This interactive virtual tour will feature a state-of-the-art Engineering Research Center Building at Brown University located in Providence, Rhode Island. Based on the project design, the anticipated energy usage illustrates approximately a 25.1% energy savings over the minimum energy code for new buildings.
- This project is one of the first institutional labs in the country delivered using the integrated project delivery (IPD) approach, a concept-to-construction model for building that incentivizes early and frequent collaboration between project owners, architects, engineers, and contractors.
- You will learn in this virtual tour how energy efficiency measures were incorporated into the building design.
- We will discuss how the high-performance building enclosure with improved thermal envelope and high efficiency glazing, high efficiency HVAC equipment, automatic lighting controls, reduced interior lighting power densities, etc.
- An overview of the Rhode Island code compliance enhancement incentive program, free technical support and circuit rider program will be discussed.
