Abstract: Energy Efficiency is an increasingly important aspect of building management and operation. The Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) is often used as a measure to compare the level of energy efficiency between buildings. However, comparisons between buildings may be unfair due to the current practice of not taking into account the car park component. As car park area represents 10% to 35% of the gross floor area, it contributes to a major component in the total area of a building. This has a tremendous impact of the apparent level of energy efficiency of a building. To overcome this problem, a study is first carried out critically analyzing the building codes and by-laws governing the car park design followed by site observations of effective and poor design practices of car park facilities in Singapore. Ten office buildings are then selected for in-depth study where parameters affecting car park design efficiency and energy usage are examined. After establishing the correlations of the car park with the various parameters, deviations resulting from the use of different indices are studied. From these deviations of indices, correction factors are established to allow adjustments to be made to data for a better comparison of energy efficiency between buildings.
