Interface Engineering and Mithun Architects will present how the design team approached the immense challenge of designing a University campus to achieve Net Positive Energy performance across all its buildings. The Mechanical and Electrical design approach includes geothermal heating and cooling, extensive heat recovery, radiant heating and cooling, solar thermal hot water, solar PV, renewable natural gas turbine. The architectural design approach includes super-insulated envelopes, proper daylighting, and a robust program that promotes low energy practices like communal cooking space, grand staircases near entrances, and farm-to-table food service. The analysis-driven process will be shared with attendees so that they can apply the knowledge to their own projects.
Details: There is no charge and dinner will be provided for all attendees. As an AIA accredited course, participants will each earn LU credits. IEI University classes are geared toward senior designers that already have a strong building design background.
