Research undertaken

2014

Leeds Sustainability Institute, Building Performance Research and Consultancy

The Centre for the Built Environment, Leeds Sustainability Institute, has undertaken research in Building Performance, advising government and informing Building Regulations for over 20 years. The group led by Professor Chris Gorse is multi-skilled monitoring, testing, modelling and simulating all types of buildings. Internationally, the group works with global companies, such as Knauf and Saint Gobain, advancing building material performance and test methods. The knowledge gained from its work on nearly zero carbon and energy plus projects, has also been used with Gentoo and Lancaster Cohousing. We have also worked on Enhanced Energy Efficient prototype buildings that were tested and rolled out on mass housing projects with Joseph Rountree Housing Trust, this work has placed the group in the unique and leading position in this research field. Undertaking energy efficiency research at scale and effectively monitor performance though smart meter technology forms a particular emphasis of current work and places the group at the heart of the building and smart technology interface. Recent work on the Northern Ireland ‘Simpler’ thermal upgrade project is in collaboration with technology providers Tensor Systems, VRM Technology and the Building Research Establishment is one example of the smart technology interface. All work is firmly embedded with industry and commerce, advancing material and building solutions, developing energy efficiency and improving the processes necessary to develop reliable and quality products.

Future Energy Management for Buildings TSB, Competition. Retail Energy Management System REMS. As part of a consortium led by Cybula Ltd (an SME associated with York University), the other partners are ASDA and the Centre for Low Carbon Futures; the final application documents are attached. The project aims to develop a novel software tool which can be used to track the real-time energy performance of large property portfolios and Leeds Met will be helping to contextualise data collection and analysis by using building pathology and dynamic modelling techniques.  Cybula provide the lead in big-data analysis and high performance pattern recognition systems: http://www.cybula.com/index.htm. Parker, Glew and Gorse

Dynamic Simulation Modelling and work with Leeds Metropolitan University  Estates, building on research previously undertaken with Birmingham City Airport The CeBE group are working with the Leeds Metropolitan University Estates department as part of ongoing work aimed at sharing expertise and reducing the University’s carbon footprint. The Calverley building retrofit project is being used to evaluate the difference between predicted and actual performance of a natural ventilation strategy that will significantly reduce carbon emissions compared with air conditioning alternatives. Sensors are being installed to establish actual performance of the building during the summer months. Dynamic simulation models are also being used to examine the potential impact of a timetable linked building management system on a range of other University facilities. The timetable linked system was developed by Colin Pattinson from the school of Computing, Creative Technologies and Engineering.  Early career research Dr James Parker, C Gorse and  M Warner

Leeds Metropolitan University, Saint-Gobain & Salford University: Full Scale Laboratory Test using the Energy House The Saint-Gobain Energy House project was a collaborative project between Leeds Metropolitan University, the University of Salford and Saint-Gobain. A research team from the Centre for the Built Environment measured the change in thermal performance resulting from a number of thermal upgrade measures to a circa 1900 end-terrace house situated in an environmentally controlled chamber. The test chamber provided an environment in which a steady-state was achieved, maintained and repeated across successive test phases; this enabled the change in thermal performance characteristics resulting from thermal upgrade measures to the test house, and individual elements, to be quantified and compared against baseline values with a high level of confidence. Quantitative measures of thermal performance were analysed in combination with qualitative data obtained from the test house, this allowed the research team to provide comment upon the potential reasons for any discrepancies between the calculated and measured thermal performance. It is thought that this is the first project of this nature to be undertaken globally. The findings from this project were feedback to Saint-Gobain to inform product development, marketing and strategy.  Gorse, Farmer. Miles-Shenton & Brooke-Peat

TSB – Scaling up retro fit of the nation’s homes Funding to Leeds Metropolitan University PI. Prof Chris Gorse, Dr Dave Johnston, and Dr James Parker. S-impler aims to develop a solution to the insulation of solid walls in the UK that is more cost effective than current solutions with minimal occupant disruption. S-impler will focus on a specific type of solid wall, ‘1950 Wimpey No-fines’ homes of which there are approx 5,000 in NI, however, the outcomes of S-impler will be relevant to many of the UK’s 6.9m solid walled homes. Using lean and collaborative improvement techniques, S-impler will integrate several new innovations into a single attractive commercial proposition which will be trialled iteratively on 5 NIHE homes: • An innovative surveying tool (Virtual Retrofit Manager). •A Building Information Modelling tool •A whole house monitoring system •A new solid wall retrofit Certification scheme to transfer knowledge and assure quality. We will achieve circa 60% reduction in monitored energy costs over current building performance, for the same capital cost as NI Building Regulations, with less disruption, at least 10% faster than conventional installations, without reductions in quality & safety. Project partners include the Building Research Establishment, Carillion Energy Services, Collaborative Improvement, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Tensor Systems and VRM Technology. http://www.s-impler.com/

DECC Core Cities Green Deal: 2013 – 2015 – Assessing energy savings of GD interventions: Coheating and In use Monitor Retrofitting of difficult to treat properties in Leeds – solid Wall and thin cavity (external, internal and cavity fill insulation) PI. Prof Chris Gorse, co-investigators Anne Stafford, David Glew and Fylan. Building performance testing of Eco and Green Deal upgrades to building fabric and services. Intensive building performance and forensic analysis on 6 different properties, intervention monitoring on a further 6 different properties characterising element performance, thermal and hygrothermal modelling on 6 different properties and specific element and junction analysis, in-use monitoring of 100 properties within the Yorkshire region, with before and after energy behaviour studies. Thermal imaging and building surveys to 100 properties. Assessment of all properties as-built performance against expected and designed performance.

Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Refurbishment (Green Deal / ECO) project, Sure Insulation, Leeds City Council and more than 10 housing associations across Yorkshire. Gorse, Glew, Stafford, Fylan and Smith.

Thermal Imaging, Building Surveying and Forensics: Building pathology inspections and recommendations for building surveys are undertaken on properties involved in thermal upgrade research projects. The findings from these help to further understanding of performance testing and results.

Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme is a 4 year collaborative endeavour, bringing together leading academics and business in the field of building performance to explore the topic of reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements. LMU’s role within this group is as subtask leader for the production of a decision making tool to aid researchers and businesses concerned with building performance testing. Business partners include: KNAUF Insulation and Isover Saint-Gobain.

2011 

The Stamford Brook Project (2011-2013) Bell, Sutton, Miles-Shenton and Wingfield, and Gorse was led by Leeds Metropolitan University’s Centre for the Built Environment (CeBE) alongside The National Trust, Redrow Homes and Bryant Homes (now part of the Taylor Wimpey Group). The final stage of the project was to look at inuse monitoring and the ability to extract data on fabric and whole building performance. An influential field trial conducted in the UK looking at energy efficiency of new build building fabrics. One result of this research was a change in the UK Building Regulations from 2010 to include cavity party walls as heat loss elements in all energy calculations on new build dwellings.
