[en] This paper is a part of an ongoing research that aims to describe the influence of building constructions on energy consumption through a survey that is conducted in Cairo and its surrounding residential neighbourhoods. An inventory of the selected neighbourhoods envelope constructions and their characteristics is described in accordance with the new Egyptian energy standard for residential buildings.
After thorough screening and classification, the constructions are digitalized and uploaded in an online open source database where constructions properties are listed, made available in .idf and .ddb formats (EnergyPlus and DesignBuilder respectively) and illustrated graphically. This Database of Egyptian Building Envelopes (DEBE) facilitates the input modelling of constructions and enables users to explore standard complying alternative constructions.
