ASHRAE updating the green building standard

New requirements were released by ASHRAE, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Illuminating Engineering Society this week. These standards look to reduce the environmental impact of buildings.

Some new requirements were released this week by ASHRAE, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Illuminating Engineering Society. These standards will help to reduce environmental and energy impacts of buildings. Changes have been made to the review process since the standards were published in 2011.

On HPAC’s website, Andrew Persily, chair of the Standard 189.1 committee, said the new standard updates all sections to be in line with information available to the committee.

Compliance with these updated provisions will help further reduce energy and environmental impacts through high performance building design, construction and operation while providing indoor environments that support the activities of building occupants,” he said.
