Designing office buildings in a post-COVID world is a challenging task with engineering variables; building automation and controls come into play
Four Arup experts weigh in on the cultural, social, and commercial forces that help higher-ed institutions drive ambitious sustainability goals.
Consulting-Specifying Engineer knows the answer: Information about COVID-19 and codes and standards
Designing office buildings in a post-COVID world is a challenging task with engineering variables and energy efficiency goals
ASHRAE Standard 90.1 defines how engineers should design buildings to achieve energy efficiency goals
ASHRAE Standard 90.1 is the backbone of commercial building energy modeling and code compliance efforts so it is essential to consider in relation to net zero carbon buildings
Development and operation of the combined heat and power district heating system in Jamestown, N.Y., provides energy efficiency, environmental and economic development benefits to customers
Energy storage must be embraced as part of energy policy, and captured in standards such as ASHRAE 90.1 to maximize the environmental and resiliency benefits of increased renewable energy production
The ability of critical systems to anticipate, resist, respond, adapt, and recover from a failure or disturbance – from natural disasters to intentional attacks to human error – can have huge consequences, and owners of critical facilities are adding formal resiliency plans to their risk management.
An energy assessment is the first step toward improving the overall health and optimizing the energy performance of your facility.
