DEL MAR ACADEMY NEW FACILITIES

Greetings In the present document you will find the preliminary drawings and information prepared by GRUPO SULAYOM and NOVA Development Group related to the new facilities of Del Mar Academy located in Nosara, Nicoya, Costa Rica.


Site & Climate Analysis Some General Results: The following data was taken with special equipment used to measure wind velocity and direction, temperature of the place in study and objects, and humidity. The measurments where taken on a cloudy day but with some obsarvations done during the sunny days the info has been well complemented. - North: located on the floor plan. Help the equipment to established the bejavior of the sun, wind and rain.


Site & Climate Analysis Wind velocity: 0.6 - 1 m/s Extreamly low. It’s important to increase wind velocity by using some design strategies in terms of vegetation and the building volumes. Wind direction: mostly from east to west, but it gets influenced by the shapes of the land and trees. Reading where hard to take because the wind flow wasn’t strong enough. Temperature that day: 29C-31C Humidity: 79% High: If there’s not enough wind or air flow at the different space, this could affect the areas and make them really uncomfortable. Some recomendations: - Orientation of the structure: N to S - Open spacing for breeze penetration - Rooms sigle banked, permanent provision for air movement - Large windows or doors openings. 40 to 80 % - Light walls, short time - lag - Light insulatted roofs - Protection for heavy rain - Exclude direct sunlight from openings - Floors with low thermal capacity - Roofs with reflective surface

Temperatures on objects the day of the study where (cloudy day): - concrete: 30C - white small stones: 33C (at the sun) - grass: 29C shadow, 33C sun. - Classroom walls: 30C shadow, 34C sun.
