Building monitoring is typically reserved for high-cost building management systems or researchers far removed from the practice of designing and operating buildings. The architectural firm KieranTimberlake has spent the past ten years refining its capacity for designers to monitor the performance of their buildings, beginning with off-the-shelf components, and ultimately developing proprietary hardware and software. Roderick Bates will discuss the evolution of monitoring practices conducted by KieranTimberlake, including mistakes made and lessons learned. The talk will include a review of the firm's current monitoring practices, an overview of the firm's commercially available monitoring platform, and a discussion of how the data is used to assess performance and inform building operations.
Roderick Bates is a researcher at KieranTimberlake, an award-winning architecture firm recognized for its environmental ethos, research expertise, and pioneering design and planning. He assists architectural design teams in the development of holistic, performance-driven design architecture. His expertise includes evaluating energy use and thermal comfort, and gathering and interpreting site and building data to inform critical design decisions. In his role at KieranTimberlake he oversees the commercialization of technologies designed to elevate building performance broadly across environmental, economic, and aesthetic criteria. His early initiative to quantify the embodied energy of buildings was recognized with the US EPA Lifecycle Building Challenge award and a poster presentation in the ASHRAE Netzeb Energy Building conference in 2008. He is currently managing the development and commercialization for Tally ?, a BIM-integrated environmental impact software, and a sensor network platform. Roderick received a Master of Environmental Management from Yale University, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.'s picture
