Renovation and Energy Evaluation : Viipurinpuisto Residential Project

By Jue Wang


This thesis topic is chosen according to the demand of the author’s employer company which holds a renovation project related to this field of work. It is done with the help of a university lecturer as supervisor - Olli Ilveskoski. The main objectives of this thesis is to examine whether ArchiCAD software energy evaluation system is functional or practical and to what extent can this system provide help in a real renovation/construction project. In addition, suggestions are made for possible future improvements of the system. Theoretical parts of this thesis are mainly related to the building’s thermal problems. Most of the formulas are based on the EU's recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the National Building Code of Finland. Research methods include using ArchiCAD software to create a BIM model of the object building and utilize the energy evaluation add-on to simulate and calculate the energy consumption of the building as well as its maintenance. Comparison is made between ArchiCAD data and real energy data from inhabitants. The conclusion of this thesis indicates that ArchiCAD energy evaluation add-on is very helpful and it makes it easy to calculate the data which can be essential for improving the building’s energy-efficiency, but its lack of ability to take more complicated situations into consideration may lead to inaccuracy of the results and final report to some extent
