Presented by Patrick Chopson

Learning Objectives:

  1. Analyze building designs for various performance criteria.
  2. Compare different strategies for daylight, glare, and quality views.
  3. Develop an understanding of their project’s energy consumption and carbon footprint.
  4. Identify which mechanical systems, envelope assemblies, and other engineering inputs provide the best cost optimization.

This course introduces the general concepts used in building performance and a practical step by step guide of a cabin project in the North Georgia mountains that is featured on the Modern Atlanta tour. Practitioners from the AEC industry will benefit from learning about the need for using daylight to guide design moves along with energy, glare, carbon, and cost in the early design process. Concepts will be demonstrated in an automated web-app but will be broadly applicable to a wide range of tools. A general overview will be followed by step-by-step guidance and a Q&A session.
