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.

Webinar: AIA's Guide to Integrating Building Performance Simulation

  • 1.  Webinar: AIA's Guide to Integrating Building Performance Simulation

    Posted 05-30-2019 12:14
    AIA is releasing a new AIA Guide to Integrating Building Performance Simulation in the Design Process, a resource that helps architects incorporate energy modeling into their design process to achieve greater energy efficiency. One resource mentioned in the Guide is Project StaSIO. In this live AIAU course, Kjell Anderson, Alejandra Menchaca, Jacob Dunn, and Amarpreet Sethi will discuss the main takeaways from the AIA Guide to Integrating Building Performance Simulation and how the profiles in the Project Stasio database can guide architects to incorporate energy efficient strategies into their own projects.

    If Conference was almost anywhere else than Lost Wages, this is a session that I wouldn't miss!  Great team doing the presentation.  The new Guide is an almost complete re-write and is full of great information and resources - including Project StaSIO.  Don't miss this one!  And make it back from Modern Gomorrah safe and sound.

    @Kim Shinn this is actually a webinar, so you can attend from anywhere!

    @Richard J. Linsky yes, I actually bumped into one of my sustainability colleagues at Conference yesterday.  She said they are putting the finishing touches on the guide and it will be released soon. I'll update this thread once I know the release date.
