For energy analysts, one of the most difficult challenges is condensing a great deal of data into an intelligible format so architects can understand it. Architects are looking to simulation professionals to help them make early design decisions that align with energy, cost, and design goals.
This 4-hour workshop is taught by three people who helped create Project StaSIO: Alejandra Menchaca, a Building Scientist, Kjell Anderson, an Architect and Aman Singhvi, High Performance Design Specialist. Starting with graphics theory, Alejandra, Kjell, and Aman will take participants through pragmatic steps to improve communication as well as common mistakes simulation professionals make in creating reports for Architects. They will focus on helping attendees find the right data to communicate and then present it simply and compellingly. A final exercise will ask participants to create a graphic using techniques covered in the workshop.
The workshop will only use freely/commonly available software tools such as Excel. No experience in creating advanced graphics is necessary.
Note that the registration page requires users to create an ASHRAE account first. The workshop sign-up is on the second page of the registration application.
