Project Title: Envelope design to improve ventilation performance of residential buildings in dense urban environments

Applicant: Prof. Mak Cheuk Ming of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Total Approved Grant: $441,240

Duration: 14/5/2015 to 13/5/2017

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

The principal objectives of this project proposal are to study, demonstrate and promote the appropriate envelope design to improve natural ventilation performance in residential buildings located in dense urban environments such as Hong Kong, so as to improve the indoor air quality and thermal comfort as well as to reduce energy use of air-conditioning, and ultimately to achieve a sustainable development and arouse the public awareness of sustainable building design.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
