This invitation-only Summit, hosted by
the National Institute of Building Sciences and the New Buildings Institute and sponsored by the International Association of Lighting Designers, the
Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, and The American Institute of Architects,
will bring together a limited number of experts and key stakeholders to
identify the challenges and develop potential solutions for implementing
outcome-based approaches to design, construction and operations. The issues, approaches, and solutions identified
in this Summit are likely to have significant influence on how the industry
addresses these challenges moving forward.
The focus on achieving desired
performance goals, particularly for energy use, through outcome-based
requirements is growing. Given the numerous factors that influence actual
performance (design, operations, climate, occupancy, etc.) and the traditional
delivery pathways, important questions have been raised about how to address
anticipated changes from the current contractual system and design and
construction process. With a proposed Outcome-Based Pathway being considered
within the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), the U.S. General
Services Administration pursuing performance-based contracts, and other related
efforts, the time has come to address these issues.
This working meeting will address the following objectives:

challenges, risks, and impacts of outcome-based building
performance requirements on conventional building design and delivery
- Understand relevant motivations of owners,
developers, institutions and design teams in relation to outcome-based
- Explore new and developing strategies for
managing shared performance responsibilities, achieving on-going building
performance, and developing appropriate contractual relationships and
incentives to achieve performance outcomes.
strategies and a framework for addressing key issues that will impact the
design and development community, including near- and mid-term actions, as
efforts to incorporate building performance outcomes become more common.
