BER & Daylight Analysis for Midleton CBS
This school in Co. Kerry was a part of the NDFA Schools Bundle 3 consisting of six schools. In collaboration with sister company, Lawler Consulting, who led the project in terms of M&E, and working closely with contractors on site, the building was constructed and populated in a matter of months.
Lawler Sustainability conducted a BER (Building Energy Rating) assessment on the premises along with daylight analysis to calculate overall lighting levels and so as to optimise natural lighting.
The large amount of windows in this school made ventilation and air-conditioning designs important. Due to the large amount of natural light entering the school, only small amounts of artificial lighting will be needed daily with the exception of winter months, which will keep energy bills low.
