How Covid-19 Is Changing Solar Permitting for the Better

This guest blog was written by Ryan Shea, Arthur Coulston, and Rushad Nanavatty of the Rocky Mountain Institute. In order to meet social distancing requirements brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, cities across the United States are moving permitting services, including solar, online. The International Code Council (ICC) recently surveyed its members and found that 65% of local code permitting officials have moved to remote work in response to the pandemic. This sudden digital move has many local governments considering much-needed overhauls to their systems.

The BS* + Beer Show: Deep-Energy Retrofit of an Old Timber-Frame House

This episode of the BS* + Beer show is the first in a new series of case studies. Our idea is to share whole-house projects steeped in building science-related information, and Mason Lord was the ideal guest to have out of the gate. Mason founded Hudson Valley Preservation (HVP), located in Kent, CT, nearly 30 years ago. The small design-build firm specializes in historic preservation, offering full-scope remodels and structural repairs. They work regularly on antique homes, many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Their most recent project, a deep-energy retrofit of a 200-plus-year-old timber…

Ventilation Requirements in the Covid Era

So far, building scientists have not achieved consensus on the issue of the best ventilation rate for buildings. As readers of Green Building Advisor probably know, the issue of how much fresh air to introduce into office buildings, schools, and homes has been controversial for years. (For more on the controversy, see “How Much Fresh Air Does Your Home Need?” and “Ventilation Rates and Human Health.”) Now that public health authorities and building managers are coping with a global Covid pandemic, the ventilation rate controversy has become even more complicated. In this article, I’ll do my best to outline the…

Blower Door Testing at the New ASHRAE Headquarters

Friday August 14th was a big day for SK Collaborative and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), which is is relocating from their current location on Interstate 85 in northeast Atlanta to a renovated, state-of-the-art 66,700-sq. ft. building adjacent to and in a strategic partnership with Curiosity Labs, a technology park designed to promote the growth of smart cities that includes a testing ground for autonomous vehicles. SK Collaborative was hired to perform envelope leakage testing. I manage multi-fan testing for SK Collaborative, and always look forward to the challenge of testing commercial-scale buildings of this magnitude. Located in Peachtree…
