1 Return to Curriculum Home CES Home Find an AIA/CES Registered Course Self Report a Learning Activity MATERIALS AND METHODS To develop professionally in Practice with a focus on sustainable design, you will need to be able to evaluate materials and technologies and select and define building systems and products that promote energy efficiency. Performance in this area includes systems selection, enclosure systems, material selection and high performance strategies. Systems Selection Enclosure Systems Material Selection Assessment and Mitigation High Performance Strategies SYSTEMS SELECTION The development of a building based on construction types and processes, occupancy, climate, and economic factors; heating, cooling, lighting, power, life safety systems, information, water and waste systems; building materials performance; and building codes. It further involves creating statically stable structures defining spatial order; mindful of characteristics of materials, manufactured components and assemblies. Key Knowledge Needs structural systems, construction types and processes efficiency and design constructability recycled materials long life loose fit prefabrication deconstructability conservation materials and embodied energy adaptive use and natural building materials material life biomimicry active solar systems alternative energy renewable energy energy saving appliances and equipment geoexchange radiant heating and cooling waste heat recovery water conservation photovaltaics smart controls mass absorption high efficiency equipment material selection and embodied energy passive solar collection building codes conflict between traditional zoning regulations and sustainable development, as well as solutions performance zoning aesthetics buildings that use sustainability as form generator awareness of properties and materials, celebrating not concealing them (not one singular solution)

2 environmental context indigenous prototypes (materials, scale, relationship to other buildings and sites) environmental impact of materials selected local and regional economic factors regionally produced materials energy sources system selection on economic opportunity contributes to a sense of place appropriate systems based on location appropriate systems based on long term heating, cooling, lighting, power, life safety systems, information, water and waste systems rightsizing of equipment based on other system decisions (whole systems thinking) efficient artificial lighting efficient site lighting systems cogeneration conserving systems and equipment energy source ramifications passive and natural techniques, e.g. passive collection, daylighting, and natural ventilation building materials, manufactured components and assemblies, characteristics and performance Job position may influence professional development. View how your colleagues who practice sustainable design rate the importance of Systems Selection.

3 Relevant Skills/Abilities Following are the primary skills and abilities associated with Systems Selection for professional activity in Practice. CRITICAL THINKING skills are needed to synthesize, collect, interpret, conceptualize and apply detailed information using systematic processes and established methodologies. Research Methods require skill with an assortment of data collection tools, systematic processes, and methodologies. Data Analysis uses techniques to synthesize and interpret data and information generated from a variety of research sources. Research Assessment and Use evaluates the credibility of results generated through various types of research and studies for their application to business, project or role. PROJECT MANAGEMENT Oversee, coordinate and supervise planning scheduling and implementation. As an architect practicing sustainable design, knowledge of integrated project delivery is beneficial (IPD). IPD is a collaborative project delivery approach that fully integrates all stakeholders early on in the process, enabling participants to optimize project results, increase value, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency throughout the project lifecycle. Strategic Alliance and Planning includes strategies and using strategic plans and models for integrating project delivery. Project Operations organize and plan the use of organizational resources to enhance peak team effectiveness, for development of stakeholder culture, and for team organization throughout project cycle. Project Controls track and manage progress against the project goals for relevant stakeholders. Project Delivery ensures that interdependent project delivery models include representation of all parties, and recognize the roles of owners, contractors, regulatory agencies and others BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION activities create effective office operations and management tasks ranging from executive to administrative functions. Office Management includes office functions that support the organization/firm viability. Marketing creates strategic market placement and competitive business advantage. COMMUNICATION uses verbal, non verbal and visual approaches to effectively exchange information. Written Communications applies textual media to present balanced and informed messages. Oral Communications uses the spoken word to inform, persuade, or negotiate successfully. Graphic Communications include visual elements that effectively present ideas, concepts and content. PRACTICE LEADERSHIP inspires and fosters personal and professional growth of others, using the highest ethical standards and integrity.

4 Strategic Visioning conceptualizes and applies context/setting specific strategies that align with stakeholder goals and values. Values/Ethics incorporates integrity, diversity, respect and stewardship. TECHNOLOGY enhances practice through improved methods of documentation, management, processing and dissemination of data and information. Computer Graphics uses systems or techniques to enhance or augment visual communications. Computer Modeling involves digital technologies that represent or simulate. Building Information Modeling applies digital three dimensional software representation of a building consisting of objects that simulate specific properties of actual building components including design, building performance, fabrication information, erection instructions, and project management logistics, and facility management. Systems Technologies make use of building systems and building operations software to simulate or manage building functions. Auxiliary Software Programs includes software that supports office, project or other programs.
