Code Dread: Keeping up with ASHRAE and LEED

Design firms will be in the best position to meet their clients’ needs by understanding and preparing for ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and LEED v4, both of which have expanded from their earlier versions and will have major impacts on buildings going forward.
The effect of these and other changes will be illustrated by applying the new standards to an existing LEED-certified project.  This presentation will conceptually apply the new standards to a building addition that was completed for KJWW Engineering Consultants in 2008, which was certified LEED Silver and which projected an energy cost savings of 21.5 percent over a baseline of ASHRAE 90.1-2004.
First, a new baseline using the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 standard was applied to the project, which is required under LEED v2009. Next, a baseline for the project using ASHRAE 90.1-2010 was applied to the project, which represents the requirements under LEED v4. Both comparisons will show the decrease in energy savings, points awarded, and strategies and cost required to bring the project back to the original energy savings and the LEED certification it might attain, along with some probable costs that might have been incurred.
  • Participants will be able to identify the major changes in ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and why it is important to begin preparing clients for these changes now.
  • Participants will be able to describe the changes made in ASHRAE 90.1 over the years making for more stringent requirements and an increased need for creative and innovative solutions.
  • Participants will be able to discuss how a LEED-certified building under one version of the standard would not necessarily be certified under a newer version — and changes required to maintain the projected energy savings.
  • Participants will be able to identify how energy modeling can help design firms plan for and reach a project’s energy savings goal with respect to ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and LEED v4.
SPEAKER: Scott Bowman, PE LEED Fellow, Owner, Building Sage at Integrated Design + Energy Advisors, LLC
Scott retired as Principal and Corporate Sustainability Leader with KJWW, a multi-discipline engineering consulting firm of over 500 people, in June of 2014.  He represents extensive experience in consulting engineering and the built environment. He was involved in most LEED projects (over 130 upon his retirement) for the firm and speaks regularly on sustainability at regional and national conferences (including Greenbuild and Greening the Heartland) and provides regular training on multiple subjects.  In 2014 Scott was inducted as a LEED Fellow at Greenbuild in New Orleans.
