Welsh School of Architecture students from the MSc in Environmental Design of Buildings have presented their work at the NCEUB (Network for Comfort and Energy Use in Buildings) Masters’ conference.
The conference entitled “People and Buildings” took place on the 20th September at London Metropolitan University.
Selin Demirci, Ketki Mehta and Konstantinos Koletsos all presented results from their MSc Environmental Design of Buildings dissertation projects:
- Konstantinos Koletsos - Comparison of energy use and environmental impact of alternative exterior opaque walls of hotel construction in Greece
- Selin Demirci - Potential efficiency of BIM in POE In order to improve the occupant satisfaction in the buildings
- Ketki Mehta - Energy harvesting potential of facades at Derby City office block
Adell Awaj, Noah Akhimien and Mohammed Alghafis (who are currently PhD candidates at WSA) presented findings from their previous Master’s studies:
- Adell Awaj - the application of BIM to support design process of public spaces in Misurata, Libya
- Noah Akhimien - Adaptability in energy efficient office buildings
- Mohammed Alghafis - Sustainable vertical urbanisms in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - the future of tall buildings for urban design in the KSA
Dr Vicki Stevenson, course leader of the MSc Environmental Design of Buildings, was privileged to chair the third session of the conference. She said:
“The conference organisers Prof Fergus Nicol and Dr Luisa Brotas should be praised for organising the conference, it’s a rare opportunity for MSc students to display their research. The day contained a great range of research relevant to the built environment and the presenters showed an amazing enthusiasm for their work!”
The MSc in Environmental Design of Buildings enables students to develop the knowledge and ability needed to design healthy, comfortable environments in and around buildings that place a minimal strain on global resources.
