AIALA Committee: Building Performance & Regulations

CES Learning Units: 1.5 LU/HSW

As the urgency to address climate change and halt greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) continues to grow, designers have a responsibility to make smart design decisions to minimize their buildings’ GHG emissions. The steps to designing a carbon-smart building are two-fold: minimize embodied carbon and bring operational carbon to zero. This session will look at the holistic carbon profile of the built environment and the cutting-edge tools and processes that design teams can use to design carbon out of their projects.


Shruti Kasareka, LEED AP – Associate Director, Atelier Ten
Shruti combines technical expertise and creativity across multiple disciplines – architecture, engineering and master planning – to develop integrated, cross disciplinary solutions for projects. She has worked on a variety of ambitious projects including the LEED Platinum UCLA Geffen Hall to the the new LEED and WELL Gold Uber Headquarters in San Francisco. Shruti holds a M.S. in Building Sciences from Arizona State University and a B.Arch from Pune University in India.

Learning Objectives:
+ Participants will understand the relationship between embodied and operational GHG emissions, and the design process for reducing each.
+ Participants will learn how to incorporate smart embodied carbon design strategies at critical project milestones using specific types of analysis.
+ Participants will learn how to use hourly GHG emissions data vs a single annual value in predicting GHG emissions and reductions.
+ Participants will learn how to apply the methodologies and processes for reducing embodied and operational GHG emissions to their own design work and/or energy analysis practice.
