London Wall Place

London Wall Place
This is a 47,000m² high-rise office development that combines team work.
My role was to create for Hurleypalmerflatt some of the CFD models:

  • to test the mixed mode ventilation strategy in a typical office unit
  • to test the performance of the façade openings
  • to test the atrium stack effect
  • to set up the model for site’s macro-climate analysis

Also participated in Hurleypalmerflatt energy team for the energy strategy for London planning with parametric dynamic thermal modelling employing LZC technologies and post processed the dynamic results by customizing excel dynamic spreadsheets to assess technologies not supported by the software.

Site Micro Climate Analysis

Site airflow patterns and pressure at building facade are influenced by high rise buildings proximity.

and Vectors for Air Speed

Air flow Strategy suggests:

  • Breathable facade employing air infiltration through slots
  • Ventilation shafts employing chimney stack effect

CFD indicates vectors for air speed and path
