DESCRIPTION: The class provided students with practical experience in how professionals analyze, design and construct energy efficiency retrofits in existing buildings, using a building on Loyola’s campus as a case study. Focusing on the principals of physics (heat transfer, solar radiation, air buoyancy, etc.) the class analyzed and proposed potential energy efficiency retrofits. Students presented their proposals to the Loyola Facilities Department, who were compelled to implement several.
