Learn how the Minnesota Army National Guard has achieved energy efficiency at two of their recently completed facilities during this April 11 LEED Lunch & Learn session in Minneapolis.

Statewide, government entities are continuing to look for ways to reduce energy use as they develop new buildings under more stringent code requirements. The Army National Guard has adopted aggressive energy goals for new buildings, including LEED, SB 2030 and Department of Defense requirements — all within tight budget constraints.

This session will examine how these goals have been achieved in the design, construction, and operation at two facilities. Predicted energy use and operation will be compared to metered use, including financial outcomes.

Presenters — Brian Wass and Bob Jefferies

Continuing education credits — This course is approved for 1 GBCI CE's and AIA LU/HSW's

Learning objectives

  • Explore the MNARNG policies, planning, and budgeting that have provided the means to implement their energy goals
  • Identify how the building owner and design teams implemented a planning and budget process to achieve the efficiency and IEQ goals in design and construction of recent new facilities
  • Distinguish between methodologies that worked, or have not worked, in the new facilities through operational experience and metered data
  • Apply practical knowledge to develop a process for setting realistic energy goals and the means to implement and monitor commercial building energy use.
