AIA+2030 Online Series Course 9: Staying in Shape: O&M and Commissioning

Tools and techniques for ensuring the building performs as predicted.


Actual building performance is the ultimate measure of high-performance design. This course will cover the tools available to architects for best achieving predicted performance, including building commissioning, maintenance staff and occupant training, and building performance monitoring. This course will also explore the use of building performance data and smart building systems to validate and improve performance, and as a tool for iterative learning and innovation. 

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.
