil­tra­ti­on

The ex­treme air­tight­ness of Pass­ive Houses re­duces the rate at which bush­fire smoke in­filt­rates homes.  The main in­filt­ra­tion path­way in Pass­ive Houses is via the MVHR sys­tem.  Smoke in­filt­ra­tion can be sub­stan­tially re­duced by in­cor­por­at­ing high­er grade fil­tra­tion in­to the MVHR to achieve healthy in­door air qual­ity dur­ing haz­ard­ous smoke events.

9:35 am

The im­pact of a war­ming cli­ma­te on buil­dings

War­ming cli­ma­te con­di­ti­ons are causing a ge­ne­ral trend of de­cre­a­sed hea­ting and in­cre­a­sed coo­ling needs for buil­dings. The im­pli­ca­ti­ons that this has on ge­ne­ral de­sign prio­ri­ties are dis­cus­sed ba­sed on ex­am­ple buil­dings in hea­ting and well as in coo­ling do­mi­na­ted lo­ca­ti­ons.

Hea­ting and coo­ling with split units (com­pres­si­on coo­ling) in ac­cor­dance with ther­mal com­fort goals (Present­a­tion in Ger­man)

Re­com­men­ded designs for the heat­ing and cool­ing of res­id­en­tial build­ings with air-con­di­tion­ing units are presen­ted us­ing dy­nam­ic sim­u­la­tions which ful­fil thermal com­fort re­quire­ments.
