Session X: Putting it all together: achieving 2030 goals on the project and at the office
Success with advanced energy performance projects requires not only a detailed understanding of the individual strategies involved, but also a strategic understanding of the architect’s role in the design and construction process and how to orchestrate an already dauntingly complex process. This session revisits the integrated design and target creating process, and then looks outward to contextualize the architect in the larger environment of the project and—equally important—the firm. Key to the success of the 2030 Challenge is movement from learning to action. This session will examine the movement from in-class exercise to on-site implementation. Additionally, the session will provide tools for helping your firm institutionalize the creation of high-performance buildings and becoming a change agent within your community.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Set energy performance targets early to inform design objectives
- Justify the inclusion of integrated energy efficiency strategies in projects
- Teach other design professionals in their firm and community about advanced energy efficiency strategies for buildings
Good design makes a difference
