NREL - Integrating Measurable Energy Efficiency Performance Specifications Into Design-Build Acquisition and Delivery

NREL - Integrating Measurable Energy Efficiency Performance Specifications Into Design-Build Acquisition and Delivery

Course Title: Integrating Measurable Energy Efficiency Performance Specifications Into Design-Build Acquisition and Delivery Course Presenters: Paul Torcellini & Shanti Pless Course Length: 3 Modules / 2.5 hours Course Credit Hours: 2.5 Hours Course Overview: Through a series of new construction projects at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and ongoing collaborations between NREL and industry, it has been shown that highly energy-efficient buildings can be procured within typical construction budgets. Success stories include NREL’s Research Support Facility (RSF), Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), and Parking Structure. An energy efficiency goal was the foundation for each project. A goal, though, is not sufficient for success. An acquisition strategy that incentivizes an innovative design and construction team to meet the energy goal in design and operations is also critical. Using a well-planned process, owners can be confident that their projects will have system-integrated, cost-effective efficiency strategies and renewable technologies that perform as predicted. Specifically, this course investigates why aggressive energy efficiency is a necessary and achievable goal for commercial buildings. It considers goal setting and how the form of an energy goal can influence the result. The course looks at the NREL new construction examples, which used maximum energy use targets and subsystem energy criteria; lessons learned and best practices from these case studies are shared. Lastly, general steps are given to assist owners in designing and facilitating an energy-focused process for their construction projects. Learning Objectives: Define the most important attributes of an acquisition process that will ensure aggressive energy performance Understand how to define whole building and subsystem energy goals Write draft contract language that will help balance cost and energy performance Integrate measurable energy use requirements into the design-build delivery process Attachments: Module 1 Handouts Module 2 Handouts Module 3 Handouts Presenter Bio: Paul Torcellini Presenter Bio: Shanti Pless

High Performance Incentive Contracting

High Performance Incentive Contracting

Course Title: High Performance Incentive Contracting Course Presenters: Diana R. Hoag & Matthew B. Ellis Course Length: 5 Modules / 3.25 Hours Course Credit Hours: 4 Hours Course Overview: Design-build project delivery proves more than any other method that “ordinary people can do extraordinary things.” Writing contracts that are successful at effectively motivating people, however, is central to making this happen. Successful motivation requires a well-written contract that provides appropriate awards and incentives. In traditional design-bid-build, contracts often contemplate only failure, with provisions and clauses that address what the adverse consequences will be once failure occurs. This presumption of failure results in contracts that do not contemplate how the contracting parties might appropriately reward one another for success and excellent performance. The most powerful design-build contracts, on the other hand, are written to include things such as award fees and incentives to promote cooperation, teamwork and collaboration. Combined with the effective use of performance requirements, these “aspirational contracts” help the contracting parties to achieve extraordinary success. At the end of this course attendees will be able to: Describe the basic structure of a design-build contract Define and delineate between award fees and incentives Describe the mechanics of incentive and award fee arrangements Identify various clauses and checklists used in incentive contracting Attachments: HP Contracting-Module 1 (handouts) HP Contracting-Module 2 (handouts) HP Contracting-Module 3 (handouts) HP Contracting-Module 4 (handouts) HP Contracting-Module 5 (handouts) Diana R.
