High-Performance Green Buildings: The impact of ASHRAE Standard 189.1-2011
Buildings in the United States account for 39 percent of carbon
dioxide emissions, 40 percent of energy consumption and 13 percent of
water consumption. They also occupy valuable land, contribute to urban
heat islands, atmospheric pollution, and landfill waste. More and more
building owners and municipalities want a standard for buildings which
exceed minimum building codes. ASHRAE Standard 189.1-2011 Design of
High-Performance Green Buildings addresses this demand. It’s a
mandatory-language code-intended standard with provisions related to
building sites, water use, energy efficiency, general environmental
impact, and indoor environmental quality. This program presents an
overview of the standard and provides some insight regarding its
potential impact on future building codes and building designs
This program provides an update of each section of the standard, summarizes the ASHRAE definition of a high-performance building, summarizes the relationship between standards, codes and building rating systems and identifies the updates to referenced ASHRAE standards and how they impact 189.1.
Includes presentation slides, presenter biographies, outline and bibliography.
