Subtask C: Case studies - Practical learnings from exemplary adaptive buildings, Case study buildings in Amman, Jordan

Project Details

Description

This subtask will conduct case studies in the participating countries, which will focus on the best practices of building performance. This study will provide suggestions to the building designers how to use appropriate design methods to achieve thermal comfort in an “adaptive” way, which will save much energy.

C1 instrumental indoor environment measurements with accompanying right-here-right-now occupant comfort questionnaires have been completed within 2 buildings. The research design was longitudinal.
