Thesis title: Investigating the Environmental Performance of Government Primary School in Egypt: with particular concern to thermal comfort

Supervisors: Prof. Simon Unwin and Mr. Tamer Gado

The research project mainly aimed to passively enhancing the environmental performance of primary classrooms with great concern to thermal comfort and energy efficiency. A pilot study and a main field study in eighteen case studies had been conducted to investigate the environmental performance of their classrooms. The investigation used the observation, the subjective assessment and the objective assessment techniques in order to conduct a Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE). Subjected assessment included conducting interviews and questionnaire with over three hundred school occupants (Children, teachers, head teachers, architects and engineers who responsible for designing and maintaining the school buildings). The objective assessment was conducted for all the parameters affected thermal comfort “weather data, internal air temperature, mean radiant temperature MRT, CO2, air movement and speed, and relative humidity". A parametric analysis for the proposed passive means was conducted. All the case studies were modelled using Autodesk ECOTECT as the main tool of the research. HTB2 as more detailed thermal simulation engine was used to simulate the internal air temperature of the spaces inside the case studies. Results of the research suggested that the proposed passive measures can enhance the thermal performance of the classrooms significantly.
