AbstractThis state-of-the art paper reviews the area of environmental control of buildings, outlines some research findings, and analyzes different aspects of the design process with a view to creating a comprehensive stage for the introduction of new ideas. This paper underlines shortcomings in the current design process and highlights areas where the current design and evaluation processes must be improved to enhance innovation in the construction industry. Part II of this work (to be published in JTIBE) proposes improvements based on a holistic approach to the environmental control of buildings.
