How to Use Whole-Building Performance Energy Targets During Design
This is the second session in a series intended to assist owner/design/construction teams to work in a more integrated manner regardless of delivery method. Integrated Design can result in greater building value to an owner, improved building durability, a healthy, comfortable environment for occupants and save energy and money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This workshop focuses on how to use whole-building energy performance targets throughout a building’s design, construction and operations.
This course will cover how to develop benchmark equivalent values for new buildings or major retrofits, using other existing buildings and data sources together. The course will cover how to set a building energy performance target prior to the start of design and how to integrate energy modeling throughout the design process.
The presenters will also discuss key considerations in selecting a dedicated energy consultant.
