Join the USGBC North Carolina Triangle Branch for our September bi-monthly educational event. In "Conserving Energy in Building Design and Operations: Behind the Curtain of K-12 Energy Considerations," we'll delve deeper into energy considerations to impact both your design process and user considerations.
Covering issues that can impact any building type, our speakers will speak specifically to K-12 programs and how schools use energy, highlighting ways to conserve energy both during design and operation.
Steve Daley, Managing Principal and Mechanical Engineer with Optima Engineering, will discuss how modeling can be used effectively during the design to optimize the systems, and how ultimately the end user has an enormous effect on the energy performance of the building.
Brian Callaway, Coordinator of Energy and Sustainability for Durham Public Schools will address energy consumption in both new and existing buildings, focusing on tremendous energy-saving opportunities in K-12 schools and all facilities.
- Explain "why" energy consumption is key in public school environments.
- Explore opportunities for design firms to integrate more effective energy strategies in design.
- Learn about user considerations and occupancy needs, specifically for K-12 building types.
- Explore existing building energy considerations through an operations perspective
