Perform or Prescribe: The Great Debate In Building Exterior Design
Presented by the AIA|LA Building Performance & Regulations Committee

Join AIA Los Angeles’ dynamic Building Performance and Regulations team for the second session of a year long conversation on new energy codes and their effect on building systems and envelope design. This session will start with understanding the difference between prescriptive and performance design approaches in the context of meeting code and increasing building sustainability. Listen to Glumac’s experts interpret the evolving codes and their real-world effects on building design. Expand the conversation with your own expertise in a “salon” format conversation that will share our common expertise to advance design in Los Angeles.

Learning Objectives:
+ Explain the difference between prescriptive and performance-based criteria for building energy performance and which is right for your project/design
+  Compare current and anticipated changes in the energy code and how these changes may affect the building envelope and MEP design
+  Learn how code compares to LEED and AIA 2030
+ Learn how to balance energy goals with design goals

SPEAKERS:

Michael J. AdamsAssociate / Regional Energy Director, Glumac

Kyle Hack, P.E.Mechanical Engineer, Glumac

SPEAKERS:

Michael J. AdamsAssociate / Regional Energy Director, Glumac

As Lead Energy Consultant, Michael manages a team dedicated to modeling building energy performance. Their primary goal is to not only meet but to surpass the stringent criteria established by building rating systems, state energy codes, federal building guidelines, and relevant incentive programs while being cost-effective and meeting project goals. With an eight-year background in sustainable design and construction, Michael is an invaluable asset when it comes to energy and water efficiency in the built environment while having a thorough understanding of relevant building codes and requirements. He is deeply engaged throughout the design process, proposing, analyzing, and vetting sound recommendations for cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions tailored to each client’s unique needs.

MODERATOR & COMMITTEE CO-CHAIR:

Mark Oberholzer, AIA, LEED AP – Principal, KTGY & C0-Chair, AIA|LA Building Performance & Regulations Committee

 

Context is everything. In cities like Los Angeles, context includes not just existing buildings and neighborhoods, but an emerging sense of urban identity and possibility. Mark Oberholzer’s strength is engaging with the context of client goals, zoning complexity, urban design, stakeholder influences, economic imperatives and design integrity to tease out extraordinary architectural solutions.

Over the last five years, Mark has been at the forefront of KTGY’s expertise in innovative construction techniques – harnessing the design possibilities of modular construction, bearing steel stud systems, and heavy timber. Mark sees construction technology as another part of the context of design, bringing a conviction that collaboration, imagination, hard work, and a sense of humor are the best tools for reaching the goal of better design.

COMMITTEE CO-CHAIR:

LISA CANOY, AIA, NCARBSR ASSOCIATE & PROJECT MANAGER, AC MARTIN

Lisa Canoy, AIA, NCARB is a licensed architect with a wide range of skills and abilities. With over a decade of professional experience, Lisa Canoy brings valuable knowledge across all phases of design and all varieties of scope, as both project manager and project architect. Her portfolio consists largely of educational work and includes ground-up construction projects, multi-phased construction projects, existing renovations, and comprehensive modernizations, ranging in size from 2,000 to 200,000 square feet. Her experience spans various delivery methods (including design-build and CM@R), AHJs (including DSA and OFS), and clients (including LA Unified, the CSU System, and the UC System).
