Integrated Design Process: How to Use Whole-Building Performance Energy Targets During Design

San Francisco - Pacific Energy Center Webinar
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (PST)
Event Details This is the fourth session in a series on how owner/design/construction teams can work in a more integrated manner regardless of delivery method. Integrated Design can result in buildings that have greater value to an owner, improved durability, better environments for occupants, and use less energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This session focuses on how to use whole-building energy performance targets throughout a building’s design, construction and operations. The instructors will cover how to develop benchmark equivalent performance values for new buildings or major retrofits, using other existing buildings and data sources together. Janika and John will also discuss how to set a building energy performance target prior to the start of design, who needs to be involved in the process, and how to integrate energy modeling throughout the design process so that it informs ongoing decision making. They will describe ASHRAE Standard 209, Energy Simulation-Aided Design for Buildings, a new standard establishing design requirements for energy modeling practice, and key considerations in selecting a dedicated energy consultant. The focus of this session is nonresidential and multi-unit residential buildings.
