FEATURED PRESENTATION

Improving the Performance and Indoor Environmental Quality of Post-War Multi-Unit Residential Buildings


In Canada, buildings account for 17% of total domestic GHG emissions, and almost 50% of GHG emissions from urban regions. In southern Ontario, Canada, there are approximately 1,200 post-war multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) that were constructed between 1960 and 1970, and there is a lack of knowledge on how these buildings operate. Our research has shown that these buildings often suffer from poor indoor air quality, overheating, and poor energy performance.

This presentation will focus three different research projects that are being carried out at the Building Energy and Indoor Environment lab at the University of Toronto:

1) Assessing the ventilation performance and perceptions of indoor environmental quality in two post-war MURBs.

2) Updates on the development of alternative strategies for characterizing air leakage in MURB suites.

3) A new retrofit method for the heating system in post-war MURBs.

The information presented here will be useful to the Toronto ASHRAE community as we work to improve the sustainability and comfort of our existing building stock.


LECTURER

Dr. Jamie Fine, PhD. EIT

Post Doctoral Fellow

University of Toronto


Jamie Fine received his PhD from the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Ryerson University in August 2018. His thesis focused on the development and optimization of a heating system that utilized hybrid solar collectors coupled with heat pumps. He focused heavily on simulation model development, along with experimental work. After completing his PhD, he joined the BEIE lab in September 2018.

Jamie’s current research focuses on improving the performance of buildings. His main project investigates the integration of crowd-sourced occupant data with post-war apartment buildings to improve occupant comfort and reduce energy consumption.
