About

The lifecycle of a new construction project can last several years. Initial goals are set by the team with high aspirations but are often deviated from as the process continues. Tracking and monitoring the project’s energy goals through design deliverables, energy analysis and commissioning reports is crucial for adhering to objectives. However, what happens when unforeseen issues occur? Does the team achieve the owner’s aspirations? This presentation reviews achieving client goals while working through obstacles, from design inception through occupied building. Working together as a high performance team, performance goals can be achieved and confirmed through post-occupancy measurement and verification.

Objectives

  1. Apply tools to determine an appropriate HVAC system which meets an owner’s energy goals and operations and maintenance expectations while satisfying architectural and acoustical criteria
  2. Identify key project members and how to work together as a team in order to overcome obstacles in order to meet original project goals
  3. Use the commissioning process to troubleshoot and eliminate system operating issues before the project is handed over to the owner
  4. Review methods to track and measure energy use once a building is normally occupied by the owner
