Who we are

The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community (BPKC) is to promote architects as leaders in the application of technical design for building performance; in the use of high-performance design criteria, codes, and standards; and in programming, designing and managing building performance. To advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the architecture profession, AIA members, building owners, the construction industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that create buildings that are healthy, energy efficient, and durable.

    Course Description:

    Join the AIA Codes Advocacy Program for a special three-part miniseries on the national model energy standard, ASHRAE Standard 90.1. Each one-hour session will cover one of the three most recent editions from 2010, 2013, & 2016. One of these standards may already adopted in the jurisdiction(s) where you practice, and the newest editions will likely arrive in the coming years. What do architects need to know?

    All three sessions will begin with a general overview of ASHRAE Standard 90.1, including its development process, its format and organization, its compliance options, and the standard's place within the design process and achieving high performance design. Then each specific session will focus on the changes and most important things architects should know about the 2010, 2013, & 2016 standards as they make their into state & local energy codes.

    Attendees may be most interested to learn about the significant changes included in the most recent standard published in October 2016 which contains 125 addenda to the 2013 standard. While it will not immediately be adopted by most municipalities and states, typically the newer versions begin to become referenced in utility rebate programs, green building programs, corporate portfolio standards, and particularly municipal accelerated green building incentives. Architects that understand each edition's requirements and their concepts will be able to offer clients a "straight out of the box" and proven cost effective high performance building that exceeds all current energy codes.

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    I mess up and missed the webinar. It would be nice if these were recorded for viewing afterwards. Unexpected business does sometimes get in the way
