Sep 6, 2019 NZEB Knowledge Series Webinar – ASHRAE HQ NZE Renovation
ASHRAE is synonymous to holding high energy efficiency benchmarks. The organization purchased a 1970s mid-century building to relocate its global headquarters to Atlanta by renovating this 67,000 sqft facility into a NZEB. ASHRAE was very clear about its objectives – to develop a project that is economically feasible, scalable and replicable by an average building owner to achieve net-zero. The project aimed to showcase the latest technology achieving superior efficiency and comfort with net-zero operation while representing the organization’s sustainability values.
This webinar hosted Mr. Shreshth Nagpal, Principal at the Integral Group, who specializes in building-physics analyses and has helped inform design decisions of several award-winning projects that represent a broad spectrum of types, scales, climates, and performance goals. In this webinar, he enumerated the design principles and energy optimization strategies adopted by the team to develop a high performance facility.
