While a Trump presidency in the United States potentially threatens the shared goals of the Paris Climate Conference agreements, architects and MEP engineers today have increasingly sophisticated tools and techniques to continue to save building energy consumption—like Smart BIM layouts and Smart HVAC products.
Viewpoint: Sustainability and Boards—Why Linking Significant Audiences and Materiality Matter to Long-Term Success
7 out of 10 S&P 500 corporations are reporting on “sustainability” showing significant new focus on environmental concerns. Can linking a Statement on Significant Audiences and Materiality move all major global corporations beyond short-term investor concerns for real, longer-term success and planetary benefits?
Will the AEC industry respond with the zest and positivity required to capitalize on a landmark agreement for climate change? What does the AIA (American Institute of Architects) say about the landmark agreement in the Paris Climate Conference?
Do you aim to get your building and construction project Silver, Gold or Platinum LEED, in 2015-2016? If yes, then the minimum energy consumption is a prerequisite. In this Viewpoint AEC industry expert Bhushan Avsatthi explains LEED and energy modeling analysis.
Industries like aviation, hotel and hospitality, residential, healthcare and retail, seek sustainable building designs. However, what architects and engineers need to understand is that occupant comfort should not be compromised.
Buildings are the primary energy guzzlers and account for nearly 40% of energy consumption globally. However, the scenario will soon change, as there is growing awareness of sustainability amongst the architects, engineers, developers, owners and the AEC industry in general.
It is the responsibility of every home owner, developer, architect, and engineer to develop energy efficient buildings and hence contribute towards the crucial cause of safeguarding the energy resources that are going extinct. The NZEB wave has the potential to transform the AEC industry and make buildings self-reliant for their energy requirements.
Sustainable Building Practices with Energy Saving Models – Epact 179D Tax Savings for Daylight Harvesting
Architosh is again pleased to share another informative Viewpoint article from BIM consultant and expert Bhushan Avsatthi, who briefly discusses the often unacknowledged US tax breaks under the EPAct 179D tax savings for buildings that achieve energy cost reductions more than the range specified by ASHRE energy standards. Mr. Avsatthi discusses the importance of “daylight harvesting” as a technology and technique for added energy savings measures.
Architosh is again pleased to share another viewpoint article by BIM consultant Bhushan Avsatthi, who offers his perspective on all things technical in the AEC industry and ask the question: have AEC pros really embraced technology? The rhetorical question serves to form a 35,000 feet view into the present and emerging technology of AEC.
Architosh is happy to publish this viewpoint article by BIM consultant Bhushan Avsatthi who offers information and advice about the benefits of 4D BIM, mentioning the techniques and methods of Construction Scheduling. Today’s software market is filled with software tools addressing this segment of the BIM pipeline.
