WEBINAR: Brown University Lindemann Performing Arts Center Virtual Tour
Wed December 6 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by CLEAResult
Course Description: This interactive virtual tour, sponsored by Rhode Island Energy, hosted by CLEAResult, and presented by Stephen Turner Inc., will feature the newly constructed Lindemann Performing Arts Center at Brown University located in Providence, Rhode Island. This six-story, 101,000 sf major performance space serves as a hub for music, dance, theater, and multimedia arts on the University’s campus. This virtual tour will highlight the main performance hall and smaller performance and rehearsal hall spaces, as well as the high-performance building features. The project was built to meet the requirements of the State Energy Code (SBC-8-2013). Using the performance compliance path, the baseline building, and proposed building energy modeling results were compared to project an estimated annual energy savings, which will be a focus of the virtual tour
The training will cover how the required energy code taken together with the mechanical code benefit public health safety and welfare in commercial buildings. These standards help to ensure safe air quality for occupants. Visual acuity and acoustics are critical, and thermal comfort and ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality must accommodate sudden and wide changes in occupancy. The systems controls to meet these needs are addressed in the virtual tour.
- Learn about the current commercial code versions, energy code background and energy code compliance pathways.
- We will discuss how the building was built to meet the requirements of the State Energy Code (SBC-8-2013), which references the 2012 version of the International Energy Conservation Code (2012 IECC) with RI Amendments – the code in effect at the time of permitting.
- During the virtual tour we will view the energy efficiency measures that were incorporated into the project design such as the HVAC equipment, lighting and lighting controls systems, and the high-performance building envelope.
- overview of the Rhode Island Energy Code Technical Support Initiative and Free Energy Code Technical Support will be given.
