Everybody loves an Underdog! Those of us practicing in the Central Standard Time (CST) Zone often feel like the underdog compared to our coast counterparts. Whether it's cheap energy costs, debilitating solar/utility policies, equity/budget gaps, or simply misaligned perceptions, we are often the last to be asked for meaningful contributions on a global scale. We are giving voice to the underdogs by engaging a unique CST team with speakers from San Salvador, Memphis, and Little Rock. Our CST Underdogs intend to blow up your perceptions by showcasing award-winning innovative building projects they've benchmarked using Arc, the mistakes and wounds they experienced along the way, and their unique, aggressive, intelligent, and simple solutions. The interface of buildings and technology is an irreversible trend, and while high performing coast buildings introduce complex solutions, our CST Underdogs believe that Occam's Razor still holds and simple solutions do exist. Accordingly, learn from our architects and design team members about how to implement Arc for office benchmarking, LEED v4.1 O&M certification, new construction, net zero, and the value that this can provide to validate architectural design performance, connect underserved communities, provide competitive advantage, and improve the health of building occupants. Using live-polling technology, the presentation will engage the audience to contribute additional mistakes, potential solutions, and estimates of the impact of both.
Compare building benchmarking technology solutions per their impact on overall building sustainability, human wellness, and community equity.
Give examples of common mistakes in Arc data entry for LEED building performance: Energy, Water, Waste, Transportation, and Human Experience.
Analyze the effectiveness of different strategies to improve scores for LEED v4.1 O&M performance prerequisites.
Describe how Arc can be used to guide and measure new construction design toward a goal of LEED v4.1 O&M certification.
