Earlier in 2011, GD&C offered a webinar on the Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for small hospitals. Scaling up to larger hospitals is an important area of inquiry, and guidance document development is underway. This webinar will describe the forthcoming 50% savings AEDG, especially applicable for large hospitals. The presentation includes coverage of the main sections of the AEDG, reviews the design strategies for 50% savings, as well as presents the modeling results and case studies demonstrating what it takes to reach this aggressive level of energy savings.

Heather Burpee, University of Washington Integrated Design Lab

Heather Burpee works at the University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab, Ms. Burpee has established thorough research on energy efficiency of hospitals working with leading architects, mechanical engineers, and owners to establish goals to radically reduce energy consumption in this building typology, while maintaining high quality healing and work environments. Energy goals strive to reach the 2030 Challenge through team interaction, systems design, research and long-term data collection.  Emphasis on high quality work and healing environments includes attention to daylighting, lighting, view, and ventilation.  This work bridges practice, research, and education with collaboration between practitioners, faculty, and students.
