Abstract

The energy used in non-domestic buildings accounts for 18 % of the energy use in the UK. Modernist
office buildings, typically defined as those built between 1945 and 1985, represent a promising sector
for refurbishment and energy demand reduction. This paper aims to present an advanced
methodology for refurbishing modernist office buildings. The methodology involves creating an
archetypal building model which is assessed by using sensitivity analysis to evaluate
representativeness and develop insight into the most effective refurbishment design parameters. For
this, a parametric study, using dynamic thermal simulation modelling, was undertaken for a
representative modernist office building model, located in London, UK. Combinations of heating and
passive cooling refurbishment measures were applied to the representative model. The results
showed the suggested methodology provides an improved understanding of refurbishment solutions
and draws out useful pathways to enhance existing approaches to refurbishment.
