Architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers—they’re all critical to the success of a high-performance building-design project. However, accountability and responsibility for performance are not always evenly distributed among these roles. How can we facilitate a discussion between these groups, and how can we get everyone on board with high-performance targets like Architecture 2030? Through collaboration and early analysis. Join us for a design charrette where we will work together to achieve Architecture 2030 targets for a project. This design exercise aims to encourage the adoption of conceptual-analysis tools and sustainable design practices early in the process through collaboration.
- Learn how conceptual analysis tools can help inform early design decisions for building energy performance
- Learn how to use conceptual analysis tools to achieve Architecture 2030 targets for a variety of project types
- Learn how to test actual sustainable building-design strategies with software workflows
- Learn how to work in teams to reduce building-energy cost and meet performance goals
