Northern Ireland Reports / Operational Evaluation of Graham Head Office Building

The GRAHAM Head Office is a three storey sustainable low energy building 12 miles west of Belfast. The client was involved throughout the entire process of the design and was also the main contractor for the project. The building has an A rated EPC rating and scored a design stage BREEAM Excellent rating. The accommodation consists mainly of open plan office space with a mix of cellular offices and meeting rooms.
The building maintains stable indoor temperatures throughout the working day and overnight and at weekends/holidays. This stability indicates that the high levels of thermal mass in the concrete pillars and ceilings is having a positive effect on maintaining comfortable temperatures.
One of the key challenges in the BPE project has been collecting and analysing energy consumption data. This is investigated in the report.
