Abstract: This paper assesses the role of design and operational parameters in a night ventilated library building that has been designed for a maritime type climate. The design rationale behind the building is elaborated and decisions associated with the various design parameters discussed. A model of the building is created using the ESPr simulation program which after experimental validation is used to carry out parametric and sensitivity studies on the building. The role of different building design and operational parameters are examined including building mass, external gains, internal gains, ventilation duration, ventilation rates, as well as ventilation operational strategies.
