Net-Zero Energy Building!
Net-Zero Energy Building design and construction was the topic of Building Enclosure Webinar with Daniel Overbey with Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf as speaker. BCCLT provided MEP Engineering services to Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, Architect for the Net-Zero Energy Lincoln Heritage Public Library, Indiana Chrisney Branch project which included a high efficient building enclosure with passive features to reduce energy demand. Ground geothermal energy is used to satisfy 100% of the cooling and heating demand of the Library. Photovoltaic panels collect solar energy and provide electric power to drive the renewable geothermal energy source for the HVAC system as well as electrical power and lighting within the Library. The Geo-Thermal Heat Pump Concept of drawing energy from the earth is practical, clean and safe while costing less to operate than efficient hybrid high efficiency gas furnace heating and air source heat pump systems.
