MIDCENTURY ICONS: LINCOLN CENTER

Upgrading Lincoln Center's 6.3-acre campus—including 30 performing arts facilities and a central mechanical plant—required an in-depth energy study to identify the most viable and effective projects. Crissy Haley, Senior Project Manager at JLL, took us through the process and challenges of benchmarking, energy auditing and retro-commissioning this iconic gem at our 2015 conference, Modern All Over Again. Watch Haley's presentation on our website.

Energy Code: Tip of the Week

A "mandatory" provision in the energy code means that every project must comply with it no matter which compliance path is chosen. You can’t trade them off. "Prescriptive" provisions can be traded within the envelope, mechanical, hot water or lighting systems in COMcheck or between the systems via the performance path using an energy model.

Learn more about how to Conquer the Energy Code at one of our upcoming courses for residential and commercial architects and engineers.
