Technical Memoranda TM59: Design methodology for the assessment of overheating risk in homes (2017) By: CIBSE
Assessing overheating risk in homes is a complex issue and not adequately assessed by building regulations.
This Technical Memorandum (TM) aims to help building services engineers and other professionals working on the planning, design and construction of homes: to understand and demonstrate good practice; to understand the relevant guidance, tools and other resources available; and to contribute to delivering good practice as part of a wider design team.
If heat networks are to form a significant part of our future low carbon energy infrastructure in the UK, and meet client and customer expectations, then they need to be designed, built and operated to a high quality. This Code has been produced to assist in achieving that aim by raising standards right across the supply chain.
