We are very excited to be a sponsor of High Performance Buildings Seminar, which addresses what really works when tackling major improvements in energy efficiency. There will also be learning tracks on Net Zero, energy reduction, and sustainability covering case studies of high performance buildings. 5 AIA & 6 PDH/GBCI Credits! Make sure to check out our Breakout Session: Architectural Design Strategies for Sustainable Buildings. Sustainable design is more than building system efficiency, materials, lighting controls and fixtures. A sustainable building incorporates architectural techniques that create the basis all other sustainable “components.” True integrated design includes architectural strategies such as building reuse, building siting/placement, massing, orientation, envelope/façade design, glazing and other physical factors impact energy consumption and building systems – before engineers and interior designers are involved. This one hour roundtable discussion will feature design/construction experts discussing architectural design strategies that create more sustainable buildings. Learning objectives: Review and understand a series of architectural design/implementation techniques and strategies Discuss specific strategies, their benefits and challenges Understanding perspectives of architects, engineers, contractor and facility owners Topics may include: SMART, double facades, resilient design, photochromic glass, rain screens, air barriers, renewable energy, etc. Speakers: Doug Marsh – SVP and Public Markets Leader, KZF Design Brady Hartmann, RA, LEED AP – Architect, KZF Design Matthew Herman – Director, BuroHappold Engineering Jakob Strømann-Andersen, PhD – Head of Sustainability Engineering, Henning Larsen Architects J.
