Course Descriptions

Session 1: Lighten Up with Natural Daylight 1.5 CES LUs/HSW
Presenter: Jeanne Huntsman, AIA

Lighting is critical to occupant comfort and productivity in buildings.  This session will explore the use of natural light as part of a site’s resource inventory. Tools and metrics to identify strategies for maximizing its application while controlling glare and unwanted heat gain will be explored. Learn how an integrated design approach may be used throughout the various phases of the design process to balance energy goals with visual and thermal comfort.  Common installation and operation issues will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the impact of daylight harvesting on overall building energy consumption
  • Recognize the value energy modeling can provide to the design process in optimizing natural light
  • Identify the roles of each project team member in optimizing the daylighting potential
  • Implement key documentation and design strategies to ensure proper installation and operation of daylighting systems

Jeanne Huntsman has over 14 years of design and management experience in the A/E/C industry. As a Project Manager at The Weidt Group, she collaborates with architects and engineers to meet sustainable design objectives. She manages comparative analysis consulting to help design teams understand the energy and environmental implications of various design options. Ms. Huntsman received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Iowa State University. She is an active member of AIA Iowa, the USGBC Iowa Chapter, and Iowa Women in Architecture. She is a frequent speaker on the subjects of energy conservation and sustainable building practices for organizations such as USGBC and AIA. 

Session 2: Incorporating Energy Modeling into Your Design Process 2 CES LUs/HSW
Presenter: Jeanne Huntsman, AIA

As energy codes continue to raise the bar, energy modeling is becoming a fundamental design service. This course provides architects with an understanding of different types of energy modeling and how each can be utilized throughout the design process.  Review the modeling inputs needed from various team members to create the appropriate level of model fidelity for the different design phases.  Attendees will participate in a live interactive energy modeling session, gaining firsthand knowledge of the impact of early energy modeling.  This session concludes with an update of energy efficiency rebate programs available in Iowa.

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish between the different types of energy models and the factors they take into account.
  • Recognize the value energy modeling can provide to the design process and client decision making.
  • Interpret the environmental and financial benefits provided by energy modeling results.
  • Assist clients in obtaining energy efficiency rebates to buy down the cost of implementation.

Session 3: Understanding the Commercial 2012 IECC 1 CES LUs/HSW
Presenter: David Ruffcorn, AIA

The State of Iowa has advanced the Energy Code to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code. We will look at the changes from the 2009 IECC to the 2012 as well as take a look at specific details to improve compliance to the code.

Learning Objectives:

  • The participant will be introduced to the new format of the 2012 IECC. The new code is essentially separate codes for commercial and residential.
  • We will take a look at the prescriptive tables and learn about how specific building envelope assemblies have become more efficient.
  • We will learn about the mandatory mechanical and electrical provisions of the code and when the new additional efficiency package options are required.
  • Many of our standard construction details don't lend themselves to meeting the intent of the IECC. We will look at improvements to some common details for improved energy efficiency.

Dave Ruffcorn is with the State Fire Marshal’s Office – Building Code Bureau.

Dave holds a Professional Bachelor of Architecture degree from Iowa State University, is a Registered Architect, and has been a member of the AIA for over 21 years.  Dave has over 25 years of Architectural experience and has worked for a number of Central Iowa Architectural firms as well as running his own firm. Dave is the Iowa’s first, Energy Code plans examiner and building energy inspector.  Dave is responsible for reviewing all state owned and state funded buildings for adherence to the International Energy Conservation Code, Life Cycle Cost Analysis and LEED/Green Codes.

Continuing Education

By attending the Demystifying Energy Performance on July 22, 25, 29, or 30, AIA members will earn 4.5 AIA CES LUs/HSW, or 1-2 hrs AIA CES LUs/HSW per session attended. AIA Iowa is an AIA CES Approved Provider (#A023) with The American Institute of Architects Continuing Education System. Credit earned on completion of this program will be reported to AIA CES for AIA members. Certificates of Completion are available upon request. Questions? Contact AIA Iowa at info@aiaiowa.org.
