Certification Course on Efficient Building Envelope Design, ETTV and RETV

Event code: 71929


As building envelope separates the indoor space from the external environment, it is one of the key factors that impacts building energy consumption and occupants’ thermal comfort. Hence, prudent selection and application of façade systems are crucial to enhance the thermal building performance of building envelopes.


This course aims to equip industry practitioners with knowledge to design energy-efficient building envelope systems, as well as the compliance requirements of envelope thermal performance standards as prescribed in the Building Regulations; with reference to the ‘Code of Envelope Thermal Performance for Buildings’. At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Determine the key considerations in designing energy-efficient building envelope and daylighting, the use of natural daylighting.
• Evaluate and compute Envelope Thermal Transfer Value (ETTV) & Residential Envelope Transmittance Value (RETV) values against prevailing criteria; and
• Analyse results and determine strategies to improve the overall façade performance.
