    Overview

    All dashboards are not created equal. The term “dashboard” today continues to be flaunted when marketing any screen-based display with flashy graphics and energy related charts. But what do you get when you decide to purchase a dashboard?  This seminar presents a rational method for categorizing building automation dashboards to indicate required features at each level so that owners, operators, designers, and contractors can discuss their needs in the same terms.  Explore the four levels of dashboards, ranging from interactive analysis of static data to ongoing continuous analysis of live streams of building automation “big data” sets. Armed with a better notion of the overall range of available dashboard toolsets and the required amount of effort to accomplish each Level, facility owners, and operators can select an application which best suits their needs.

    Overview

    Cities are incubators of innovation and opportunities, but they also face great challenges such as rapid urbanization, and climate change. Smart cities initiatives seek to optimize existing city infrastructure and networks, through the deployment and utilization of digital networks. This class will focus on how cities that employ optimization techniques and innovative technologies have reported improvements in energy efficiency (e.g. building energy peak demand, demand response and electric grid management & response), water use (water conservation, water recycling) and many other areas. ­Some examples include: diagnostics and assessments of city energy use and energy efficiency potential, implementing zero-energy solutions in existing buildings; converting street lighting to LED lighting systems, smart coupling of renewable (e.g. photovoltaic) and energy storage with the development of an integral energy – neutral plan.

    Objectives

    • Understand the current environmental, energy, housing, and mobility issues facing cities.
    • Establish resilient, agile, adaptable and efficient energy systems.
    • Foster responsive technologies that enable and improve energy conservation, efficiency, mobility and infrastructure.

    Overview

    While the LEED Standards were initially geared toward commercial office buildings, LEED has since expanded into many different market sectors including restaurants and retail.  Restaurant and retail spaces have a number of unique considerations, including occupancy demands, waste streams, and energy and water use, that warrant a more niche and specific LEED offering.  Nearly 100 national and independent retailers and franchisees, including Chipotle, McDonald’s, Pizza Fusion & Starbucks have achieved LEED Certification for their retail spaces, providing valuable feedback to inform the rating systems’ development.

    This workshop is designed for professionals who want to gain a practical understanding of LEED and how it can be successfully applied to restaurant and retail spaces.  As part of the workshop, participants will work through several project examples and case studies from LEED projects while developing useful tools and strategies that can be applied to their unique spaces, organizations and projects.

    Objectives

    • Learn how to LEED for restaurants and retail addresses energy, water, waste, materials and human health
    • Develop a preliminary LEED Scorecard for sample retail and/or restaurant projects
    • Review case studies of projects that have successfully implemented LEED for restaurants and retail space
    • Highlight LEED-related strategies.

    Overview

    New energy codes require homes to be far tighter than ever before. Title 24 now requires fresh air ventilation systems to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Selecting ventilation systems can be complicated and builders are challenged to choose between many different system types. Learn from real-world pictures and graphics to sort through the myriad of system choices to help choose the most cost-effective system to meet and exceed code. This class explains why properly ventilated, well-insulated and tighter homes have fewer moisture problems, perform better, last longer and are healthier to live in than the typically insulated, “accidentally ventilated” home.

    Objectives

    • Learn how fresh air ventilation systems enhance indoor air quality and why they are needed to avoid back drafting of combustion appliances and fireplaces.
    • Understand the differences between negative, positive and balanced ventilation systems.
    • Discover the common pitfalls and mistakes when selecting a fresh air ventilation system.
    • Learn the fundamentals of ASHRAE 62.2, the national ventilation standard that is referenced in the energy codes.

      Overview

      The persistent push to build more sustainable and energy efficient buildings requires owners, design teams, and contractors to step out of their comfort zone and adopt the new products and emerging technologies which will help them reach the project’s energy and sustainability goals.  Frequently, a net-zero energy goal results in a combination of building technologies which have never been tested before.  The inherent risks and rewards in attempting to build with new products and technologies are often not addressed until they result in delays or change orders.  Even the most critical areas of a hospital can become green without any adverse risk. This session offers strategies to manage risk from idea to implementation from the perspective of a building owner, a construction defect attorney, and a professional design engineer. Learn how to guarantee the success of your green building project!

      Objectives
