This 1-hour presentation provides a brief overview of a LEED Platinum Net-Zero Energy Warehouse designed for the National Institute of Health in North Carolina and certified (v2009) in October 2018. Using current analysis and simulation tools, David will look to validate the project’s design decisions to reduce energy use, and Simran will demonstrate how performing a Lifecyle Assessment (LCA) can be used to balance embodied carbon, cost, and performance targets on projects. As a retrospective on a project designed over 5 years ago, David and Simran will summarize whether the analysis suggests design improvements that would be beneficial to implement if designed today.

HSW Justification: Demonstrate use of evidence-based analysis tools to inform early design decision-making that assesses energy efficiency, environmental impact, and overall building and user health/wellness experience. Demonstrate how to incorporate software into workflow that evaluates whole building lifecycle and embodied carbon reduction strategies to inform material selection and specifications. Demonstrate how to use analysis tools to streamline data analysis and reporting to the AIA 2030 Design Data Exchange (DDx), helping signatory firms meet their commitments.
