Course Description:

Shifting energy codes are challenging architects with a wide array of parameters to balance like energy, cost, daylight, views, and embodied carbon. Hiring a consultant for every kind of analysis is a burden on fees. Many architects are harnessing simulation to shape the design and details of their projects. To be successful, teams must understand the levers that impact the performance and set up processes for success. Join this session by diving into two case studies to generate beautiful analysis graphics and see how to shape the narrative in a data-driven design process.

HSW Justification:

Daylight, glare, and views have shown to have a direct impact on occupant health and well-being. The course discusses in detail on what the key parameters are and how architectural designers and incorporate them into their workflow.

Learning Objective 1:

Overview of key performance parameters on project and their financial impact. We’ll dive into various building performance analyses including daylight analysis, glare analysis, shadow analysis, sun hours, radiation studies and more. Then, we’ll examine how to balance cost to ensure the project is both high performance and within budget

Learning Objective 2:

Learn about how 2 distinct teams iterated to achieve high performance project design. In building design, collaboration is key. This course will provide examples of how teams can work together to create cost effective, sustainable building designs.

Learning Objective 3:

Use the case studies to understand the core workflow for performance driven decision making. To set up processes for success, architects must understand the key factors that impact a building’s performance.

Learning Objective 4:

Track and report projects to the AIA 2030.There are many misconceptions about the 2030 challenge. We’ll explain how simple it is to measure progress, reach targets, and report to the DDX.
