The NY Times Bldg: Designing for Energy Efficiency Through Daylighting Research (end)

After the Times had offered to cover the cost of constructing the outdoor mockup, the Berkeley Lab/Times team successfully competed in a solicitation from the New York State Energy Research and Development Administration for the additional funding required to carry out its extensive instrumentation and monitoring and the associated analysis. The Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission also provided a share of the costs, as did the hardware vendors, making this a national partnership.

One floor of the New York Times Company's printing plant in College Point, New York has been modified as a fully equipped, 4,500-square-foot mockup of the planned new building's interior

Berkeley Lab will direct the 12-month, state-of-the-art performance evaluation in the testbed, and working with the Times Company will use project results to develop performance specifications, which should stimulate the building industry to provide lower cost technologies and systems that meet the needs of the building. Using this approach, the industry's experience with the Times building will help proliferate daylighting to other buildings.

"We think that demonstrating these technologies in a landmark building will gain them far more attention among manufacturers and specifiers than through more conventional lab-based research," says Selkowitz.

The New York Times Company, its architecture and engineering firms, and a Berkeley Lab team led by Eleanor Lee—consisting of Selkowitz, Francis Rubinstein, Dennis Dibartolomeo, Christian Kohler, Robert Clear, Greg Debra Ward, Judy Lai, David Watson, Howdy Goudey, Robin Mitchell, and Danny Fuller—have been working together to develop the R&D project plan and launch the project. They have held a series of design "charrettes" on the East and West Coasts and meetings with the building-supply industry. (Charrette, French for cart, is a term that originated among architecture students at the École des Beaux Arts, slang for piling on the work to meet project deadlines.)

Instruments in the mockup facility gauge the effectiveness of lighting controls, automated shading, furniture designs, and even interior finishes for the working environment of the New York Times building to come.

The mockup facility and final calibration of the instrumentation are now complete. Testing began on schedule on December 21, the winter solstice. While most of Berkeley Lab celebrated the holidays at home, Lee and her team were anxiously monitoring the data flow from the mockup. Watch the pages of Science Beat for the test results as they become available.

I don't know what the big deal is. So what if it goes over 500? Why don't you guys let the moderators worry about stuff like that and just enjoy the thread.

Het ziet ernaar uit dat onze voormalige overzeese gebiedsdelen niet meer naar ons luisteren.

Those bars make the building look cool. It would look funny without them but I guess that's the way they designed it.
