Developing a framework of interventions for retrofitting high-rise office buildings in warm climates

By RMKU Rajapaksha, R Hyde, I Rajapaksha and D Leifer


There is a complex interplay of issues associated with retrofitting high-rise office buildings in warm climates. This paper explores non-technological and technological interventions for retrofitting and the potential environmental benefits associated with them. An approach is developed in the context of bioclimatic renovation design for existing high-rise office buildings in warm climates in Australia that offers opportunities for promoting energy-efficient practices through the exploitation of occupant behaviour, building design and powered systems in the commercial building sector
