Pushing the Glass Envelope: A BERDO 2.0 Compliance Pathway for a High Performance Building

This session offers a case study of a curtainwall building in which the project team collaborated on an iterative energy modeling and design process to achieve aggressive energy reduction goals. Our panel will share insight on the process that led to significant energy and carbon reductions, predictive versus post occupancy usage data, and how this building will adapt to BERDO 2.0 and future energy and resilience considerations – a challenge facing recently constructed buildings that will need to decarbonize in the near future in Boston.

Event Time: 

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Room / Location:
Harbor 3

CEU Information: 

Approved for 1 credit hour toward AIA (LU), BOC, GBCI (BD+C), and NARI certification. Credit is offered for each full conference day toward MA CSL, PHI, Phius, and RESNET certification.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize how to create opportunities for creating an innovative and resilient building design from aggressive performance goals
  • Organize an integrative design process that engages owners and tenants in a collaborative and iterative process of optimizing high performance solutions and opens the door for post-occupancy conversations about performance
  • Evaluate predictive energy models, data, and assess future opportunities to improve performance and meet future code requirements
  • Understand challenges facing recently opened new buildings that will need to decarbonize in the near future and meet BERDO 2.0
