An online collaborative tool for sustainable design. (2005)
Conference Proceeding
BENNADJI, A., AHRIZ, H. and BELAKEHAL, A. 2005. An online collaborative tool for sustainable design. In Imbabi, M.S. and Mitchell, C.P. (eds.) Renewable energy, technology, innovation and the environment: proceedings of the 2005 Regional meeting of the World Renewable Energy Congress (WREC 2005): innovation in Europe, 22-27 May 2005, Aberdeen, UK. Amsterdam: Elsevier.

One of the most important aspects a design team needs to consider fairly early on is that of energy saving, cost, thermal comfort and the effect on the environment in terms of CO2 emissions. This paper presents an online collaborative tool that allow... Read More about An online collaborative tool for sustainable design..

Engineering assessment made easy: the 'Energysave' approach. (2005)
Book Chapter
BOUCHLAGHEM, N.M., HOLMES, M., LOVEDAY, D. and BENNADJI, A. 2005. Engineering assessment made easy: the 'Energysave' approach. In Lee, A., Wu, S., Marshall­Ponting, A.J., Aouad, G., Cooper, R., Tah, J.H.M., Abbott, C. and Barrett, P.S. (eds.) nD modelling roadmap: a vision for nD-enabled construction. Salford: University of Salford, School of the Built Environment, pages 62-69.

Whilst naturally ventilated buildings are currently considered to be the ideal solution to low energy design there remain a large proportion of buildings for which air conditioning offers the only practical solution. This project is intended to provi... Read More about Engineering assessment made easy: the 'Energysave' approach..

Office occupants' appreciation of window size under a clear sunny sky: towards an efficient building regulation. (2005)
Conference Proceeding
