Session #1 – ASHRAE Standard 189.1 and the International Green Construction Code
ASHRAE, in conjunction with the U.S. Green Building Council and the Illumination Engineers Society, developed Standard 189.1 for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings with the initial release occurring in 2010. The Standard provides the minimum requirements for a high-performance green building, and was developed with the intent to provide a balance of environmental factors involved with designing, building, and planning for the operation of buildings. Since the initial release, the Standard has continually evolved as a result of changes in the industry and in relation to other Standards such as 90.1 This session provides a detailed summary of the key changes that are being incorporated in the release of the 2017 version of Standard 189.1 and how this Standard will relate to the International Green Construction Code with the 2018 code cycles revisions.
