I am working with Site B - Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve
Building Site Context
Searsville Lake on the East side of the site
Some houses and residential amenities on the West side of the site
Trees could provide natural shading of building's Eastern facade if placed west of the existing building
Quick drawing to show water collection and PV placement on roof:
Right now, this hexagonal shape with 4 floors gives me 26,828 sqft of floor area in total, which is close to the target for this exhibition center.
The EUI is as follows: it meets the ASHRAE standard but is way above the ARCH2030 target? (I chose the baseline as a museum)
It looks like the building orientation doesn't matter? Which is surprising to me, especially with the overhangs?
Zooming in it seems that the current building orientation is the most optimal, but it only makes a difference of a few cents /m²/year.
With daylighting/occupancy controls and the operating schedule to 12/6 or 12/5, the EUI gets better, but I think it's too early to study these impacts:
