The webinar series will be presented in 3 modules. All sessions begin at 11 am ET. AIA LU credentials are pending.


  • Scope development, contract language (Based on AIA E204-2017 Sustainable Projects Exhibit), and setting expectations with the client.

  • Energy target setting and modeling by design phase (Based on ASHRAE Standard 209); defining the scope, and managing execution throughout a project.

  • Reviewing specification language (For Division 01 – General Requirements), substitutions and RFI procedures, project turnover, commissioning, and post-occupancy considerations.

Learning Outcomes

These webinars will provide guidance on:

  • how design professionals should communicate about building performance with their clients
  • how to ensure provisions for building performance are central to the entire design and construction process
  • how to manage risk while expanding potential opportunities to support larger sustainability goals

Attendees will leave with the knowledge about what business changes that are necessary to support the greater adoption of high-performance buildings. The Hub will also provide specific recommendations and contract language that they can bring back to their companies for use in internal templates and procedures.
