As we move increasingly toward market-viable net-zero buildings with initiatives like ASHRAE Vision 2020 and the AIA 2030 Commitment, we must reevaluate how typical building components affect a facility’s energy efficiency. Energy savings and thermal comfort gained from an increase in air movement is an important new consideration in building efficiency and energy conservation. Greg Phipps, Test Engineer at the Big Ass Fan Company, will discuss how incorporating air movement in new building designs allows reduced air conditioning capacity and ductwork, opening up ceiling space. He will also address the ventilation and energy saving benefits of air movement, and will provide an in-depth review of two recent projects that demonstrate exceptional air movement strategy: Oakland Unified School District and Locust Trace High School.
