USGBC - Northern California Chapter

New Title 24 Requirements and Holistic Building Performance Modeling

This session will cover the newest regulatory energy requirements in California (Title 24) that go into effect July 1, 2014 for non-residential building energy performance analysis. Participants will additionally learn how to integrate simulation of light, energy end-uses, peak HVAC loads, climate, bioclimate, airflow, and occupant comfort using fundamental principles of buildings physics to assess strategies at the earliest stages of the design process. Using case studies as well as readily available design tools, attendees will learn about the dynamic and complex interaction of building systems, energy modeling and how to leverage these opportunities early on to design high performance buildings in a competitive marketplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the workflow for developing a 3-D model for Title 24 Compliance
  • Create & assign building constructions to a 3-D model for Title 24 Compliance
  • Zone a 3-D model, create and assign HVAC systems to the zones
  • Understand how energy modeling and T24 compliance is an integral component to holistic building performance analysis (ie. LEED Platinum, NZE, Living Building Challenge, etc)
  • Introduction to IES-VE full suite of building simulation and analysis tools

Who should attend: Architects, engineers, general contractors, energy modelers, and sustainability consultants who have experience with 3D modeling or performance modeling.

About the speaker:

Liam BuckleyLiam Buckley is a Project Manager for the North American division of IES Ltd. His consulting expertise includes whole-building energy analysis & optimization, daylight analysis and optimization, detailed HVAC simulation, renewable energy systems, computational fluid dynamics, natural ventilation analysis and occupancy thermal comfort analysis.

Climate Change as a Health Issue

To many, climate change conjures up thoughts of tired political battles, extreme weather or stranded polar bears. Perhaps most devastatingly, it can instill feelings of helplessness.

InfluenzaBut what if climate change instead drew awareness of unpredictable migrations of infectious disease, increases in childhood asthma, and major vulnerabilities in our built environment? That’s where the conversation is increasingly headed, especially for the world’s most vulnerable communities. Framing both global warming and green building as public health issues rather than an environmental one produces the most emotionally compelling response. It quite literally hits home. How can sustainable building and community-scale design offer a clear pathway toward a healthier planet?

Join a panel of the world’s preeminent experts on the topics of climate change, resiliency, green building and public health for a thought-provoking conversation at the intersection of climate change, public health and the built environment.

    Outdoor Lighting: Changing the Conversation

    Nancy Clanton, renowned expert in sustainable lighting design, calls it “safety in numbers” - the default for illuminance, measured footcandles. It’s the bane of lighting designers and a major challenge in reconciling appropriate illumination levels with client expectations. One size does not fit all. What we see is reflected light so intensity, glare, color rendering, contrast and adaptation play the pivotal roles in the visual experience. Lighting technology continues to advance at a rapid rate so collaboration and testing alongside key constituents is crucial to achieve the right light solutions. Rick Utting, Director of Lighting at Landscape Forms, will present the latest guidance and technology that leave participants armed to evaluate outdoor lighting for future projects.
