IES Consulting were commissioned to investigate the new Erbil International Airport terminal's potential energy consumption.
The new Erbil International Airport terminal opened in March 2010 and IES Consulting were involved in the design process from 5 years earlier to investigate the terminal's potential energy consumption.
The assessment included a solar shading simulation to capture the impact of external shading louvres as well as dynamic energy and airflow simulations on the displacement ventilation system.
With the design's modelling there was a challenge to maintain occupant comfort in a highly glazed building within a very hot climate. IES Consulting were able to communicate detailed results using the IESVE throughout the terminal space which was a significant benefit towards the design team's decision making.
