Who Sabotaged My High-Performance Building
There are many items that show up again and again in design and construction practices that guarantee low performance, waste energy, and drive occupants crazy. This presentation covers: It’s in the details! – 10 drawing details that make the difference between a functioning system and a non-functioning system. The “key” design items that will save 20-30% energy above the insulation and high efficiency equipment, OR waste up to 50% if they are missed! The “Key” coordination items that are missed and result in costly change orders are discussed. Two items to include in the project that will make you a hero with the building operating staff are also discussed.
