Session Description: After designing for maximum passive use of site resources and mitigating energy loads, the next step to a breakthrough building is properly sized equipment and employment of advanced controls. This session will explore the concept and application of designing and specifying equipment and controls for buildings that need mechanical intervention only during periods of peak demand. Systems such as hybrid natural-mechanical ventilation systems and other approaches to engineering a mechanical system to be as small (efficient) and effective as possible will be explored.

AIA+2030 Learning Objectives

  • Apply right-sizing after passive energy conservation strategies.
  • Utilize controls to optimize the efficiency of equipment.
  • Enumerate energy efficient strategies to maintain occupant comfort.
