Denver Tool Day at REI explored the award-winning building designed by Mithun Architects, a firm with a reputation and portfolio of sustainable architecture. The history and sustainable design features of the store are described in The REI Flagship Store.
This all-day workshop provided a setting in which participants
learned to use handheld
instruments, conduct a building performance case study through structured
methodology, provide hypothesis and investigation strategy formulation,
allow behind-the-scenes building investigations, and culminates in team
presentations of study results to the workshop participants. Participants
gained understanding of objective and subjective procedures for
performing post-occupancy evaluations of buildings.
Participants were encouraged to bring laptop
digital cameras, and lunch money. AIA/CES credits are available.
Society of Building Science Educators (SBSE) members, university students, and professional architects and engineers are encouraged to participate.
