The IBPSA (International Building Performance Simulation Association) National Capital Chapter is holding their quarterly meeting at Pinstripes on Tuesday, June 21. Please join us!
Who is IBPSA?
A non-profit, international society of building performance simulation researchers, developers and practitioners, dedicated to improving the built environment.
What does IBPSA seek to do?
Advance and promote the science of building simulation in order to improve the health of occupants, and the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings.

If you’re unable to make the meeting in-person, GoToMeeting information will be posted on the NCC website.
Date & Time: Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 6.00 pm – 7.30 pm
6 – 6.30 pm Networking and Refreshments
6.30 – 7.30 pm Presentations
Location: Pinstripes Bowling – 1064 Wisconsin Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20007
Nearest Metro: Foggy Bottom (Orange, Blue, and Silver lines)
Presentation Topics include:
- The Shockingly Short Payback of Energy Modeling – Speaker Anica Landreneau, director of global sustainability consulting at HOK.
Presentation Description: In case you missed the presentation at the Better Buildings Summit held at the US Department of Energy in May, Anica Landreneau of HOK will be giving an updated version of the presentation that led to the article “The Shockingly Short Payback of Energy Modeling” (http://energy.gov/eere/buildings/articles/shockingly-short-payback-energy-modeling). Modeling is critical to HOK’s mission and a key tool in maintaining the firm’s global standing as a high-performance leader. HOK sees modeling as a mechanism for shifting investment from a building’s active, mechanical systems to its passive, architectural elements, benefiting not only energy-efficiency, but also durability and aesthetics. Building energy modeling (BEM) is not a traditional ECM as it doesn’t directly save energy. However, by guiding selection and combination of direct ECMs, BEM is actually one of the most cost-effective ECMs. This presentation highlights the ROI of BEM, testimonials from project managers who use BEM to great effect and review options and resources for engaging with BEM early and often, and case studies of BEM application on local Washington DC projects.
- RAPMOD – Automated building of energy models for existing buildings – Speaker Annie Marston, head of building performance at Baumann Consulting.
Presentation Description: RAPMOD in its current form has been in development over the last 3 years. However, the concept and technology have been worked on by University of California Berkeley for the last decade. RAPMOD is a wearable technology that allows the user while walking through a building to create a comprehensive 3D virtual environment of the building, as well as automatically creating an idf energy model including all geometry, windows, lighting levels, equipment levels and occupancy estimates. The technology allows the rapid creation of an energy model with minimal input (HVAC) from the modeler, freeing up time for analysis and experimentation.
