High Performance Design Training

Results from a Net-Zero Feasibility Study for Warm Springs Community Center

Net-zero buildings are gaining momentum in communities around the country together with the improvement of renewable energy technologies and costs. As this movement grows alongside the challenges of climate change, it is imperative that communities facing social, economic and environmental threats are not left behind. Using funding from Energy Trust’s Special Projects Grant, Hacker Architects worked with PAE Engineers to conduct an early net-zero feasibility study for a community center located on Warm Springs Reservation.

Warm Springs plans to re-purpose an existing commissary building to become a self-reliant and sustainable community center and small business incubator space. The pilot study created by Hacker and PAE will set forth guidelines for future sustainable renovations in Warm Springs and provide a precedent for how other communities can work toward social and energy independence through the effective reuse of existing buildings. This presentation will demonstrate the public design process and the design strategies used to get to a net-zero vision for this project, as well as a brief cost comparison for code vs net-zero design.

Course Objectives:
  • Discuss the methods used to engage the Warm Springs community in the project design process with goals for self-reliance and sustainability.
  • Understand how early engagement between the building owner, architect and engineer is vital to delivering a net-zero project.
  • Identify passive design strategies for existing building improvements.
  • Learn what technologies and modeling techniques are used to validate the net-zero design.
