How do you reach and maintain high performance levels in buildings? Meeting the criteria for low-energy usage and the efficient use of resources required to build and maintain high performance in buildings—especially residential structures—can be confusing. The Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) SymposiumBeyond Green™: Guidance for Life-Cycle Performance, will address the confusing criteria and clarify the priorities for consideration when building and maintaining high-performance homes and other structures. The SBIC Symposium to be held Wednesday, January 8, 8:00 am -11:45 am, is part of Building Innovation 2014: the National Institute of Building Sciences Conference and Expo.

SBIC recently released the Beyond Green™: Guidelines for High-Performance Homes—Meeting the Demand for Low-Energy, Resource-Efficient Homes. These Guidelines provide a framework for incorporating high-performance attributes into the design, construction and operation of homes. A number of chapters in the Guidelines are applicable to both residential and commercial construction. Using the Beyond Green™: Guidelines for High-Performance Homes as the kick-off point, Symposium speakers will discuss how to effectively achieve specified levels of performance across a building’s life-cycle.

In addition to offering an introduction to high-performance attributes and the importance of a life-cycle approach to achieving an owner’s performance goals, the SBIC Symposium also will feature the 2013 Beyond Green™ Awards recipients and include case studies that exemplify how high-performance attributes can contribute to a sustainable building and show attendees ways attributes were incorporated into real-world buildings.
