After the Second World War mechanical ventilation systems began to boom in the UK. However recent years have shown that sustainable designs have become more popular among architects. This is clearly apparent in modern schools and office buildings.
Natural building ventilation has been proven to reduce the effects of Sick Building Syndrome (Please See the National Health Service official web page on Sick Building Syndrome http://www.nhs.uk/
Hybrid systems that use a combination of mechanical fan assistance and natural background ventilation are more energy efficient than HVAC systems alone. They also offer reduced construction costs and reduced maintenance costs. This can lead to a considerable cost saving over the life of the building.
When taking into the consideration the cost saving benefits, health rewards and reduced impact on the environment, natural building ventilation should be the natural choice.
