The American Institute of Architects Elevates Three Local Architects to the College of Fellows
AIA Fellowship Recognizes Significant Contributions to the Profession of Architecture and Society
The 2018 Jury of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects elevated three AIA Columbus members to its prestigious College of Fellows, an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession. This year 152 AIA members were elevated and will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the AIA Conference on Architecture in New York City. The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Out of a total AIA membership of over 91,000, less than 4 percent are distinguished with this honor. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
We are pleased to announce the 2018 AIA Columbus elevated Fellows, Jonathan Barnes, FAIA, Bernard Costantino, FAIA, and Troy Sherrard, FAIA.

Schematic Energy Modeling for Architects
Learn what an energy model can/cannot do and resources available for architects to begin quantifying energy in the early stages
Wednesday, August 30, 2017
Presented By: Joshua Lloyd, Associate AIA, LEEP AP BD+C
The architecture profession has tasked itself to be leaders in addressing climate change by adopting the 2030 Challenge. The Challenge looks to reduce the energy usage of buildings, currently accounting for approximately two-thirds of our national energy demand. Even with integrated design practices, energy is often still an afterthought. Energy usage does not get quantified until teams are well into the design process. However, architects have the knowledge to break away from the contemporary rules of thumb. Now, there are tools and resources available for architects to begin quantifying energy even in the early stages of design. This can be done even before an engineering consultant is engaged in the project. This is especially beneficial early in design, when changes are easier and less costly to make.
In this presentation, we will cover some of the low/no cost software available for those early energy studies, and learn what an energy model can and cannot do. If time allows, we will run through a quick “shoe box” model simulation to show how your teams can quantify energy and dollar savings to improve performance.
