Thermal performance in Customized living Container accommodation & Office facilities
"Remotely operated living accommodation and office facilities containers are typically constructed from high-grade steel and equipped with insulation and HVAC systems to provide a comfortable living and office environment. NAAC customizes accommodation and office facility containers to meet the specific design requirements of each project, including ensuite facilities and options for single or multiple occupancy.
Thermal comfort is an important factor in designing customized living containers and office accommodation. The customized accommodation and office facility containers are designed with thermal barriers such as thermal insulation or reflective paint on the roofs, floors, and walls to help stabilize indoor temperatures according to outdoor weather conditions. The structural design of customized containers, usually made of steel, can impact changes in indoor air temperature due to steel's ability to conduct heat.
In containerized construction, heat propagation and its attributes contribute to the thermal performance. To mitigate this, artificial ventilation such as air conditioning has been considered the most ideal solution to address thermal comfort issues, but it consumes a significant amount of energy. Adding insulation materials to steel walls is one strategy to create indoor thermal comfort. Walls and roofs are thermal components that consider factors such as conductivity, R-values, U-values, and other measures. Achieving optimal performance in customized accommodation and office facility container designs can be done through basic principles like superinsulation, eliminating thermal bridges, and utilizing mixed-mode ventilation systems.
In customized containers, the external surface is left exposed, while the walls are effectively built with a wood frame and an insulation layer inside the container. This includes a vapor barrier on the warm side of the insulation, followed by internal decorations. The aim is to determine the contribution of design parameters in customized containers for both living and office facilities to achieve indoor thermal comfort and improve energy efficiency.
Thermal performance can be increased by optimizing facility shading and window settings, as well as utilizing higher R-values (indicating better thermal resistance) and lower U-values (indicating better insulating performance). By achieving thermal comfort, energy consumption can be reduced.
