Building orientation considerations for a high-performance building include all of the following except:
  1. Minimize east-west glazing
  2. Orient on east-west axis
  3. Minimize southern glazing
  4. Maximize passive solar heat gain
Answer - C - To minimize southern glazing is not one of the building orientation considerations for a high-performance building; instead, one should consider maximizing southern glazing. Doing so takes advantage of optimum day light, resulting in energy use reduction. Minimizing east-west glazing with east-west axis orientation and maximizing passive solar heat gain are all strategies for considerations in building orientation.
