This is a Group Project website
developed for the degree of MSc Energy Systems and the Environment
at the University of Strathclyde.
Construction Villages have traditionally not
received any attention regarding energy efficiency and environmental
comfort. There are obvious inefficiencies regarding energy usage,
connectivity problems, set-up difficulties and an uncomfortable working
This project is concerned with improving the existing
energy demand and supply as well as enhancing the environmental quality
of construction site accommodation. This project seeks to analyse the
impact of improving energy efficiency through retrofitting energy
efficient equipments, investigation of the insulation characteristics
and introducing controllability to manage the demand for energy.
Besides, evaluation of renewable energy technologies and efficient
supply systems were conducted in order to allow an assessment of the
feasibility of self-sufficient supply in a construction villages.
This project was successfully completed with the support
from Laing O'Rourke as the industrial partner.
