The focus of Semester 1 the 2013-2014 Springboard-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Analysis & Energy Retrofit programme was a study of the archetypal Department of Education 1940s school design by the renowned architect Boyd-Barrett. Each student was required to develop a deep energy retrofit design proposal to a 45 kWh/m2a Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard using the PHPP design tool
Over twenty project designs were produced by a class of architects and architectural technologists using a variety of digital modelling and environmental design software applications including PHPP. Modify with commentary as required.
These are selected posters of the ‘Boyd-Barrett School’ projects:
