Exploration of the Energy Efficiency of the Greater London Authority Building (GLA Building/City Hall)

EE Osaji, J Hudson, P Chynoweth

Abstract


This research paper set out to explore the following research question: “what shape and form should a building be in order to achieve energy efficiency in the design and construction of the tall office building?”
This involved the exploratory case study of a spheroid building, the Greater London Authority (GLA) building. The Greater London Authority building was acclaimed as being energy efficient, with claims of 75 % reduction in its annual energy consumption compared to a high specification office building. This claim was explored to better understand the nature of the spheroid form in construction
