Hyper Efficient Buildings Workshop
Strategies to comply with Local Law 31

In 2016, New York City passed Local Laws 31 and 32, aimed at strengthening existing sustainability requirements and introducing new measures that will make NYC-owned buildings among the most efficient in the country. Specifically, Local Law 31 requires new municipal buildings to use 50% less energy compared to code or the median energy use for buildings of that type in New York -radically more efficient than most buildings under construction. Through these laws, most new city buildings and major retrofits must achieve LEED Gold status and cut their energy use in half.

To assist the professional community in preparing to meet this challenge, AIANY will offer in-depth training starting this summer and continuing throughout the fall on the design of hyper-efficient buildings and compliance with LL31/32. The two-day workshops are limited to 25 participants and open to all architects, designers, engineers, and construction trade professionals.

The architectural firm of A2M has designed dozens of exemplary buildings that meet Passive House standards and specializes in trainings on hyper-efficient building design. A2M will be leading this workshop in New York, which will include modules delivered by Dan Nall of Syska Hennessy and other New York City experts. The workshop will be a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions developing wall sections and working with modeling tools.
