Just like building physics, performance based building design was hardly an issue before the energy crises of the 1970s


After an overview of materials for thermal insulation, water proofing, air tightening and vapour tightening and a discussion on joints, building construction is analysed, starting with the excavations

As the first of two volumes, this book applies the performance rationale, advanced in applied building physics, to the design and construction of buildings

Most chapters build on a same scheme overview, overall performance evaluation, design and construction

The basis for a system of performance arrays are the functional demands, the needs for accessibility, safety, well-being, durability, energy efficiency and sustainability and the requirements imposed by the usage of a building

The book is absolutely recommended to undergraduates and graduates in architectural and building engineering, though also building engineers, who want to refresh their knowledge, may benefit

The level of discussion assumes the reader has a sound knowledge of building physics, along with a background in structural engineering, building materials and building construction

The term performance encompasses all building-related physical properties and qualities that are predictable during the design stage and controllable during and after construction

The term predictable demands calculation tools and physical models that allow evaluating a design, whereas controllable presumes the existence of measuring methods available on site

Then foundations, below and on grade constructions, typical load bearing systems and floors pass the review to end with massive outer walls insulated at the inside and the outside and cavity walls

Where and when needed, input and literature from over the world was used, reason why each chapter ends listing references and literature.

With the need to upgrade energy efficiency, the interest in overall building performance grew
