Course Description

In this module you will explore today’s world view of energy efficiency is very different from the energy conservation mentality of the 1970s, which is recalled by those of us who were around then as a time of long lines at the gas pumps and diminished comfort in our homes and places of work. The energy efficiency model of today involves benefits, not sacrifices. In high performance buildings, energy efficient design begins with a methodical reduction of the building’s heating and cooling loads – those imposed by climate and those generated by people and equipment. With all loads minimized, mechanical systems are then selected based on highest output for lowest fuel consumption.

The new efficiency means optimizing the performance of each of the building’s components and systems both individually and in interaction with other energyconsuming systems – air conditioning, lighting, domestic hot water, etc. This is known as the practice of ‘design integration.’ In tandem with other energy efficient practices, building systems integration can provide excellent returns on the initial investment. Current practice also embraces the use of renewable energy technologies that reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and help alleviate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.

In this module we’ll review the commissioning process assures the building owner that the equipment, systems, and controls providing light, heat, cooling, and ventilation are effectively working together in conformance with design intent. Commissioning determines whether the systems need to be adjusted to improve efficiency, indoor air quality, and acoustic performances.
The commissioning process encompasses-but also surpasses-the normal testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) activities commonly performed in inspections. Commissioning also involves comprehensive functional testing to determine how well mechanical and electrical systems work together. Because so many building systems are now integrated, a deficiency in one component can result in substandard operation and performance among other components. In general practice, a commissioning agent assists the construction team in substantively reducing and eliminating defects before the building is turned over to its occupants. Commissioning may also occur based on a partial system upgrade.

In this module we will cover how plumbing systems have evolved from being a simple means of distributing water and collecting wastes into increasingly sophisticated systems that must also address environmental concerns. The design of a plumbing system must incorporate not only traditional issues of sanitation, flow, and pressure, but also environmentally based preferences for recycling wastewater, use of non – utility water, and different treatments for potable and nonpotable water.

New technologies, responses to water efficiency concerns, and community – based water quality goals pose numerous challenges for 21st Century plumbing design. These challenges are often exacerbated by stresses induced by rapid development.

In this module we will review a critical component of high performance design and construction is adequate planning for the efficient operation and maintenance of a building and its systems. Design strategies that address operations and maintenance (O&M) issues can result in reduced custodial costs and lower energy consumption. Exposure to physical and chemical hazards, toxins, odors, and potential asthma ‘triggers’ can be reduced or eliminated. Efficient operation and maintenance also enhances the indoor environment and may contribute positively to the occupant’s well being and productivity.
To achieve successful operations and maintenance, it is important to ensure that planned systems and strategies are consistent with available resources.

In this module we will reivew the process of selecting materials and products for high performance buildings involves consideration of environmental and health issues in addition to more traditional criteria such as cost, durability, performance, and aesthetics. While methods for evaluating products based on these criteria are still evolving, the number of available building products with improved environmental and health characteristics has been steadily increasing. Markets are responding to meet the demands of government, businesses, and consumers who are increasingly aware of health and environmental concerns. Because of the complexities surrounding evaluation of appropriate materials, consultants should have a working familiarity with the key health and environmental issues associated with specific material types. This dynamic and growing field includes new concepts in materials assessment such as embodied energy and product life cycle assessment.

In this module we will review how high performance buildings reflect a concern for the total quality of the interior environment. By definition, they provide supportive ambient conditions, including thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality, visual comfort, and appropriate acoustical quality.
Air temperature, mean radiant temperature, air speed, and humidity are all factors that affect thermal comfort. Dissatisfaction with thermal conditions is the most common source of complaints in office buildings.

In this module we will review the construction and demolition debris that is transported into the waste streams generated by new construction, by renovation, and by the demolition of existing buildings.

Building construction and renovation activities alter the urban environment, generating noise, waste, and air pollution that can stress the building’s occupants and neighbors. High performance construction practices can help reduce adverse effects during construction while improving the building’s long – term environmental performance. In particular, construction and demolition (C&D) waste has become an increasing environmental and municipal burden, equaling up to 30% of the municipal solid waste stream. The majority of this waste is generally disposed of by private haulers engaged by demolition subcontractors and land filled in or out of state, at increasing cost to taxpayers. The strategies that follow can reduce the amount of C&D waste generated at the start.
