A Study of Impact of Building Envelope on Urban Outdoor Thermal Environment (Aug 14 - Jul 15)
• Researchers: NG Yan Yung, Min-jung MAING, Alan LAI
• Funding Amount: HK$990,000
• Funding source: Construction Industry Council

This research investigates the effects of both thermo-physical and geometrical properties of building envelope configurations on forming micro-climates, under varying ambient temperatures. Bio-climatically sensitive urban planning strategies that respond to urban outdoor thermal comfort will be developed and tested from both field data and numerical modelling.
