PAST TOOL DAYS

 

 

August 7, 2005 

The FSEC Tool Day explored the Solar Energy Centerís leading edge building, one of the most energy-efficient buildings designed for hot-humid climates. You can get a sense of the building by visiting http://www.fsec.ucf.edu/about/tour/tourhome.htm.

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 culminate 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. 

The FSEC is located at 1679 Clearlake Road in Cocoa, FL 32922-5703.Your workshop fee included transportation from the Solar World Congress site in Orlando to FSEC.
