About the Website
There are two types of support resources provided on this website:
1. Multiple Choice questions and answers for students
2. PowerPoint slides for lecturers
Multiple Choice questions and answers have been set for Chapters 2 to 11 and are designed to allow
students to test their understanding of the concepts and principles of climate, heat, light, and sound,
as well as their application in the design and construction of buildings.
PowerPoint slides have been prepared for lecturers to accompany Chapters 2 to 12 and are designed
to highlight the underlying fundamental principles pertaining to the environmental aspects of building
science, with some practical examples from the natural and built environment.
