The American Institute of Architects presents a live course that will demonstrate a “no-regrets”, step-by-step approach to making old buildings perform like new.  As a glimpse into the book The Power of Existing Buildings, we will talk about the importance of setting clear, performance-based goals, building the right team, and incorporating important technology like modeling and rapid-fire simulations to ensure design goals are achieved during operations.  We will explain how “major system replacement” is the ideal time to determine what your building’s theoretical, optimum performance is before spending one dollar on retrofits.  As an added bonus, you will learn how to invest in existing buildings to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce fuel poverty and reduce the inequities of indoor air quality.

Craig Stevenson and Beth Eckenrode will present along with Katharine Logan, who is the principle author of AIA’s Renovate, Retrofit, Reuse: Uncovering the hidden value in America’s existing building stock.
