Presentation Title: 
Face the Façade: High-performance design in Chicago high-rise buildings 

Brett Bridgeland, CEM, LEED AP
Energy Engineer, Seventh Wave

Presentation Abstract: 
Dive into the topic of envelope performance—arguably the largest single remaining opportunity for deep energy efficiency in Chicago high-rise buildings. This presentation focuses on all-glass buildings; debunking common industry myths and making the case for lower window-to-wall designs based on cost, performance and comfort. High-performance solutions for all-glass buildings are also discussed.
