Who we are

The mission of the AIA Small Firm Exchange (SFx) is to advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms. The objectives of the AIA SFx are three-fold:

1. Advocate for small firms within the AIA and in outside organizations and agencies.
2. Promote leadership in Small Firm professional development and practice; and
3. Facilitate and support the local component round tables and small firm networks.

    Part 2 of 4 in the AIA SF COTE series on Building Performance" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Integrating Energy Analysis in the Design Process - AIA's Performance Guidelines  

    Effective integration of energy simulation in the design process is not yet standard practice. Making the jump to performance guided design can be challenging for both designers and energy analysts without experience. In this presentation Erik Kolderup will discuss ASHRAE Standard 209-2018 Energy Simulation Aided Design, which provides guidance for integrating energy analysis in the design of nonresidential buildings. The new AIA guide Integrating Performance Simulation in the Design Process references Std 209 and describes how to simplify the process of integrating performance modeling into design by defining minimum requirements for providing energy design simulation and analysis at different stages of design. The program will also feature a local architect discussing how their firm has used energy modeling to support design.

    Tuesday November 19th 12:00pm-130pm Pacific

    This presentation will be held in-person at the AIASF, 130 Sutter St., 6th Fl., San Francisco, and will be simulcast via internet in collaboration with the Pacific Energy Center." target="_blank" rel="noopener">
