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.
Participants brought laptop
digital cameras, and a few dollars for our catered working lunch. AIA/CES credits
Society of Building Science Educators (SBSE) members, university students, and professional architects and engineers are encouraged to participate.
