Your firm signed up for the 2030 Challenge . . . so now what? In this presentation, BIM and energy specialists from Dekker/Perich/Sabatini will outline how they’ve implemented the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Challenge. In this 90-minute session, we will discuss key considerations, from becoming a 2030 signatory through the software and best practices implemented during reporting. We will then dive into how to investigate model analysis and provide valuable feedback to clients and design teams, including how to lower the predicted energy use intensity (EUI) while targeting the reduction goals set by the 2030 Challenge. We'll also cover the deliverables provided to project teams to ensure confidence in proposed energy-saving tactics. This presentation will provide attendees with the tools needed to not only implement 2030 at their firms, but to also make a difference by reducing their carbon footprint.
- Learn how to create a schematic energy model and how to advance that throughout the process
- Learn how to implement a 2030 reporting process at your firm
- Learn how to analyze the data to guide design decisions
- Learn how to fine-tune your presentation
Aaron Ketner completed his Master of Architecture from the University of New Mexico in 2017. His work and research focuses on high performance building design with iterative and comparative analysis tools, smart urbanism and cities, smart building sensors, distributed renewable energy generation and social cohesion. As an Energy Specialist for Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, he leads the Building Performance Analysis Team in collaboration with the Design Technology Group and Team Green. He is also contributing to AIA 2030 efforts by analyzing and reporting D/P/S projects into the 2030 Design Data Exchange, which tracks energy use and provides insight towards achieving carbon-neutral buildings. Aaron regularly speaks at local and industry events. He recently presented at an Autodesk Impact Speaker event in San Francisco and Autodesk University in Las Vegas.
I am a BIM tech at D/P/S and since I have started here, I have found my self fascinated with energy modeling. It all began with my BPA certification and I was hooked. Since then I have made it my personal mission to promote sustainable solutions through the office and our city. We have taken this challenge head on and signed up with the 2030 initiative and became 1/170 reporting firms in 2016. We now run Energy analysis on every new construction project that goes through our doors!!! I believe with this effort we can dramatically reduce our carbon footprint, thus saving the world one model at a time.. Be an energy hero!!
