This class is part of AIA+2030, a ten-session Professional Series to help design professionals create buildings that meet the energy efficiency goals of the 2030 Challenge. Learn more and Register for the series.

Session Overview:

Success with advanced energy performance projects requires not only a detailed understanding of the individual strategies involved, but also a strategic understanding of the architect’s role in the design and construction process and how to orchestrate an already dauntingly complex process. This session revisits the integrated design and target creating process, and then looks outward to contextualize the architect in the larger environment of the project and—equally important—the firm. Key to the success of the 2030 Challenge is movement from learning to action. This session will examine the movement from in-class exercise to on-site implementation. Additionally, the session will provide tools for helping your firm institutionalize the creation of high-performance buildings and becoming a change agent within your community.

Learning Objectives:
Set energy performance targets early to inform design objectives
Justify the inclusion of integrated energy efficiency strategies in projects
Teach other design professionals in their firm and community about advanced energy efficiency strategies for buildings
