Schedule: Thursday, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Track: Performance Measured

DescriptionVentilation is responsible for 45% of the average high-technology building’s energy consumption. With indoor air quality as a central concern in green building initiatives, design professionals need strategies to enrich high-technology programs with efficient climate control methods. Via an analysis of research and healthcare facilities, we uncover the relationship between high-technology designs and their built results. The study includes actual ventilation and the strategies employed to achieve lower rates as well as building performance models showing consumption, comfort, and health measures. Best practices will be synthesized into a set of recommended design techniques to dramatically reduce a project’s outside air requirements.
