Studio Delivers First Carbon Neutral Design Training

This training will be conducted by John F. Kennedy and Patrick J. Bailey using Revit, ArchiCAD, and our Green Building Studio web service (GBS). Core topics of the training include fundamental principles of how a building can achieve carbon neutrality, how today's BIM tools make it easier then ever to do energy analysis, and why the earliest decisions an architect makes are the most critical.

The training team will use the GBS web service Version 3.0 which has many new features specifically targeted to designers of carbon neutral buildings including:

    -- Carbon Neutral Building Check - Determining the feasibility for       building designs to achieve carbon neutral status.    -- Design Advisor - Determining how efficient each building design could       be given economic constraints and measure cost assumptions.    -- US EPA Energy Star Score - Computing the US EPA Energy Star score for       every design change.    -- Corporate Account Capabilities - Constructing libraries of shared       corporate designs and building templates, and demonstrating how to       manage and review firm-wide designs for energy and water use analysis.  

The first training, held August 20-21, was a smashing success and attendees from leading architecture firms indicated that sessions were incredibly valuable. Training will take place on October 8th and 9th at the Vintner's Inn in Santa Rosa, California. The training costs $1,995, including all gourmet meals. Accommodations and transportation are not included, though we encourage all attendees to stay at the reasonably priced Vintner's Inn.

Space is limited to twenty participants. Contact Merna Kerss at or 707.569.7373 x103 and register today! Additional details on the training content can be found in the training flyer here at
