AbstractThis study is going to investigate the energy performance of a temporary building on campus and analyze it thoroughly to identify the trends on energy consumption. Then, it is going to select the best strategy that can improve its performance in this region. Next, a prototype design of a high energy performance building is going to be proposed to the university authorities to be constructed in the permanent campus in the second phase and, identify a list of the best strategies that are more appropriate for the climate of the city. Finely, a comparative study is going to be conducted by using energy analyses software (eQUEST) to find out the annual saving of the proposed design over the existing building.
