Abstract

The purpose of this report is to give examples of methods and tools that are used in the design of integrated building. The report does not aspire to give a complete overview of all possible design methods and tool. The report will serve as a common basis for the research and development work that is going to be carried out within the IEA Annex 44 project.

This report contains a description of 11 different methods and tools that the members of the IEA Annex 44 have contributed. In addition, the report contains a short overview of computer simulation tools that may be used to predict the performance of integrated building concepts and responsive building elements. At last, the report gives a description of uncertainty modelling in building performance assessment. The descriptions of the design methods and tools include an explanation of how the methods may be applied, any experiences gained by using the methods, barriers for further use, and research needs.
