Innovation, Sustainability, and Historic Preservation: Modernizing GSA's First LEED Platinum Net Zero Energy Courthouse

AIA Cleveland Committee on the Environment (COTE) presents:


Innovation, Sustainability, and Historic Preservation:
Modernizing GSA's First LEED Platinum Net Zero Energy Courthouse


Roger Chang, PE, LEED Fellow, will present design insights from DLR
Group/Westlake Reed Leskosky’s renovation of the 1918 Wayne N. Aspinall Federal
Building and U.S. Courthouse in Grand Junction, CO. This project recently won the
architecture Honor Award, the highest award granted, at the 2018 AIA Cleveland
Design Awards. It also won an AIA COTE Top Ten Award in 2014.
This session will provide an overview of net zero energy building design definitions
and considerations for modernization or adaptive reuse of existing structures for
high energy performance and indoor environmental quality. The session will
include a discussion of the integration of design-build procurement, building
analysis, commissioning, and post-occupancy monitoring for projects seeking net
zero energy certification.
Roger Chang, PE, LEED Fellow, is a Principal and Energy & Engineering Leader in the
Washington, DC, office of DLR Group | Westlake Reed Leskosky, a national
integrated design firm.
Learning objectives:
 The session will explore the formal definitions for net zero energy and
carbon, as applied to a single building modernization.
 The session will examine an approach for evaluating and executing design
features that target a 50% reduction in energy use from an average US
building.
 The session will consider how design-build contrasts to other project
delivery methods for high performance projects with qualitative and
quantitative performance indicators.
 The session will discuss how occupant behavior can be managed to support
energy goals, while balanced against productivity and indoor environmental
quality factors.
