How a LEED Platinum Building Keeps Cool through the Summer Heat: ENR2 Building

Engineers Henry Johnstone, Joyce Kelly, and Stanley Yellowhair of GLHN Architects & Engineers will describe their role in the ENR2 building design processes, from early concept through final commissioning and building occupancy. Operational and innovative strategies used to achieve LEED Platinum will be outlined. First year energy measurement and verification data will be compared against the design period energy model, and conclusions drawn on the level of efficiencies in modeling. A detailed breakdown of the annual Energy Use Intensity (EUI) will demonstrate areas where the building is exceeding expectations along with those where additional opportunities exist. The presentation concludes with a summary of Lessons Learned.

Where: Environment and Natural Resources 2, 1064 E. Lowell S, Tucson, AZ 85719. Room: S225 with technology available for video-conference. Remote attendance is available.
Sponsor: The Institute of the Environment, University of Arizona
Speakers from GLHN Architects & Engineers: ​Henry Johnstone, PE, President; Joyce Kelly, LEED AP BD+C, LEED Champion; and Stanley Yellowhair, LEED AP, BESA, Mechanical Designer

Speaker Bios:

Henry Johnstone, PE is Director of Mechanical Engineering and President of GLHN Architects & Engineers, Inc., an integrated architectural and engineering firm headquartered in Tucson, Arizona. Henry was Principal in Charge of the ENR2 project, coordinating university and owner requests with design architects richard+bauer and the engineering staff of GLHN, as well as GLHN’s BIM (building information modeling) construction document efforts. Henry continues to be involved in the project with watch of data analysis and systems operation over the first year of occupancy and measurement and verification period.

Joyce Kelly, LEED AP BD+C, is a Commissioning Authority focused on lighting and controls commissioning and performance of commercial energy audits. She was the firm’s LEED Champion for the ENR2 building. She recently published an article in Trend Report titled “Reducing Energy is a Shady Business” highlighting low cost methods of reducing energy use; featured project was ENR2 at the University of Arizona. She has also been published on the USGBC website; an article regarding GLHN’s approach to obtaining LEED Silver certification for the Tucson Streetcar Maintenance and Storage Facility, a unique building type.

Stanley Yellowhair, LEED AP, BESA was project mechanical designer for ENR2. He is a certified Building Energy Simulation Analyst (BESA) and a LEED Accredited Professional. Stanley is responsible for developing energy models during concept design and design development for use in integrating quantitative energy performance parameters into architectural, mechanical, and electrical systems design. He models annual energy consumption using Trane Trace, eQuest and other programs using ASHRAE 90.1 baselines in accordance with LEED certification requirements.
