Abstract

HVAC load weighs a large portion of overall building energy consumption. A low storey building of 20,000m2 floor area adopted a task ambient conditioning system (TAC) in its design to reduce HVAC load while maintaining work environment. Applied in conjunction with other design techniques such as double-skin glass and structural thermal storage system, the TAC system achieved comfortable personal work-environment under reduced load.
