Title of CPD course

Energy Usage in Buildings


Frans Dekker

Course information (Content/Overview)

This workshop will assist the architectural professional to maintain, develop or increase knowledge, problem-solving, technical skills or professional performance standards regarding the application of the Deemed-to-Satisfy Design Requirements of the National Building Regulations regarding Energy Usage in Buildings as well as the requirements for the Building Envelope if the Deemed-to-Satisfy NBR requirements cannot be met.

The aim of the course is to acquaint participants with tools for solving problems in building design regarding the requirements for Energy Usage and Energy Efficiency focusing on the building envelope. Participants will be presented with the minimum requirements as well as practical examples to satisfy the NBR as per:

● SANS10400-XA: Energy Usage in Buildings together with the best practice requirements for Energy Efficiency in Buildings as per:

● SANS204: Energy Efficiency in Buildings


Participants will also be acquainted with the Hot Water Requirements prescribed by the National Building Regulations.


NEW : Delegates will be informed about the proposed predefined solutions and performance requirements of the new SANS10400XA. This standard, as well as SANS204, are currently being rewritten and will incorporate the new building energy map of South Africa under development by the CSIR for the SABS Committee.
