GSAS Design & Build workshop

The project aims to create an understanding of emission pathways within Doha and develops approaches for their reduction in the built environment. The main approach is to build a 3D modeling tool. New and existing building database containing all buildings specific information, planned and projected growths within the various city districts, then integrate this database within a geospatial information system [GIS] that will allow us to answer a range of ‘what-if’-type questions about various intervention strategies, emissions savings, and acceptability of pre-defined course of actions in the city sector under consideration.

A set of criteria will allow specific analysis to be undertaken linked to the spatial dimensions of the sector under study, so that as a sector expands and absorbs land over time, the manner of this expansion may be modeled taking into account past urbanization and spatial constraints of the sector. The spatial carbon intensity may be adjusted over a certain period or due to increasing proportion of lower carbon energy in the generation mix and relate this to the sector and city overall consumption.
