To solve the problem of optimizing the efficiency of existing commercial buildings, special standards have been developed - BREEAM In-Use and LEED O & M. This article will focus more on the standard BREEAM In-Use.

Fire protection for modern sport facilities p. 20
Irina Orlova
In Russia, which hosts more and more world-class sports events on its territory, new stadiums and sports palaces are being built, existing sports complexes are being modernized. All these facilities are equipped with innovative engineering equipment and technologies. However, given that sports events gather a large number of people, the issue of ensuring fire safety is especially acute. Special technologies and materials that meet the requirements of international building codes and sports organizations allow to solve the problem.

New airport terminal: practice of modern design p. 26
Darya Denisikhina, Mikhail Samoletov, Anatoly Khramov
New airport terminal is under construction in Simferopol, Russia. It will be great construction of 100 000 m2 and passenger flow rate 4 510 person per hour. Building Energy model was created to investigate different energy efficient solutions for this building. Implementing of modern methods in practice design allowed to find out the set of engineer solution measures that will be energy saving for the airport terminal

Sustainability of airports architecture and ways to reach that p. 34
Yuliya Kuganova
The article describes methods of using green technologies at airports.
The airport building is one of the most ecologically dangerous constructions. Among the problems that arise during its operation, we can include quality of air, water and soil, as well as a negative visual and acoustic effects on humans. Reducing the negative impact of these objects on the environment is a key goal of architects, designers and engineers, in the achievement of which the use of green technologies is a priority.

The effects of bedroom air quality on sleep and next-day performance p. 56
P. Strøm-Tejsen, D. Zukowska, P. Wargocki, D. P. Wyon
The effects of bedroom air quality on sleep and next-day performance were examined in two field-intervention experiments in single-occupancy student dormitory rooms. The occupants, half of them women, could adjust an electric heater to maintain thermal comfort but they experienced two bedroom ventilation conditions, each maintained for 1 week, in balanced order. In the initial pilot experiment (N = 14), bedroom ventilation was changed by opening a window (the resulting average CO2 level was 2585 or 660 ppm). In the second experiment (N = 16), an inaudible fan in the air intake vent was either disabled or operated whenever CO2 levels exceeded 900 ppm (the resulting average CO2 level was 2395 or 835 ppm). Bedroom air temperatures varied over a wide range but did not differ between ventilation conditions. Sleep was assessed from movement data recorded on wristwatch-type actigraphs and subjects reported their perceptions and their well-being each morning using online questionnaires. Two tests of next-day mental performance were applied. Objectively measured sleep quality and the perceived freshness of bedroom air improved significantly when the CO2 level was lower, as did next-day reported sleepiness and ability to concentrate and the subjects’ performance of a test of logical thinking.
