The AIA Technology in Architectural Practice Knowledge Community (TAP) serves as a resource for AIA members, the profession, and the public in the deployment of computer technology in the practice of architecture. TAP leaders monitor the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.
Tuesday, November 18th @ 3pm EST Design excellence includes evaluating alternatives for creating high performance buildings. Building energy modeling should not be limited to a few special projects due to complexity it should be just a part of the everyday design process. This discussion will highlight the architect’s obligation to create buildings that are environmentally responsible and remove some of the mystery of getting started with building energy modeling. Learning objectives 1. Be able to lead a discussion on the purpose and benefits of energy modeling 2. Be able to outline a project strategy on how to get started to apply energy modeling to the design process 3. Have a basic understanding of the how to achieve ASHRAE and LEED requirements for energy performance 4. To be aware of energy modeling software applications and their intended use #webinar #energymodeling #TechnologyinArchitecturalPractice #TAPwebinar
