  • Introduction to the concept of life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) of buildings and materials
  • Outlining how LCCA how this is key to determining the true cost of buildings
  • Comparative LCCA of façade systems for different building types
  • Using LCCA principles to develop façade design and construction strategies that reduce environmental impact and also reduce costs over a building’s life cycle
  • Lessons learnt from real world case studie

Michel Francis, Chief Architect and Design Director, DEC

Digital tools have been used for a while to assist in carrying out computer-based engineering analysis as opposed to traditional manual calculation, and that has helped in improving the ability to analyse any given engineering task in a faster and more accurate manner. Digital tools have empowered design teams in terms of their ability to model and manipulate highly complex geometric forms and shapes. However, digital tools, including BIM, have not yet reached their potentials from a holistic design standpoint, and have therefore been serving design teams in production and coordination, less so much in actual design problem solving and design evaluation. Therefore, the gap between the ability of design teams to produce challenging looking designs and their ability to validate those designs and evaluate their value is growing wider. This workshop will offer attendees a wider spectrum in terms of how digital tools can be used by project teams more effectively from a design standpoint from design to delivery using algorithmic thinking augmented by BIM.

Abdulmajid Karanouh, Director, Head of Innovation Design, Facades & Sustainability, Ramboll

  • Introduction to WELL design philosophy and concepts
  • Understanding the background to WELL design philosophy and how it has evolved
