How designers can curb risk with performance-based modeling

Today’s design professionals are under added pressure and commitments to provide solutions that address a multitude of factors including environmental stewardship, carbon reduction and occupant health. In order to tackle design problems, design professionals will increasingly need to rely on energy modeling to support proposed design strategies, as well as assessing and lessening micro and macro level risk factors.  Performance-based modeling, when structured appropriately, offers immense client value that extends well beyond the estimation of energy reduction.

Building energy modeling expert Eric McDaniel will discuss and explore the importance of performance-based analytics, and how when used effectively, it can lower construction costs, improve occupant thermal and visual comfort, and assist in reducing the effects of carbon emissions.

Register today to secure your spot for February 20.
