IES offer state of the art software and consulting solutions for LEED

Boston, November 12, 2013 – LEED automation partner IES, will be exhibiting at this year's Greenbuild for the tenth year in a row. Delegates who visit booth #3843 will find out about the company's latest technical solutions for LEED and how they will assist construction professionals undertaking LEED v4 assessments. IES LEED Software solutions include VE-Navigator for ASHRAE 90.1 (LEED Energy) with the latest release including the 2010 version of the Performance Rating Method, the latest VE Navigator for LEED 2009 with enhanced credits for the 2012 revision and the online project management tool IES TaP for LEED. The company also offers an extensive LEED consulting service from highly skilled and experienced consultants.


IES have collaborated on over 100 LEED projects worldwide, both new construction and existing. Its expertise covers the US, Canadian and Indian versions of the system, amongst others. It is also authorised to independently review LEED models in Canada and serve as LEED reviewers through the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), and has been involved closely in the development of LEED V4, sitting on the LEED Steering Committee, the Indoor Air Quality Working Group and chairing the Implementation Committee.

Demonstrating its expertise, the company will be presenting two of the new special set sessions at the show. These sessions are designed to invigorate traditional breakout sessions with alternative formats and new engaging environments. The presentations are as follows:

A04: Next Generation LEED Measurement & Verification (15656)

Date: Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Time: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Room: Terrace Ballroom IV, 400 Level

Speakers: Brenda Morawa & Todd Lukesh


IES VP for North America and recent awardee of the USGBC's LEED Fellow award, Brenda Morawa will take to the stage with recently appointed IES West Coast VP, Todd Lukesh to educate the audience on how you can leverage next generation developments in multi-dimensional modeling for whole building M&V assessment. Currently, the IPMVP calibrated simulation route to M&V is probably the least utilized – this session is concerned with this route and how to take it to the next level by using detailed BMS data across sub hourly time-steps.

Technical Director for IES, Richard Quincey will focus on the integration of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) & Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) into BIM. With the audience, he will investigate how to incorporate disconnected operational and embodied impact consideration to provide holistic resource-efficient buildings.

IES will also be presenting at the Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. booth #3456, as well as taking part in the USGBC's App Lab. A two day IES Virtual Environment (IESVE) training course will also be held in Philadelphia prior to Greenbuild on November 18-19. A special offer of two free projects with every sign up to IES TaP for LEED will be available to attendees.

Don McLean, Founder and CEO of IES said, "We are excited to yet again be a huge part of Greenbuild. We have a jam packed schedule this year with training sessions, various presentations, meetings and our main exhibition booth. Greenbuild just gets bigger every year for us. With the launch of LEED v4, we are really looking forward to showcasing our entire integrated LEED solutions portfolio."

Featured Product

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
