Efficient services/ Ventilation approaches for offices. For the commercial sector, the efficiency of the services will play a key role in achieving the nZEB standard. By minimising the energy use from first principles we reduce the final requirement for renewables. How does the concept design for solar shading, lighting, ventilation and cooling play a part?
