Avoiding overheating in buildings

CIBSE, avoiding overheating in buildings

Guidance on avoiding overheating in buildings is provided by CIBSE Guide ‘TM52: The limits of thermal comfort: avoiding overheating in European buildings’. It is available on CIBSE’s online knowledge portal and will be followed soon by ‘TM49: Probabilistic design summer years for London’. Both guides offer information to help avoid uncomfortable conditions for occupants.

Fergus Nicol, lead author of TM52, comments, ‘Overheating has become a major problem in building design. To assess this further, CIBSE responded by forming the overheating task force.’

This task force explored what is needed from building designers, service systems, ventilation and facilities managers to maintain comfortable living and working conditions, especially during the summer months.’
