DBIA training focused on integrating measurable energy efficiency performance specifications into design-build acquisition and delivery. This training includes three videos, which can be viewed here:
Text transcripts of these videos will be posted when they are available.
This document provides an example request for proposal (RFP) created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District in June 2012 for Fort Carson Net Zero Army Barracks. The RFP has been annotated by the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) to demonstrate the project’s steps that follow NREL and DOE’s Energy-Performance-Based Acquisition process.
This presentation Session II from the RSF Workshop discusses the performance-based design-build process, which was used to procure and construct the Research Support Facility.
This guide presents a set of 15 best practices for owners, designers, and construction teams to reach high-performance goals and maintain a competitive budget. They are based on the recent experiences of the Research Support Facility owner and design-build team, and show that achieving this outcome requires that all key integrated team members understand their opportunities to control capital costs.
