This session will cover how to integrate simulation of light, energy end-uses, peak HVAC loads, climate, bioclimate, airflow, and occupant comfort using fundamental principals of buildings physics to asses strategies at the earliest stages of the design process. Using case studies as well as readily available design tools, attendees will learn about the dynamic and complex interaction of building systems and how to leverage these opportunties early on to design high performance buildings in a competitive marketplace.
This session will also include a tour of SF Environment's new offices.
