Course Description:
Deep retrofits go well beyond a system-by-system approach to existing building equipment upgrades. They require a holistic building redesign that incorporates infrastructure, mechanical and electrical systems, building skin, renewable energy, and energy analysis and management. Unlike new construction projects, deep retrofits have the added complexity of working through constraints inherent in the existing structure that designers and contractors must resolve.

This course will present how the owner, developer, design teams, and general contractor approached the conversion and deep retrofit of the former Meier & Frank warehouse into a high-performance office building that serves as the North American headquarters for Vestas. The project is LEED® Platinum certified and has achieved an Energy Star score of 99 through post occupancy energy analysis verification.
