    Lessons from Design to Post Occupancy of a K-12 School

    If you missed GreenBuild in 2014, now's your chance to hear and see one of the top-notch sessions that was recorded.  This is an extremely valuable FREE resource to chapter members, and only $25 for non-members.

    School in New Orleans was one of the first five Quick Start schools that was rebuilt under the LEED for Schools after Hurricane Katrina.  It received LEED for Schools Gold certification in 2010, exceeding the school district's 30% energy efficiency goal against ASHRAE 90.1-2004.  After occupancy, a third-party consultant was brought in to look into the building's energy performance.  It turned out that the building's performance was far off of predictions.  After spending three years on analysis and occupancy training, several operating conditions were corrected, and now the energy performance is in a reasonable range.  The presentations will share what the designer and the verifier learned through this long process.  Although the presentation uses one project case located in New Orleans, designers, building owners, facility managers, commissioning engineers, and others from various regions and building types will be able to gain the lessons and improve their own projects.

    Learning Objective:

    • Describe major and often-overlooked components affecting post-occupancy building performance
    • Determine roles of project team stakeholders to achieve successful building performance
    • Plan future projects with proper team members, budget, and process to identify and correct possible energy-related issues
    • Develop a better M&V action plan and retro-commissioning plan by understanding possible mistakes and the best opportunities for success

    Presenters:

    Joe Ryan, Sr. Building Engineer, Green Coast Enterprises, New Orleans, Louisiana

    Bae-Won Koh, AIA, USGBC Faculty, LEED AP BD+C, Principal, Director of Design, Innovative Design, Inc., Raleigh, North Carolina

    Tiffany D. Delcour, MSPH, Executive Director for Facility Strategy, Recovery School District of Louisiana, New Orleans, Louisiana

    This session is approved for 1 hour of LEED Specific (BD+C, O+M) GBCI hours.

    Location: Auld & White Constructors, 4168 Southpoint Parkway, Jacksonville, FL 32216
