8:00 – 9:00 am ENERGY STAR V3: LEED FOR HOMES SUSTAINABILITY VALUE PROPOSITION:
Energy Star and LEED are helping to change the way we design, build, and operate better buildings. With energy costs likely to continue rising in the future, these programs will be talked about even more often. However, do you know what these programs are all about? Where they came from, who they’re targeting, how they’re similar, and how they’re different?
Presenters: Brian Stanfill, Operations Manager-New Construction and Mike Fairall, LEED AP Homes, LEED Green Rater, both of MaGrann Associates
9:30 – 10:30 am INTRODUCING ENERGY STAR FOR MULTIFAMILY HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS:
Discussion of the eligibility and program requirements for high-rise multi-family building type and compare them to those of low rise multifamily buildings which are eligible to participate through the ENERGY STAR Certified Homes program. Review how to participate in the multifamily high rise program and what those requirements are, as compared to the Certified Homes Program. Finally, we will review some quick case studies and take a bird’s eye view of ENERGY STAR MFHR activity in the nation.
