Environmental Performance as a Design Driver:
How can environmental performance be brought into the initial interactive and fast moving architectural design stages in a quantified manner that still acknowledges the complexity of issues that need to be addressed? While tools are important and increasingly prevalent, like all tools it is the process that they fit into that is critical – part architectural, part engineering, all focused on understanding the problem. A portion of this process is related to how people simplify context in order to understand it and therefore respond to it. However, often one gets stuck in this simplification and attached to the corresponding proposed solution that is a merely a manifestation of that understanding but too simple to respond to the actual complexity of the context. The correct process and associated tools allows one to push through this trap to recognise a multitude of impacting parameters and can bring some interesting results do not fixate on a single issue. Paul Carew from PJC shares his 14 years of experience in this through a 67,000m2 office building case study.

Paul Carew has developed specific experience for a wide range of building typologies including offices, residential projects, laboratories, schools and hotels in a range of climates from tropical to cold. His focus is on passive and low energy design, thermal comfort strategies, computer simulated modeling, and costing and cost-recovery tools specific to green buildings. Paul has lectured at the University of Cape Town and continues to publish papers and attend local and international conferences.
