The Building Enclosure Workshop will demonstrate the value of energy modeling to architects and owners through case studies and cost-payback analysis, provide an update on LEED® v4 energy criteria and educate participants on the envelope commissioning process and benefits. Local experts will present real examples of how early building enclosure decisions lead to lower heating and cooling loads, increased comfort, opportunities to downsize HVAC, first cost savings and equipment replacement cost savings. The program will also provide an update on Arlington County’s Green Building incentives program.
