Sustainable Building Operation via ASHRAE Standard 189.1 

Doug Zentz

February Meeting

Sustainable Building Operation via ASHRAE Standard 189.1

 This ASHRAE standard was developed in coordination with USBGC and IESNA for the purpose of creating a code ready standard that addresses the overall building performance needs in establishing a minimum level of acceptance as to what is a “GREEN” building. ASHRAE Standard 189.1 incorporates ASHRAE Standards 62.1, 55, and 90.1 (all current versions) and the platform of LEED to develop code language explanations for all areas of a Green Building and what the building owner can expect for building performance. The presentation will address the following in reference to ASHRAE 189.1; (a) Why have it?, (b) Relationship to Other ASHRAE Standards, and (c) What is in the Standard. The content of the details of the standard will be covered in a general context (due to time) as it will outline the areas of the standard, show Mandatory elements within each area of the standard, and then illustrate the two paths of compliance (prescriptive and performance) for each area of the standard.
