In my M. Sc. Thesis we have analysed energy efficiency design measures of children day care centre Mlinček regarding daylight and energy consumption. At first we have performed an analysis of the existing kindergarten, which was built in 2015, next we performed a parametric study which served to check effectiveness of the design of the building. This study was carried out by particular simulations where we have changed the chosen actions and checked their influence in daylight and energy consumption. The basics of all the analyses was SketchUp platform. An addition for SketchUp SunHours has enabled us the analysis of insolation, like Sefaira did for illumination and energy analysis. Dimensions of the building and material characteristics have been summarised by the project documentation of the building, however the heating, cooling and ventilation parameters we have summarised in combination with the existing legislation. By the analysis of the illumination we have found out that the working surfaces of the playrooms were very much illuminated which can cause the glitter effect. The working surface of the conference hall is illuminated properly on June and September as the illumination is higher than 600 lx. The working surface of the offices are illuminated properly from March to September
By the particular simulations of the parametric study we have determined the influence of particular action to the use of energy for heating and cooling. While analysing the particular case it turned out that these two energy segments represent almost 35 % of the entire energy needed for the functioning of the building. We have determined that the building is designed pretty well regarding transparent surfaces of the building envelope. By installation of additional thermal insulation of the building envelope we could improve building's energy efficiency. A big influence on energy consumption has a change of inner temperature of the air in the heating season. Based on the results of the simulation analyses in the parametric study we have proposed the best option of the building, which are far more effective when comes to energy, compared to the initial case we studied.
