Retrofit Now! Reducing Carbon and Complying with LL97
Event Description

In partnership with AIA New York, this multi-day course provides 14 CES LU|HSWs and training to make significant energy and carbon reductions in your clients’ buildings.

New York has gotten serious about climate change and this will have a huge impact on architectural practice. Local Law 97 sets carbon caps on emissions from large buildings and will be enforced with fines. Another law requires large buildings to post energy-efficiency grades near public entrances. In addition, the newest energy code is about 20% stronger than the last one.

Building owners now expect architects and other designers to have the expertise to help them meet the code, avoid fines, and get good grades. An estimated $21 billion will be spent on building retrofits to meet the carbon caps through 2030, and even more will be spent through 2050, representing a huge business opportunity for skilled designers and a chance to help solve the most pressing issue of this century. Designers without expertise may instead face legal liabilities, should their work result in carbon fines or low grades.

Key topics include:

- Regulatory and existing building stock context

- Retrofits, deep retrofits, and capital asset planning

- Typical architectural renovations that can be leveraged

- Engineering strategies for energy-use reduction

- Financial and technical assistance
