Batu Gajah dental clinic was built in early 70's where it provides services to the residents nearby. Recently, the patients and staff of the clinic complained about the level of comfort in the waiting area of the clinic whichwas said as very warm and uncomfortable. Besides, the monthly electricity consumption of the clinic increased significantly recently. Therefore, a study on the cooling energy of the clinic is required in order to identify rooms for improvements in thermal comfort and its energy consumption. The objective of the project is to study and analyse the building thermal performance and various factors towards energy saving in the clinic. In this project, the study involves calculations of the dental clinic's cooling energy and measurement of the temperature at various points in the waiting area during various conditions. Interviews are conducted with patients at the waiting area, and it is found that among of them prefer to wait outside the clinic due to the hot condition in the indoor area. Detailed analysis on the current trend of operation is conducted to identify potential energy conservation measures. At the end of this report, several ideas are proposed.
