Building Strategies Overview
Building orientation, form, structure and fenestration rarely change over the life of building which could easily be 50 years or more. Thus once these decisions are made their potential in providing energy efficiency and daylight stays for the life of the building. Within the design process, decisions made at the building level come in the earlier design phases and set the stage for design decisions made later. A compromised building orientation or form limits the daylighting potential when working at the room level. Similarly functional organization of the building that places rooms that need daylight in the core of the building makes it challenging to provide daylight to those spaces as the design moves forward. In this section we discuss building scale daylighting considerations and strategies that should be addressed in the early design stages.
