Abstract

This study gives us a concise overview to describe the different types of energy efficient buildings, focusing on the verification of design, interference check, prove feasibility, practicability, attitudes, and saving cost. Energy efficiency in buildings may require specific solutions and evaluation. The aim of this study is to investigate the impacts of using the integrated design to deliver energy efficiency in buildings at least cost. Also, this research seeks to mitigate the barriers that impede achievable cost reductions. The literature review and based discussions lead to generate of propositions and questions.
In chapters about the methodology and analysis, the two associated approaches have been employed, the quantitative and qualitative, qualitative and quantitative approaches, examined by research, offering rich expressive analyses and viewed as harmonizing. In this research, the both qualitative and quantitative approaches utilized the research practice that face the problem of construct the gathering data; and are subject to avoid potential bias; in order to examine the impacts of the integrated design on the energy efficiency in buildings and the cost.

This study undertakes a number of recommendations, and identifies lessons to be learned; also, promote improving the design of the energy efficiency in buildings. With these contributions, the research helps prospective users to utilize the integrated design as a potential method offered to energy efficiency in buildings at least cost.
To improve the future work, this study will research further trends to cover the subject areas deeper, in the present questions as below: -
• To investigate the role of public to mitigate the barriers.
• Examine new ways of improving communications to achieve the aim of study.
