Creating of indoor environment in the work area in industrial buildings should be based on cooperation between heating and ventilation. However, practice shows that this is not truth in many cases. Both professions are many times designed separately. Result is their noncooperation leading to a mutual obstruction in terms of disposal location or functional operation of the systems. Creating a heating and ventilation system, which would both be designed in accordance with applicable legislation and it would create an optimal indoor environment for people in working area, to find solution in combination of radiant heating with ventilation air recovery unit.

it is necessary to adopt suitable shading device design [ 11 ]. The building façade design also plays an important role in providing effective ventilation configuration and strategies, in order to provide efficient IndoorAirQuality (IQA), which
A study was undertaken to assess the air quality of Lahore by the elemental analysis of air conditioner (AC) filter dust samples
collected from 15 different commercial sites. Samples were prepared using the Leeds Public Analyst Method and were analyzed
using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) for up to 31 elements. The elements Al, As, Ba, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Fe,
Hf, K, La, Lu, Mn, Na, Nd, Rb, Sc, Sm, Sn, Ta, Th, Yb and Zn were detected in all 15 samples whereas the remaining elements
have been detected in fewer samples; i.e. Mg, Sb and Tb were detected in 14 samples, Br and V in ten samples, U in nine samples
and Ca and Ti in eight samples only. Al, Ca, Fe, K, Mg and Na were determined in all samples at percentage levels. The concentrations
of most elements were found to lie around the mean values for the 15 samples studied and were not orders of magnitude different.
However the concentrations of Ca, Mg, Sn and Zn were found to be more variable and were found to be dependant on activities
such as construction, fruit and vegetable handling, tin plating and transport, respectively.

The yurt is one of the ancient living units for the nomadic cultural country. The yurt is a nomadic vernacular architecture, which has been developed for 3000 years. There are 31 counties using the yurt, out of which 13 of them use their traditional yurt around the world. Basically, the yurt was used as residential housings and today, also to some extent, for commercial and touristic purposes under different climates. Analyzing existing literature, as well as scientific publications it is apparent that besides architectural and structural topics, there is no existing investigation or published paper about building physics analysis of these buildings. Current research aims to create a database about energy and climate comfort qualities of traditional yurts using dynamic calculation tools. As a result, to intend to learn from the traditional yurt technology and to develop a completely new and modern building prototype based on the yurt-experiments in next step of research. Firstly, finding optimal solutions for a contemporary yurt-building' should be applied under Mongolian climate conditions, since this form of housing is still used in this country, and, in addition, the comfort and energy performance of the yurts were surprisingly satisfactory under extreme weather conditions, by temperature differences between summer and winter of approx. 80 K.
