ABSTRACT: There is a complex interplay of issues associated with retrofitting high-rise office buildings
in warm climates. This paper explores non-technological and technological interventions for retrofitting
and the potential environmental benefits associated with them. An approach is developed in the
context of bioclimatic renovation design for existing high-rise office buildings in warm climates in
Australia that offers opportunities for promoting energy-efficient practices through the exploitation of
occupant behaviour, building design and powered systems in the commercial building sector.
