The Value of Energy Analysis, From Design Day One
Join USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter and ASHRAE St. Louis for an interactive program that will provide attendees with a charrette experience for evaluating and driving building energy performance—to analyze results in real time, as early as pre-design. During this session, volunteer participants act as design team members from all disciplines, working with real building characteristics and an actual building design. Using an analysis approach that assists with a cost benefit discussion, the participants will assemble “bundles” of selected energy efficiency measures to play out what-if scenarios, discussing the merits and challenges of each bundle. This program, with live tools and facilitation, will demonstrate an effective method for guiding energy decision-making during early design, towards achieving higher efficiency goals and increasingly stringent energy codes. Tuesday, August 8, 2017, 5:30 – 7:30 pm, Sheet Metal Workers Local 36, 2319 Chouteau, Suite 200 (63103) ree for USGBC-MGC Members, ASHRAE St. Louis Members, and full time students; $20 for Non-members, REGISTER: usgbc-mogateway.org/calendar.
