Italian benchmark building models: the office building

Enrico Fabrizio, Daniele Guglielmino, Valentina Monetti

Abstract: This article describes the development of Italian reference building models, as valuable decisional tools to to be used from the very start of the design process. As a first step, a contextualization of the benchmark building model for the large office building created by the US DOE (Department of Energy) was made. A method suitable for different building typology was identified. This work was limited to the large office case study across seven location in the North of Italy. Afterwards a benchmark model for the large office building, based on various research over Italian Office building stock was defined.
