Carbon and Building Comprehension
Event Description

Scott Farbman with DataBased+ (dbHMS’s human-centered, research-driven design studio) will review the decisions faced by owners, developers, and designers in trying to achieve whole building carbon emission reduction.

This webinar will explore in detail the impact both HVAC and Envelope design decisions have on the total carbon emissions of a building and answer the question, “Are the decisions we think support a low-carbon building really achieving that goal, and if not, can we do better?"

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what role the built environment plays in total global greenhouse gas emissions
  2. Learn in more detail about the relationship between Embodied and Operational carbon emissions
  3. Recognize the impact refrigerant has on total carbon emissions
  4. Realize the role triple pane windows play in a Life Cycle Assessment
