This study focused on of energy consumption and indoor air quality as two key
components of a building's sustainability. These components were analyzed by
utilizing a case study of building to develop strategies which adapt to the rigors
of the local climate and the human needs for comfort and shelter as well as
psychrometrics, the physics of heat transfer, and heat loss calculations.
Building form, orientation, and indoor spaces are also applied as they relate to
sun, wind, and site, as well as bioclimatic design, passive solar design, natural
cooling, and daylighting.
