The High-Performance Building Committee's (HPBC)  purpose is to document and promote integrated design approaches that optimize building attributes, including energy efficiency, durability, life-cycle performance, and occupant productivity.  Through focused case studies, site visits, roundtable discussions, and educational sessions, we detail the techniques and technologies that advance exceptional performance in buildings--and the metrics and methods to demonstrate performance, including low-carbon, net-zero and net-positive design.  We welcome the collaboration of architects, engineers, planners, contractors, building owners and managers, policy makers, and anyone else with an interest in improving the quality and sustainability of the built environment.


The goals of the committee include providing both informal opportunities for those involved in the design and construction of high-performance buildings to learn from each other and  structured intermediate to advanced level education sessions on topics within high performance building design to advance the level of knowledge within our local design community.
