Wednesday, September 03, 2014 3:30:00 PM

ASHRAE 90.1 2007 vs 2010

The imminent launch of LEED V 4 will bring a infrequently-used energy standard to the forefront, ASHRAE 90.1-2010. What's the big deal about this?This session will delve into the details of the differences between ASHRAE 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010. It will also provide the differences in savings between these two standards through the use of case studies.

Learning Objectives:

Compare ASHRAE 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 to understand the differences between the two standards with respect to envelope, HVAC, and lighting considerations

Describe the impact on energy savings when using ASHRAE 90.1-2010 as a baseline instead of ASHRAE 90.1-2007

Identify the differing energy savings impacts between varying building types, through the use of case studies, for application in building design

COTE: Denver 2030 District
Thursday, September 25, 2014 12:00:00 PM

Join AIA Denver on Thursday, Sept. 25, from noon - 1 p.m., for a presentation about the Denver 2030 District presented by the Committee on the Environment (COTE). The program will be held at the AIA Colorado Office (303 E. 17th Ave., Ste. 110, Denver, CO 80203).

Commercial buildings consume 42% of all energy and 72% of all electricity generated in the United States. To date, numerous efficiency initiatives such as LEED, Green Globes, Living Building Challenge, and Watts to Water have made tremendous strides in reducing resource consumption in commercial buildings, though these improvements have been on a building-by-building basis and often focused on newer, higher performing buildings.

This presentation will focus on the role that high performance building districts, such as the Denver 2030 District, can play in creating significant energy, water, and transportation-related efficiency improvements in commercials buildings while simultaneously acting as an economic development engine. With over 17M SF committed to achieving the goals of the Denver 2030 District, this newest district is changing the way Denver addresses high performance buildings.

Attendees can earn 1.0 HSW AIA continuing education learning unit (LU). Under the state of Colorado’s rules for continuing education for state licensure renewal, this program should meet the requirements for 1.0 HSW CEH.

This program is free for all AIA Colorado members; however, attendees must bring their own lunch (BYOL).

USDOT's West Central Small Business Transportation Resource Center (SBTRC) assists small disadvantaged businesses in building their capacity to bid on and perform on transportation projects and professional service procurements. 

The City and County of Denver, Denver International Airport and Denver Public Schools are teaming up to conduct a free Bonding Education Program (BEP) in Denver. This class, developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation, is tailored to minority- and women-owned businesses competing for construction-related contracts.

Participation is free to those businesses that qualify but business must pre-register to attend.

Becoming bondable is a challenge for many small businesses and this program aims to help businesses grow by obtaining or building bonding capacity. Bondability is key to growing a construction business.

The BEP consists of a comprehensive set of workshops designed to address what a business needs to do to become bond-ready, as well as one-on-one sessions with local surety bonding professionals to help you assemble the materials needed for a complete bond application.

For registration, contact Curt Olson at 303.800.3733 or curto@westcentralsbtrc.com. Space is limited and a completed application is required.
