AIA+2030 Online Series Course 7: High Performance Building Systems

Systems integration and strategies for high performance buildings.


After maximizing passive design strategies to reduce energy loads, the next step in high performance building design is the selection of properly sized equipment and advanced controls. This course will explore the effective integration of mechanical systems and controls with passive strategies for optimum building performance.


The AIA+2030 Online Series is an AIA and Architecture 2030 co-production, sponsored by Autodesk and delivered through AIAU.

It's based on the highly successful AIA+2030 Professional Series, which was created by AIA Seattle and Architecture 2030, with support from the City of Seattle and Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the various factors the influence building energy loads
  • Apply rightsizing after pursuing passive design strategies
  • Utilize controls to optimize the efficiency of equipment
  • Identify energy efficient strategies to maintain occupant comfort
