 1 HSW | Cost: AIA Members: $0 / Non-members: $25


The goal of this presentation is to inform attendees on the requirements and changes that have occurred in the ASHRAE 90.1 energy standard relating to building construction, and the impact that these changes have on the building envelope design in order that new and renovated building construction will comply with the on-going effort to reduce energy use in the built environment.  The ASHRAE 90.1 energy standard is the basis of the International energy code, which is the basis of the North Carolina Energy Code.

Learning Objectives:

1. Upon completion of this program, participants will examine the e history and importance of the ASHRAE 90.1 energy standard and how it's adoption affected building codes in our state.

2. Participants will identify the requirements for building envelope construction to meet the current NC Energy Code.

3. Participants will determine how the envelope construction and resultant energy savings can impact the sizing and selection of the mechanical system.

4. Participants will translate he importance of energy modeling in understanding the total energy use of a building.
