Content DescriptionFor developing energy-efficient buildings, the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Office Buildings provides a sensible approach by including practical products and readily-available, "off-the-shelf" technology. The Guide offers you all the tools you need to create an energy-efficient building where the owners will see a 30 percent energy savings compared to buildings that only meet the minimum requirements of Standard 90.1. This four-color guide presents a simple approach to energy design for contractors and designers of office buildings up to 20,000 sq. ft. Ideal for the Contracting, Design and Remodeling industries, this peer-reviewed Guide features a user-friendly format and contains "how-to" guidance. The Guide provides benefits and savings for building owners while maintaining quality and functionality of the office space. The Guide includes: Easy to follow climate zones for your geographic region Recommendations for achieving energy efficiency credits for LEED Bonus strategies for saving energy outside the building Ways to retrofit existing buildings and renovations This Guide was awarded a 2005 Leadership Award by the USGBC, an honorable mention by the Alliance to Save Energy, and a Best Sustainable Practice Award from the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council. This Guide helps meet all of the owner\'s energy performance requirements, since it was developed by a diverse group of energy professionals: ASHRAE, the American Institute of Architects (AIA), New Buildings Institute (NBI), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.
ASHRAE was formed as the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers by the merger in 1959 of American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHAE) founded in 1894 and The American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE) founded in 1904.
