Low-carbon and high-performance sustainability objectives are increasingly a priority for commercial and institutional building owners. High-performance strategies may be well understood for standard building types, but specialized expertise is required to achieve the same performance goals in buildings with unique needs. In this talk, you’ll hear from RDH team members around North America on low-carbon energy performance goals and strategies for commercial and institutional buildings with custom needs. We’ll share case studies on commercial kitchens, swimming pools, wet labs, and other custom building uses. We’ll also discuss the importance of evaluating these projects holistically to optimize their design.
You’ll Learn About:
1. Understand low-carbon energy performance goals for commercial and institutional buildings.
2. Identify sustainable design strategies for custom building uses.
3. Recognize the importance of evaluating a project holistically from multi-discipline perspectives to optimize the design.
4. Identify systems that contribute to low-carbon building design and retrofits.
