The Q Park in the Four Courts area of Dublin is 354.81m2. 43% of the building’s energy consumption is used on lighting, 33% on equipment and 23% on heating, with the remainder split between cooling, water and auxiliary. Parts of the building were at risk of overheating. To combat this, Lawler Sustainability recommended installing reflective coating or shading devices to windows.
To combat the large lighting bill we recommended the installation of a number of renewable technologies. These included solar water heating, PV and air and ground source heat pumps.
