Mid-Century buildings are commonplace on campuses across the nation, yet many are energy hogs, far from code-compliant, and are hardly conducive to 21st century learning. As these buildings continue to age, how should we approach treating these shortcomings? Are they worth saving at all?
This webinar will provide a best practices approach, post-occupancy evaluation, and where do we go from here with new Deep Energy Retrofit directives while weaving in case studies from various projects.
Science IV, a textbook example of a mid-century building on Binghamton University’s campus, has become a test bed for this type of questioning and evaluation. Undertaken in two phases, the team will walk through an analysis of its transformation, focusing especially on energy performance and user experience.
Take a dive into the design strategies for Deep Energy Retrofit at Science IV and look at the energy outcomes a year after completion. What was the return on investment? What were the successes and opportunities missed? How do these lessons impact approaches to future mid-century renovation projects?
