This presentation is the first in a series sponsored by the AIASF’s Committee on the Environment (COTE) that introduces architects and engineers to the basic goals, opportunities and strategies of the AIA’s 2030 Commitment, an initiative that encourages architects and their design teams to pursue energy-saving design strategies in all of their projects. The Commitment asks architects to track and report anticipated building energy use during the design phase, with the goal of helping firms develop design strategies that improve energy efficiency and result in excellent project designs.
Spend an evening with two Bay Area architects and an engineer who have extensive experience designing buildings that meet the goals of the 2030 Commitment. The presentation and conversation will answer the following questions:

Designer, EHDD Architects, San Francisco
Amy Leedham is a designer with EHDD where she works on a diverse range of project types and scales in a variety of climates. Amy is actively involved in developing the firm’s “Sustainability Roadmap” which includes benchmarking, energy modeling and the annual 2030 commitment reporting. Amy graduated with honors from Northeastern University and went on to receive her Masters of Architecture in Sustainable Environmental Design from the Architectural Association in London, where she also taught environmental principles and simulation at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Her design sensibility is inherently connected with her technical knowledge about building science and she values the contribution of empirical data to design decisions. Her experience as both a designer and a sustainability specialist on multidisciplinary teams has reinforced her belief in the power of integrated collaborative design and she strives in fostering meaningful communication between the technical and creative members of a design team.STET SANBORN, Associate AIA, LEED AP
