Design for Energy
Of all the project attributes characterized in the AIA Framework for Design Excellence, ‘Design for Energy’ may be the easiest to measure (while still challenging to achieve). Given that educational facilities are all about our commitment to a better future, educational clients are especially interested in having their facilities be part of the solution to climate change rather than part of the problem. But in a world of constrained budgets and accelerating schedules, how can designers best move their projects towards a carbon-neutral future?

This session will lay out a range of approaches design teams can apply to their projects, from simple rules-of-thumb that can be applied to every project to deep-dive analytical tools appropriate for the most challenging specialty projects—science labs. There will be data. There will be case studies. There will be laughs.
