Performance-based Targets for Commercial New Construction: The Design Team’s Toolbox




June 10, 2021

This webinar will explore tools and best practices to give design teams a competitive advantage by helping clients achieve outcome-based energy goals for new construction and major renovation projects. EPA will provide an overview of using ENERGY STAR tools during design and comparing modeled results to operational performance; Moseley Architects will share best practices on setting energy targets and evaluating strategies for high performance design; and Slipstream will demonstrate a cutting-edge iterative energy modeling tool that allows users to get quick results for evaluating design strategies.

Saranya Gunasingh will be sharing some preliminary results from the IBPSA-USA Architectural Simulations Subcommittee's Early Design survey.

Learn how to:

•Select the right energy target
•Communicate with clients about outcome-based energy goals
•Use energy modeling early and often to make decisions during design
•Leverage the appropriate tools to achieve desired outcomes
