This presentation explores the new ASHRAE building, located within Technology Park in Peachtree Corners, a 1970’s era, 66,000 square foot building that is being remodeled into a high-efficient, net-zero-ready facility to become ASHRAE’s worldwide headquarters. During the course of the design of the project, the design team encountered many envelope and system challenges involving the remodel of an older building and the effort to renovate it to meet the requirements of current ASHRAE 90.1 energy goals. This presentation focuses on those challenges.
• Understand challenges associated with renovating an older building to achieve aggressive energy targets required by the building owner.
• Have a greater understanding of the requirements of the new ASHRAE Net-Zero Energy Design Guide for Office Buildings.
• Understand requirements of a building envelope to meet window-to-wall ratio requirements of ASHRAE 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
