BSUG October Event: Performance Modeling for Standards/Code Compliance


Building Simulation Users Group


October 28, 2020

Do you ever wonder what happens if you design an efficient building, but it doesn’t meet all the prescriptive requirements of the IECC or ASHRAE 90.1? This session will explore the performance compliance paths for the IECC and ASHRAE 90.1. We’ll discuss building systems that often require performance based compliance, like mass walls, high window to wall ratios, and economizers, as well as strategies to keep your energy targets on track as you progress through the design. This session will help you not only comply with code, but also employ strategies to make your building as efficient and economical as possible. Remember, energy code is the lowest building efficiency allowed by law.

Date & Time: October 28, 2020; 12pm to 1:00pm MT
