    In-Depth Seminar 
    The Green Rehab Experiment: Testing Sustainable Redevelopment Strategies 

    This seminar will explore Washington University’s innovative Green Rehab Experiment. This multi-disciplinary applied research project aims to chart a path towards net-zero energy performance for 100-year-old, multi-family buildings within market constraints, while transforming the interiors to meet contemporary housing demands. Outcomes are measured through the comparison of control (standard specification) and experimental (high-performance) buildings with the goal of improving building and occupant performance.

    The project engaged interdisciplinary groups of students, faculty, researchers and allied professionals to  renovate Quadrangle Housing apartment buildings into comfortable, low-carbon student housing.

    Presenters Koster and Valko will explain the sustainable design strategies implemented, the procedures and tools used for monitoring, findings based upon the data that was collected, and policy implications for multi-family net zero energy building.

    SPEAKERS:

    February 25
    Benchmarking Jam

    Energy benchmarking is the process of measuring how much energy your building consumes, and comparing your energy performance to similar buildings. Benchmarking is the first step toward saving energy and money!

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online, interactive energy management tool that allows you to measure and track your building’s energy and water consumption, identify investment priorities, and verify improvements over time.

    Get hands-on assistance using the free, online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool at the February 25 Benchmarking Jam! All buildings benefit from benchmarking: businesses, schools, congregations, non-profits and local governments are encouraged to attend.

    In order for this event to be a success, each building representative should bring:
    • Laptop or Tablet
    • The building street address, year built, and contact information.
    • 12 consecutive months of utility bills for all fuel types used in the building.  You will need the number of units of each energy type used, not just the dollar amount of the utility fee. Attendees that register by February 17 can receive assistance collecting this data from Ameren Missouri & Laclede Gas. 
    • Additional required information varies by property type, see list below.

    Continuing Education Blitz 
    LEED v4

    Join USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter for a full-day Continuing Education Blitz focused on LEED v4!

    LEED v4 raises the bar – as LEED was designed to do with every update, guiding the market towards more environmentally sustainable strategies and decisions, and responding to continuous advances in technology. But this time, the bar is a lot higher. LEED v4 changes the way project teams think, integrate, plan, execute, and operate their buildings.

    From new credit categories (Integrated Design and Location and Linkages) to new prerequisites (Construction & Demolition Waste plan, Water Use, and Building Level Energy Metering) to increased performance benchmarks, it will be more difficult to achieve certification using LEEDv4 and it will require more intentional planning and a truly integrated project team.

    LEED v4 will have the biggest impact on CO2 emissions of any rating system developed by USGBC and it takes an unprecedented stand on human health. In particular, energy performance minimums have significantly increased. And the materials credits have been completely overhauled with a focus on transparency and life cycle analysis.

    LEED users have the option to register projects under the LEED 2009 rating system until October 31, 2016. Beginning November 1, 2016, all projects must be registered under LEED v4.

    USGBC-MGC’s March 1st Continuing Education Blitz is a great opportunity to prepare for the shift to LEED v4!

    Steps Toward Achieving Advanced Energy Performance in Existing Buildings

    IN PARTNERSHIP WITH: ASHRAE

    The Existing Buildings comprise 98% of the building stock globally and are the primary reason that the CBECS Energy Utilization Indices (EUIs) have been steadily increasing since 1999. 

    This presentation will present a comprehensive step-wise sequence for achieving various levels of increased energy efficiency from an existing building’s current EUI situation to a 15% or 30% improvement, to bringing the building to the level of energy efficiency up to the current 90.1 Standard requirements to an ultimate energy savings target of achieving a 30% increased energy efficiency over 90.1. 

    Economic scenarios and business-case based examples will be presented for these various energy savings levels as well as detailed explanation of how the technical retro-commissioning process should be used to develop both short-term and long-term strategies in achieving the sought energy savings levels.

    SPEAKERS

    In-Depth Seminar 
    Energy Goals and Integrated Design

    IN PARTNERSHIP WITH: ASHRAE

    The realm of energy conservation, energy targets and high performance, sustainable buildings is presented in a succinct sequence for both architects and engineers. The basis for the presentation is how to implement an integrated design approach that achieves the energy and performance goals of an owner.

    Materials presented includes ASHRAE’s Energy Targets for Building Codes, ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient program, Building Systems’ Commissioning, successful applications of the design guidance provided in ASHRAE’s Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDGs) for 30% and 50% savings over Building Code requirements, and how an integrated design approach is the vehicle by which “Net-Zero” energy facilities will be achieved.

    True “Net-Zero” applications, both nationally and internationally, will be presented along with the required ‘Technology Pathways’ for achieving Zero Energy and Beyond Buildings.

    In-Depth Seminar 
    Evaluating Healthy Building Design 

    This seminar will examine findings from a year-long evaluation of residents of Hillman Hall, a new on-campus building at Washington University specifically designed to be “healthy.”

    Presenter Amy Eyler and her colleagues used accelerometry, observations, and surveys to study the effect of Hillman’s innovative features—including abundant stairs, standing desks, and natural lighting—on the people who regularly work there. Effective strategies for creating healthy workspaces and how to evaluate and improve your own buildings will be discussed. 


    SPEAKER: Amy A. Eyler, Assistant Dean for Public Health; Assistant Professor, Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis.  Amy has a PhD in Public Health and is a Certified Health Education Specialist. Her research career has focused on worksite health, physical activity, and chronic disease prevention.
