English abstract:
This paper explores the implications of alternative design options for the thermal performance
of office buildings in Beirut and Tripoli, Lebanon. Five typical office buildings were selected
for the investigation. Multiple design alternatives were considered involving various lighting,
glazing and shading types, shading schedules, thermal insulation options, and ventilation
scenarios. A numeric thermal simulation application was used to model the performance of
these alternatives parametrically. Simulation results were expressed in terms of annual
sensible and latent cooling loads and annual heating loads. The results show the significant
degree to which design measures could reduce the energy demand of office buildings in
