Mind the Gap: Closing the Bridge Between Design Intent and Performance

Tuesday, Mar 4, 2014

Sponsors: AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE) & ASHRAE NY

Date: Tuesday, March 4, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Location: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place

We need to focus on the “gap” between design intent and the actual performance of buildings. For years engineers, architects and owners have been asking the same question: how will my building perform? This quest for a better understanding of how to predict a building’s energy use has led to the rise in prominence of energy modelers and their involvement in the design process. Even as technology evolves and energy models become more and more sophisticated buildings continue to fall short of their anticipated performance.

Often, projects do not meet predicted energy performance due to a lack of coordination and accountability among those responsible for the design, construction and operation of the building. Additionally, deviations in the installed equipment from those in the design documents can lead to these shortfalls in energy performance.

To narrow this gap between design and performance, the some energy energy modeling groups have begun using NYC's ground-breaking Benchmarking Reports to better predict energy usage. Energy modelers are now able to use the data in the Benchmarking Report to adjust their models and prediction to be more in line with buildings of a similar type and classification.

Speakers: Michael Tillou – Atelier Ten; Ryan Lean – Jaros Baum & Bolle; & Michael Gubbins – Albanese Organization
