Technical Program Description
The new ASHRAE building, located in Technology Park in Peachtree Corners, is a 1970’s era 66,000 sq. ft. building that is being remodeled into a high-efficient, net-zero-ready facility to become ASHRAE’s worldwide headquarters. During the course of the design of the project, the design team encountered many envelope and system challenges involving the remodel of an older building and the effort to renovate it to meet the requirements of current ASHRAE 90.1 energy goals. This presentation focuses on those challenges.
