The Department of Defense (DOD) published the High Performance Sustainable Building Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) on sustainability on March 1, 2013. The UFC pulls together all known federal criteria including the High Performance Sustainable Building Guiding Principles (GP), EISA 2005, EPACT 2005 and Executive Orders 13423 and 13514. This webinar will discuss the link between federal mandates, UFC 1-200-02, and sustainability assessment tools. It will also include descriptions and how to use five assessment tools: the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) GP assessment tool, the Green Building Institute’s (GBI) GP assessment tool, and Sustainability and Energy Record Cards for the Army, Navy and Air Force (AF). Presenters will describe how the record cards will be used throughout the life of the buildings and how that data collected will support the Annual Energy Management Report required by the Office of Management and Budget.

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

The new High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirement UFC (Course)

The new High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirement UFC (Course)

ORIGINALLY PRESENTED JUNE 27, 2013 Written by: Nadja Turek, P.E., LEED AP BD+C Paula J. Loomis, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, PMP Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs, 1.5 AIA LUs/ HSW Course Overview: In March of 2013 the new UFC 1-200-02 titled “High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements” was released. The UFC was developed by the Tri-service Sustainability Discipline Working Group (DWG) and will become the common standard for HPSB requirements across the services. The UFC provides minimum requirements and coordinating guidance for planning, designing, constructing, renovating and managing DoD facilities to meet sustainable design requirements, federal mandates, and reduce total cost of ownership for the military. Attendees will hear from a member of the DWG about the future use of the new UFC among the services in their facility O&M programs and design and construction programs. And you will also hear from an A/E practitioner about how the UFC will affect providing services and winning work for military clients. Attendees will gain an understanding of the technical content and requirements of the new UFC and how it differs from previous management and procurement practices. It also addresses sustainability practices that can and should be implemented across an installation. Come learn how the new UFC helps to unify and clarify the Services sustainable building requirements and programs. Learning Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will be able to identify appropriate application for and use of the new UFC 1-200-02 titled “High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements” when executing work for/with the military services At the end of this course, participants will be able to understand the technical requirements outlined in the new UFC At the end of this course, participants will be able to learn how the UFC applies to their own work with/for the military At the end of this course, participants will be able to understand commonalities and differences between the intended use of the UFC by the military services, and the services unique HPSB policies
