dc.description.abstract Notwithstanding the immense potential to minimise a building's carbon footprint, there is a very low uptake of mixed mode systems. This paper addresses issues concerning mixed mode buildings in Australian climates that vary from mild to warm/hot climates. The paper documents issues and barriers to the proper functioning of mixed mode buildings based on projects that the authors have reviewed, surveyed or consulted upon. The impact of rating tools and guidelines, limitations in performance prediction, operational issues in practice and insights from post occupancy feedback are discussed from the perspective of mixed mode buildings. Delivering mixed mode buildings via the current commercial processes increases the risk of the design intent not being carried through to completion. The paper identifies a need for comfort guidelines explicitly developed for mixed mode building in contrast to prevailing frameworks for air-conditioned buildings and offers strategies for rethinking comfort, simulation, implementation and operation of mixed mode buildings.
