As environmental policies and energy codes around the US become more stringent and push the bar on energy efficiency, design firms are faced with the challenge of addressing high performance design while balancing client expectations to deliver projects under budget and on time. In some parts of the country mandatory building benchmarking & reporting laws have also created a new perspective on the importance of measuring design/operational performance. Additionally, new additions to the AIA Code of Ethics have shed some new light on the role architects have on informing clients about their buildings impact on the environment.
In this episode, Scott Deatherage of Deatherage Law discusses some of his most interesting cases, the obligations architects and engineers have to deliver high performing buildings and some of the evolving market drivers that are pushing the envelope.
