Effective Integration of Energy Modeling During Schematic Design and Design Development



Online Webinar / AIA SF - 130 Sutter St. Suite 600, San Francisco, California 94104

December 11, 2019

The list of design questions during schematic design (SD) and design development (DD) is long, and schedules are tight. It is common that many decisions are made without taking advantage of information from energy analysis. The result can be lost opportunities for improved performance. As energy codes become more stringent and designers adopt aggressive energy performance goals, it is becoming more important to integrate the use of energy analysis in order to make informed decisions.

This presentation is for architects who are looking for guidance on how to use energy analysis in design, rather than simply to document compliance with an energy code requirement. Topics include identifying the SD and DD design questions that can be effectively addressed by energy analysis, developing an energy analysis plan, engaging an energy modeling specialist, and working with the specialist to get timely and useful information. This presentation will be held in-person at the AIASF, 130 Sutter St., 6th Fl., San Francisco, and will be simulcast via internet in collaboration with the Pacific Energy Center.

Date & TIme: Wednesday, December 11, 2019; 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
