Energy Consumption Improvement in Residential Buildings by Value Engineering

Master Research Project:

In this project, a practical method for application of Value Engineering (VE) was developed to reduce energy consumption in residential buildings. Moreover, this new methodology considers all different parameters and giving value to them simply but comprehensively. Then, it presents the most valuable offers for a reduction in energy consumption in residential buildings according to the computer software developed in this project. Consequently, based on the developed VE model a green building was built in Isfahan, Iran by the lowest rate of energy consumption as a practical example of using the completed model and software in building industry.
