Discover How to Evaluate Facility Performance, Resilience at Institute Symposium

Sep 25, 2014 -- Come take part in the Facility Performance and Sustainability Symposium: Setting the Foundation for Resilient Communities and find out how to evaluate and improve facility performance in communities before a disaster strikes. The Symposium will be held Thursday, January 8, 2015, 8:30 am – 5:30 pm, as part of Building Innovation 2015: The National Institute of Building Sciences Third Annual Conference and Expo.

The individual facilities that provide shelter; enable commerce; and house educational, cultural and community service organizations are all important parts of any community. Achieving community resilience starts with each individual facility. By making individual buildings that are sustainable and perform at a high level, communities are better able to withstand and recover from disruptive events. This full-day symposium will focus on how to identify and evaluate the appropriate level of facility performance to meet a building owner’s full range of objectives. Particular emphasis will be given to making commercial facilities energy-efficient and heading to zero-energy consumption, with a focus on the critical role that the building enclosure plays in reaching this goal. Creating resilient communities requires making a series of choices that start with the individual building owner—choices that this session will help owners to make in an informed way—following processes and procedures that lead to better buildings.

Presenters will establish the connection between performance, sustainability and resilience, and demonstrate how to establish performance-based design objectives and analyze results to support decision-making. Speakers will provide examples of systems, such as the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) new performance-based P100 Facilities Standards for the Public Buildings Service and the complementary National Performance-Based Design Guide. They will discuss how to perform deep energy retrofits to building enclosure systems, including defining and establishing measurable zero-energy consumption targets for buildings and communities; how effective envelope commissioning and establishing corresponding owner performance requirements leads to successful outcomes; how to evaluate and manage resilience as a performance metric; and, finally, how to use Total Cost of Ownership as the ultimate evaluator of efforts to improve facility performance, sustainability and resilience.

Attendees will leave with actionable information and procedures to improve facility performance, thereby leading to improved resilience and sustainability of the facilities they oversee and the communities in which they reside. The program will include a question and answer period for each topic. View the speaker list and session descriptions.
