Since 1887, AIA has relied on a committee of experts to help draft and update its Contract Documents. Revising on a 10-year cycle, the AIA Contract Documents Committee strives to achieve balance in contract language and build consensus among industry stakeholders. The revised AIA A201 family of documents, including owner-architect and owner-contractor agreements, were released in April. In this session we will explore important revisions and how they impact project team members, owners and building occupants. This program will give insight into AIA’s revision process and key changes for 2017, how revisions impact practice and how the Sustainable Projects Exhibit can be used to provide a positive outcome on health, safety & welfare.

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.
