The new Atlanta Falcons stadium is a large, complex project that strives to push sustainability forward in the realm of sports design and construction. The Design Teamled by 360 Architecture, with structural engineer BuroHappold Engineering also responsible for sustainability strategy and exterior lighting designwanted to include Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) as a part of the decision-making process for the new stadium. Core Sustainability Team members identified the Revit software Tally application as a tool that would provide effective and quick LCA feedback during design. With the project making extensive use of Revit software for effective design coordination, members integrated Tally into the project workflow. This lecture will share lessons learned about the benefits and challenges of using Tally on large-scale projects, and we'll cover the most effective way to use Revit software to generate LCAs in order to reduce the project's environmental impact and raise its public profile with regard to sustainability.

Julie Janiski works with building owners, developers, designers, and contractors to define and analyze high-performance goals and strategies throughout the life of a project. Julie leads a Sustainability Strategy and Advanced Analysis Team at BuroHappold Engineering in the New York office. She oversees the implementation of strategic frameworks and computational tools to develop informational feedback loops in early planning and predesign through each design phase to post occupancy. She is currently a key member of the Core Sustainability Team for the Atlanta Falcons project. Julie received a master of architecture degree from the University of Michigan and a master of design science degree in sustainable design from the University of Sydney.
Ryan conducts building performance analysis through the development of new software tools, workflows, and ways of envisioning data. His work provides critical feedback early in the design process, enabling iterative modeling of multiple design scenarios and addressing issues of shading, heat transfer, ventilation, operational energy, and environmental impact. Prior to receiving his Master of Architecture degree from Yale University, Ryan studied Chemistry and Russian at Amherst College, with a focus on molecular spectroscopy and experimental design and fabrication. At Yale, he was a teaching fellow in architectural drawing and structures, and he conducted research on tall building structural analysis, nation-scale development planning, and sustainability indexing. Ryan has worked for Ziger/Snead Architects and has taught architectural design at Yale and Princeton with Alejandro Zaera-Polo.
Lifecycle Assessments (LCA) are gaining relevance as a way to minimize a building's environmental impact. This seminar will demonstrate how we can use Revit software to perform LCA on architectural projects at any stage of the design process using Tally software, a new add-in released in 2014. The session will acquaint the audience with LCA through a comprehensive review of key concepts and their relation to building materials. Instructors will give hands-on demonstrations of Tally in a Revit environment, conducting assessments ranging in scale from discreet studies appropriate for addressing early design phase considerations to design option comparisons and whole-building assessments. We will tie these assessments back to core LCA concepts, highlighting the magnitude of the impacts found through assessments as compared to the modeled operational impacts of the demonstration projects.
The Dynamo open-source, visual-programming environment extends the parametric functionality of Revit software and Vasari software, as well as functioning as a stand-alone application. It is accessible to both programmers and non-programmers, and it has the ability to graphically script behavior, define custom function, and insert traditional text-based code. The Dynamo extension is developing at a rate that is much faster than most tools in architecture, engineering, and construction; this class will provide insight from the Development Team into recent additions and new functionality on the horizon.
Take a walk through Exchange for Revit software and see the most popular apps in action. In this class we will present a mix of Autodesk, Inc., apps that are sure to help any Revit user or CAD manager eliminate repetitive design tasks and create higher-quality designs. See some fun apps too.
This class will cover the setup and deployment of the Revit Server application across 10 locations that are currently being used in production internally for multioffice, multicontinent collaboration. We will cover everything from planning to hardware selection to training as we complete our first year utilizing this technology.
