Su, B., & Liang, Y. F. (2020). Field Study of Summer Thermal Performance of the School Buildings in Avondale College (report for Jasmax, 30/11/2020).
Abstract
BACKGROUND AND INTRODUCTION: According to the New Zealand Ministry of Education, in New Zealand, there are 14637 school buildings built from pre-1940s to 1990s (see Figure 1). There could be a significant number of New Zealand school classrooms without sufficient insulation in their envelopes and with single glazing windows. Auckland has a temperate climate, with comfortable warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. High relative humidity during the Auckland winter is a major issue for building indoor health conditions. An Auckland school building usually does not need air condition for cooling during the summer (window ventilation and ceiling fan) only need space heating during the winter. School building thermal design should more focus on winter thermal performance and indoor health conditions.
