{Past Event} - Green Design & Construction Series: Regulatory Impact on Healthcare Greening

April 27, 2011 - 1:30 pm - April 27, 2011 - 1:30 pm -- Eastern Standard Time


The 90.1-2010 Energy Standard for Buildings is the most significant revision to the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES energy standard since its inception. Buildings that comply with the 2010 edition will use approximately 25% less energy than the same buildings built to the 2004 standard. This seminar will teach you why 90.1-2010 is important to your projects, how it is enforced, what the major revisions are, when you are likely to feel its impact, why it conserves more energy than other energy codes, and how to comply without breaking the budget. 90.1-2010 includes significant revisions to the building envelope (including passive solar requirements), mechanical, and lighting requirements that will affect architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners.
