Natural ventilation This document has been produced to help at the early design stage to evaluate whether a building (or part of it) is suitable for natural or mixed mode ventilation, and as a guide to help develop the solution. • Natural ventilation uses thermal buoyancy and wind as the driving forces. • It may provide an excellent solution for offices, schools, sports halls, shopping centres, exhibitions halls, renovations etc. • The air enters and leaves the building through automatically controlled openings in the facade and roof, these openings are typically windows. • The optimal opening distance for the windows is continually evaluated based on indoor temperature and CO 2 measurements and weather data (e.g. wind speed and direction, temperature and precipitation). • Natural ventilation provides significant benefits for the quality of the indoor climate, the comfort and productivity of the building users, the environment and the running costs for the building owner. 21-03-2018 2
