Building Science: an Introduction – Steven Winter, FAIA
Building Science know-how is an important tool in an architect’s arsenal, whether the architect uses it for design, research, or teaching, and whether or not the architect applies that know-how from his/her company’s personnel or from consultants. Winter will describe the array of building science subjects about which architects might benefit from more information.

Whole Building Optimization – Srikanth Puttagunta
Certification programs, such as ENERGY STAR Qualified New Homes v3.0, try to provide a complete system to ensure optimal efficiency, comfort, and durability for new homes. The intent is to minimize the total cost of ownership (initial construction, monthly utility, and annual maintenance costs) by eliminating operational, mechanical, and technological inefficiencies. Performing a thorough building optimization during the initial design stages of a project allows for a more integrated, whole-building approach, but the key to success is how effectively these strategies are implemented from design through construction. It takes commitment and coordination between all parties, including the architect, builder, HVAC contractor, plumber, and electrician, with a third-party verifier, as there are always things that are missed. This segment includes a case study for a home built in Old Greenwich.

ENERGY STAR for Homes, Version 3.0 and ENERGY STAR for Multifamily High Rise (MFHR), Version 1.0 – Gayathri Vijayakumar will discuss Qualification program processes, standards, verification and documentation requirements, for multifamily residential developments ranging from duplexes to high-rise apartment buildings.

Building Science: Concluding Remarks – Steven Winter
Winter will conclude the Building Science series by describing resources and follow-on activities that architects might pursue to delve further into the subject. This segment includes discussion of incentives and rebates in Connecticut and New York.
