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:

    Incorporating an integrative approach into the design process is one of the best ways to optimize the energy performance of a building project. This presentation will introduce the audience to the new ASHRAE Standard 209 and discuss how the new framework facilitates an integrative design process and can improve the energy performance of building design projects. While building energy models have traditionally been used to demonstrate code compliance or show beyond-code performance, they don't have to be used solely at the end of a project's design. Project teams can unlock additional stakeholder value by using energy models to improve decision making during design which will maximize the impact of energy improvement measures. Standard 209 modeling cycles also include provisions to help ensure energy performance goals remain intact through design, construction and operations.

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Become familiar with the new ASHRAE Standard 209 - Energy Simulation Aided Design for Buildings except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
    2) Learn how to include building energy modeling to support decision-making during design.
    3) Discover how early stage energy modeling can be used on your projects to meet your energy performance goals and comply with the Architecture 2030 Challenge.
    4) Describe how ASHRAE Standard 209 can be used to meet and exceed LEED v4 Integrative Process credit requirements.
