Contract Description:

Energy House 2 (EH2) is a large-scale building physics test laboratory to be built at the University of Salford Manchester. The project Is part funded by the ERDF. The construction will begin in summer 2020 with the construction period set to last 12 months. The project builds on the successful Energy House project :( ). A video of the project can be found here

EH2 will be a unique facility and one of most advanced building test facilities on the planet. It has the following features: • 2 large chambers capable of having 2 family homes built in each one (4 homes in total) • Temperature controlled to within 0.5 °C from -20°C to +40 °C • Wind, rain, solar radiation and snow can be generated • These conditions provide testing facilities for housing covering 95% of the global population.
The Energy House 2 Project has a requirement to simulate wind in a large environment to accomplish the following: • To move the boundary air layer on the façade of homes built with within the environmental chamber, with the desired effect to affect the heat flow through the wall of the homes • To provide wind driven rain, the fans will work to push the rain directly onto the wall. Rain is provided by a separate system. • To provide a difference in pressure across the homes, this will adjust the rate at which air infiltration occurs in the homes.
