AIA 2030 Commitment’s Design Data Exchange (DDX) At Cumberland River Compact - 3rd Floor of the Bridge Building ( 2 Victory Ave Suite 300, Nashville, TN 37213) - 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Come learn about the new online 2030 Challenge tool. The Design Data Exchange (DDx) has been developed to better integrate tracking, reporting, and analysis of 2030 Challenge data into the design process. Over the past 6 months, the AIA, working with a dedicated team of “beta testers,” has rolled out the DDx, which is a web based portal that enables users to report new and research previous data entries including annonimized data beyond your firm’s projects. The DDX is like having a real-time CBECS database, with the ability to search and sort by building type, location and other project characteristics. Our presenters were part of the beta test and have been contributors to the 2030 Commitment annual reports since 2011.

The 2030 Challenge is an initiative by Edward Mazria and Architecture2030 asking the global architecture and construction community to adopt a series of greenhouse gas reduction targets for new and renovated buildings. Adopters embracing the challenge think differently about sustainable design so that they can strive to pursue aggressive building energy use reduction targets. The AIA 2030 Commitment is a growing national initiative that provides a consistent, national framework with simple metrics and a standardized reporting format to help firms evaluate the impact design decisions have on an individual project´s energy performance.
