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, annual heating loads, and overheating (passive building operation scenario). The results show the significant degree to which design measures
could reduce the energy demand of (and overheating tendencies in) office buildings in Lebanon.
