Innovative Building Technology Guide- PDF

Building Technology

This Innovative Building Technology Guide is intended to assist building owners/operators and design professionals in the process of thoroughly and rationally considering and comparing multiple technologies and selecting the best one to meet a given objective. The upfront economic cost is only one of several economic considerations. Lifecycle analysis, return on investment, and total monthly operating costs (cash flow)-including utilities and loan principal and interest payments-are important considerations.

Tools and methodologies for analyzing and comparing the performance of various system options will provide assurance regarding maintenance schedules and costs, useful life, and documentation that equipment and products will perform as expected. Tools to help verify compliance with local codes, conformance with green standards and high performance programs, and the compatibility of selected technologies with each other are important indicators of feasibility and constructability in all homes and are specifically categorized based on climate, disaster, and other weather concerns.

About the Book

The field of building technology is very broad and encompasses a wide variety of components and systems that make up buildings and homes. This broad context makes the creation of a comprehensive guide such as this publication difficult. It must be taken into account that different people have vastly different levels of understanding and knowledge of buildings, the components and systems that make up buildings, and new technologies. Therefore, it is the authors’ intention that this guide be useful to many people.

When incorporating innovative technologies into a project or building, building professionals need to consider three major types of analysis.

  • Economic analysis to determine and identify all costs associated with the technology and project in order to make the most cost-effective decision.
  • A feasibility analysis determines whether a particular technology is applicable and compatible with the project or building.
  • Finally, a performance analysis determines whether the technology can achieve the project’s goals and objectives.

The Guide is organized around these three main evaluation channels (considerations), each of which is a different chapter heading. While these three types of analyses provide a framework for comprehensively evaluating building technology, it is also important to understand how they tie into overall project management. There are many variations on the structure of project management, but in general, many of the min corporate very similar components.

This guide book identifies four distinct phases of the project management structure. These phases outline a general schedule for the project. It is important to remember, however, that economic, feasibility, and performance considerations are important throughout the life of the project.
