The AIA Committee on Design will host “The AIA Practice Guide to Integrating Energy Modeling in the Design Process” at the AIA National Convention next month in an effort to dispel any and all misconceptions and fears stemming from energy modeling.
In anticipation of that presentation, Mike Singer has put together a nice piece on energy modeling for Architect Magazine and was kind enough to contact me for my thoughts on the subject. The article can be read in full here.
I’m a strong believer energy modeling enables architects to have a longer-term role as a trusted adviser for clients as we can continue to offer direction post-occupancy on energy consumption and performance measures that reflect back to original energy modeling analysis. It lets architects own more of the design process and expands our value.
I encourage you to take a few moments to read the article and if you’re attending the convention, stop in to hear the discussion.
