The upcoming 2014 Laboratory Design Conference will feature two Payette speakers, discussing The Integration of Energy Efficiency Strategies in Lab Design
Many energy efficiency strategies are often viewed in isolation, not allowing projects to realize their full potential. This includes items such as the integration of a high performance envelope with exterior shading as part of the cooling system to decrease the size of equipment needed; decoupling the heating and cooling loads from the ventilation with a radiant system; integration of an ambient and task lighting scheme. These symbiotic relationships save costs, and can allow a lab to fit into the tighter floor-to-floor height of an existing building. The integration of synergistic strategies will arrive at a better performing, more cost-effective building.
This session will:
- Identify lab energy strategies
- Discuss integrated design
- Present offset added costs of energy strategies
- Present a process for cost effective, high performance research
