With support of the Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA), the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) organised a one-day workshop on ‘Energy Conservation Building Code’ (ECBC).

Trainers touched various case studies to explain perfect architectural projects of different scale and typology. Registered architect with Council of Architecture and BEE Certified Master Trainers of the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) of India, Abu Talha Farooqi and Satinder Maan, informed the participants how heat transfer can be reduced by ‘Building Envelope’.

They revealed that the building reduced its heat load from 100 ft2/Tr to 450 ft2/Tr. The master trainers also showed case studies, where daylight in a building could be increased just by optimising the design.

Chief guest was Jalandhar MC Commissioner Karnesh Sharma. Joint Commissioner MC Harcharan Singh and Municipal Town Planner Parampal Singh, were also present.

The programme was attended by many practicing architects and engineers from the MC, Public Works Department, Improvement Trust and other stakeholders.
