ABOUT THE TOPIC:
Navigating Emerging Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) – Cost-optimizing performance through a building-envelope-first design approach
More and more jurisdictions are implementing Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) to help address the poor energy efficiency of buildings—a key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and overall energy consumption.
While some of these new standards may seem restrictive or simply adding costs, many in fact offer increased design flexibility. But to capitalize on the opportunity, it requires a change in design thinking.
This presentation explores a more comprehensive and integrated approach to envelope and fenestration energy performance, with a focus on ways to cost-optimize energy-efficiency at a whole-building scale.
Through a review of the BC Step Code & the Seattle Energy Code-2018, this presentation will demonstrate how a ‘building-envelope-first’ design approach can help meet emerging BEPS as well as offset costs associated with high-performance materials.
