G02 - WELL and leedv4 Drives Displacement Ventilation Workplace IEQ Innovation

Abstract Text:

In large urban centres such as Chicago, where the market share of commercial buildings is classified as existing historical/landmarked buildings is often challenging in terms of building repositioning. The potential of existing buildings in a tenant fit-out can be elevated by thinking beyond traditional architectural and building systems. The HKS Chicago Living Lab leveraged collaboration from the start with pre-design focus groups that drove creative problem-solving, design-thinking, and co-creation of innovative solutions. Its own innovation, features displacement ventilation air distribution technology, integrated into a space initially used for the base building’s conventional overhead VAV system. This creative approach transformed the interior design of the Living Lab to one that substantially improves energy efficiency, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, lighting and employee productivity. The interactive effect between system selection and thoughtful interior finish selections and furniture layouts created a visually comfortable, balanced workplace environment supporting circadian rhythms (through daylight harvesting and mindful selection of LED lighting). Attendees will better understand the synergies between the International WELL v1 Building Standard and LEED v4 ID+C: Commercial Interiors to streamline project efforts for optimizing green building strategies for occupant health and wellness.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will better understand the synergies between the WELL v1 Building Standard January 2017 version and LEED V4 ID+C: Commercial Interiors to streamline project efforts for optimizing green building strategies for occupant health and wellness.

Attendees will learn how several WELL features were achieved by integrating a Feature 21 Displacement ventilation system in support of improved of occupant productivity and Feature 76 Thermal comfort, Feature 3 Ventilation effectiveness and Air quality for Feature 1.

Attendees will learn how modeling was integrated into the design process to support LEED’s v4 Integrative Process credit and to assess if project performance requirements were achieved.

Attendees will better understand how to leverage pre-design focus groups that establish measurable performance outcomes within WELL v1 Feature 18 Air Quality Monitoring and Feedback and LEED v4 Advanced Energy Metering.
