We are thrilled to announce that David Park, Ph.D, PE, CEM, BEMP and Hailee Hammerquist, LEED Green Associate will be speaking at the upcoming Association for Learning Environments "InspirED" conference!

As our world becomes more and more conscious of sustainability, it is crucial to examine the impact of our buildings and spaces on energy consumption. Join David and Hailee as they delve into the realm of energy analysis and modeling in educational environments and explore innovative solutions that can make a significant difference.

During the session, they will explore the latest advancements in energy analysis techniques, discuss cutting-edge modeling tools, and dive into impactful case studies showcasing successful energy optimization projects. Whether you're an architect, educator, facilities manager, or industry professional, this session will provide valuable insights into creating energy-efficient spaces. The key takeaways from the session include:

  • Building energy modeling is a crucial tool in achieving energy efficiency in buildings, but it has limitations that need to be understood and addressed.
  • Breaking barriers in equity and diversity is important in the building industry to create a more inclusive workforce, provide access to training and education opportunities, and ensure that the benefits of sustainable building design are equitably distributed.
  • Linking buildings to place is essential in sustainable building design, as it considers local climate, topography, and cultural context to create buildings that are more energy-efficient, comfortable, and meaningful to their occupants.
  • Community engagement is vital in sustainable building design, as it helps identify the unique needs and preferences of occupants, informs decision-making, and creates buildings that meet the needs of the community while achieving optimal energy performance.

Join us as we pave the way for a greener and more sustainable future!
