About this Unit
The building envelope and its inter-relationship with building services are critical to the successful functioning of our modern built environment. In this unit students will learn how to minimise operational energy requirements by making good choices in terms of materials and systems which focus on end-user needs. Measurement of building performance and continuous improvement is addressed alongside compliance with building codes and relevant Australian standards.
