This design objective pertains to building elements, heights and clearances implemented to address the specific needs of disabled people.
|Managing Enclosure Heat Flows
While the control of moisture is practically a universal requirement for buildings, the importance of the control of heat transfer tends to become more critical as the severity of climate, either hot or cold, increases. Managing heat flows is critical to occupant thermal comfort, energy efficiency, durability, and increasingly, thermal resilience during periods of extended power outages.
