ABX workshops and conference tracks prepare today’s AEC professionals to meet today’s most challenging demands across wide ranging topics that include housing, preservation, equity, environmental mitigation, and urban planning. From deep dives into current codes and regulations to explorations of new technologies that advance the halt of building-related carbon emissions, ABX offers the highest level of education, training, and insight. Keeping our skills sharp is perhaps the single most critical undertaking for today’s AEC professional. Why? Because business as usual is a thing of the past for our beautiful, bountiful industry. Like no other professional collective working across the globe, we are poised to make an organized, powerful, and fully measurable response to climate change, which many consider the defining issue of our time. We’re glad you’ve come to ABX. Explore new products, watch live demonstrations of innovative building techniques, create new partnerships and celebrate with old friends. Visit the BSA at booths #547A and 547B. We hope you leave the conference more energized and impassioned than when you came in! Jean Carroon FAIA Principal, Goody Clancy 2019 BSA President

Empathetic Design: Crafting Spaces for People - Women in Design Keynote

A Designer and Neurologist’s Approach to Empathic Design (Sponsored by WiD)

In a time when the national political debate focuses on policies that exclude, discriminate, and promote barriers, it is vitally important as design professionals to ask ourselves how we create places – homes, workplaces, or public squares – that feel safe, welcoming, and inclusive. Join us as we explore the ideas, processes, and outcomes of this design approach as they relate to designing for both individuals and communities.

See page 49 for description.

Empathetic design strives for the equitable application of human-centered design principles, which prioritize the effect a space has on the people who occupy it. While these principles are widely used in product and web design, this panel will investigate how they are translated to interior design, architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. Empathetic design seeks to expand the definitions of stakeholders, acknowledging patterns of historical marginalization. In this keynote discussion we bring together architects, landscape architects, urban designers, artists, educators, and community engagement professionals to explore the ways each implements and explores empathetic design in their practice.

10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW The design and construction of affordable housing in Massachusetts can be subject to up to four different sets of accessibility requirements: the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the accessible design and construction requirements of the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS), and 521 CMR: the Rules and Requirements of the MA Architectural Access Board (MAAB). This session will identify conflicts in scoping among these four codes and standards for both new construction and alterations, and the panelists will share compliant architectural solutions to these conflicts drawn from their own projects and the work of others. In addition, panelists will present recommendations for best practices in Universal Design and Aging-inPlace for affordable housing projects.

As the environment becomes increasingly more litigious, even the smallest deviations from required dimensions are being cited by building inspectors and advocacy groups. During construction, this can be less than ½” dimensional variation. This session will discuss common construction errors related to accessibility requirements, when and how they are identified, and how they are successfully addressed.

In this workshop we cover critical areas where the regulations of the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board and the ADA Standards differ: alterations, vertical access, toilet rooms, ramps, technical infeasibility, variances, to name a few. We will also discuss where the requirements conflict and present a few resolutions. Finally, since the ADA is a civil rights law, we will review accessibility requirements for older building not planning alterations.

Achieving Accessibility Compliance in State-Owned Buildings 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW Under Title II of the ADA, January 26, 1995 was the deadline for public entities to eliminate accessibility barriers listed in their transition plans. By Friday morning, January 27th, all municipal and state buildings throughout the U.S. were supposed to be ADA-compliant. Clearly, things didn’t quite work out that way. This workshop will address the guiding principles behind the strategic approach to renovating existing state-owned buildings. Examples of successful processes for making public buildings fully accessible to people with disabilities will be shared for five building types: STEM buildings, theaters and other assembly spaces, courthouses, correctional centers, and health care buildings. Architects can engage in creative problem solving to eliminate accessibility barriers and improve existing buildings in the context of limited capital resources.

Converting Office Buildings Into Laboratory Facilities 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | IDCEC Building owners and users have increased their requests on what to consider in evaluating existing office and multi-tenant buildings for laboratory/biotech use. There is also interest in what to consider in the design of new buildings to accommodate the ever increasing demand for laboratory space.

In this workshop we will first review the market demand side of the equation - where users are coming from and a profile of their typical space and laboratory requirements. We will also look at some of the location preferences and the growing suburban sub-market for lab/biotech requirements. Our panel will look at infrastructure requirements and how they can be facilitated in existing buildings, reviewing MEP systems, tenant separations, clear height and structural considerations, internal space requirements for equipment and material handling as well as municipal permitting considerations.

Boston City Hall and Plaza: Reinterpreting a Civic Legacy 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | LACES Boston City Hall Plaza is one of the city’s most recognizable civic spaces that is undergoing major renovation plans this year. The new design takes the significant cultural legacy of the building and plaza into account, reinterpreting its historic bones as it reinvents the experience of the seat of city government for a greater diversity of uses by a far greater diversity of people. Learn how the new design incorporates the building and plaza’s design legacy and the recently-completed master plan while innovatively reimagining universal accessibility, play, sustainability and resilience strategies, shade and human comfort features, flexible civic and social gathering places, an overall welcoming visitor experience, updates to public safety and security measures, and more. This panel will weave landscape architecture, architecture, and city voices into an unfolding narrative about the vast potential of a site and building that has been in persistent need of reinvigoration for decades.

Re-Imagining a Boston Treasure: The Trinity Church Story 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm 1.5 AIA | IDCEC Trinity Church, designed by H.H. Richardson, stands as one of Boston’s most recognizable and beloved buildings. Goody Clancy, under the guidance of the Church’s Building Committee, led a team of design consultants in a comprehensive, multi-phase restoration campaign, that included exterior envelope restoration and building systems upgrades. The on-going stewardship of the building has been a multi-decade effort that required a collaborative effort between stakeholders, including Parishioners, design professionals, contractors, the city, and local and national agencies. This panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities of restoring this Boston icon. With the most recent lighting improvements -- the most extensive since the 1950s -- the panel will discuss the challenges of prioritizing the restoration of exterior and interior elements and balancing the historic aesthetics of a National Historic Landmark with the needs of an active Parish all while integrating improvements to life-safety and energy performance.

Ultimate Sustainability: NECCO Transforms to GE Headquarters 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | IDCEC Necco Court, Boston Massachusetts was home to a 20th century manufacturing giant, New England Confectionery Company (NECCO). By the keeping and combining of two buildings into one, Necco Court is now becoming home to a 21st century giant, General Electric. Maintaining existing buildings for reuse is the pinnacle of sustainable design in terms of the initial carbon footprint of a project, but the challenge remained: how to reuse two brick warehouse buildings for an interactive, inviting and inventive hub for GE. By implementing a voluntary seismic upgrade, the two buildings are now linked, allowing for extensive new fenestration. The project reclaimed extensive existing material: bricks for repair elsewhere, timber columns, beams and floor planks for reuse. By repurposing and reclaiming materials and by a strategic design decision to merge the two original buildings, the new GE Headquarters has leveraged the project site for a vibrant and sustainable headquarters.

Alysha Dohallow, Associate, Gensler

Escape from Ugly Valley 10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA Ugly Valley is a place bounded by temporality. The phrase describes a dip in the sine curve of a building’s popularity that generally occurs about 40-60 years into its history. Such a downturn is dangerous because it represents the vulnerable period in which many works of architecture are destroyed because their original use value has expired, and their styles have fallen out of public favor.

Educational Tracks | Workshop Descriptions

panel, experts in building and urban scale climate adaptation and historic preservation will examine the unique challenge of building-level adaptation for historic structures at risk of inundation.

This panel discusses how the boundaries of the Ugly Valley are formed by taste and language. ‘Monstrosity’ appears to be a favorite word for those who wish to bully and belittle architecture into obscurity and, in the more alarming cases, onto a demolition list. We need not look hard to remind ourselves that the term has been used by previous generations to describe Victorian architecture, French Second Empire buildings, and many other styles seen as outmoded within a half-generation of their heyday.

Restoring & Updating Massachusetts Masters for Today 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | IDCEC Modern houses have been an important part of Massachusetts’ architectural legacy since the 1930s and are an integral part of the design fabric of several communities. This workshop will focus on educating professionals on the value of this resource and provide lessons on how best to preserve this asset. Starting with design lessons from vintage modern houses: modest size, simple palette of materials, and strong connection to nature and how that can be applied to today’s houses. We will explore the work of Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Karl Koch, Henry Hoover, and others. We will also cover technical considerations as many early modern homes have not performed well in New England’s harsh climate. As well as thermal comfort, since a lack of insulation, slabs on grade without insulation, single glazing, and inadequate heating systems have rendered many of these homes uncomfortable to live in and expensive to heat and cool.

Making Your Proposals Scream “Pick Me!” 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm 1.5 AIA | IDCEC | LACES Sponsored by: In today’s competitive landscape, clients find it hard to differentiate between consultants. As you juggle multiple deadlines, input from many parties, and a list of RFP requirements, how can you strengthen your proposals? Participants will leave this session feeling prepared to tailor their proposals, making their proposals stand out. When reviewing proposals, the selection committee only has one question: Why is your firm the best fit for our project? But as proposal writers juggle multiple deadlines, input from many parties, and a laundry list of RFP requirements, the answer to that important question gets buried. It’s time to stop focusing on quantity over quality, and instead, make your main ideas shine through to strengthen your proposals.

Daylight your Building to Net Zero Energy 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI | IDCEC Lighting contributes significantly to a building’s overall energy use: electrical lighting can comprise five or more kBtu/SF/yr of the overall Energy Use Intensity in a non-residential building. Daylighting reduces the need for both electrical lighting and the energy needed to cool a building. Additionally, a well-daylit space supports the health and wellbeing of a building’s occupants and can achieve a stunning visual impact. This presentation will discuss strategies to use lighting and daylighting to minimize energy use and move towards net zero energy goals.

3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI The Acton Boxborough Regional School District has a deep commitment to sustainability in it’s construction and operations of buildings. When ABRSD learned about the concept of Triple Net Zero (energy, water, and waste), they were intrigued to understand how this would play into their planning for new schools. They decided that triple net zero should be a goal for how they developed two new elementary schools. Come explore the journey of this project. The school district will discuss why and how they pursued triple net zero as well as the community engagement process. The design team will explore net zero definitions, user engagement in the design process, and challenges and solutions to design strategies. They will discuss how to balance the demands for building area, financing, and site area (including building footprint, geothermal wells, water collection and treatment, waste collection, and photovoltaics).

Panelists will present tools and strategies for designing and planning daylit spaces, and demonstrate fundamental daylighting design and planning principles by computer simulations and physical models. Participants will learn how to consider daylight spatially, gain insights on material and color selection, and understand the integration of artificial light. Case studies will be used as examples of incorporating techniques into project workflow.

Apples-to-Apples: Life Cycle Assessments and Façade Systems 10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA As Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) become more important for carbon reduction goals and tools allow designers to compare design decisions, it is still difficult to perform an apples-to-apples comparison when it is most beneficial ” in early design phases. Typical workflows and digital tools require modeling of a partial or full building in order to be analyzed; if this happens late in the process, LCAs document rather than drive design changes. A rigorous process was developed to create an accessible apples-to-apples LCA guide (read: menu) for specific building components empowering early, informed design decisions. Due to its impact on a building’s embodied carbon and design, typical façade systems were studied first. The panel will present their process, the basics of LCAs and how to implement and integrate LCAs into workflows, as well as sharing insight from with the façade system comparisons which is applicable to all project types.

Getting to 18: An Integrated Approach to Achieve EUI of 18 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society aspires to be the world’s premier institute for transforming humankind’s understanding of energy issues. The design is the result of intensive collaboration among the members of the design team,and was initiated by a commitment from Dartmouth College to achieve a high-performance building. The building façade is optimized for daylight and passive building systems. A prominent glass volume supports and expresses the workings of the natural ventilation system. Use of healthy materials, onsite renewables, and reduction of embodied carbon are several of the project’s other goals. The current target for this project is an EUI of 18-22. The building systems are designed to not only minimize energy usage at the building, but also to minimize peak loads. The overall strategy for the building includes the integral role of the occupants and their behavior, as natural ventilation is a key element of that strategy.

Healthy Firehouses: Developing Boston’s Design Guidelines 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | HSW | IDCEC Since 1990, 190 Boston firefighters have succumbed to occupational cancer, one of the leading causes of death among firefighters. To combat this problem, the Boston Fire Department has implemented new practices to mitigate prolonged exposure to carcinogenic toxins, particularly within the firehouses themselves. Some of these practices involve the renovation and/or industrial cleaning of Boston’s aging firehouses to reduce contaminants that have accumulated over time. Other practices involve the replacement of existing firehouses. The City has developed Design Guidelines for new firehouses for that prioritize the environmental containment of carcinogens. This workshop will focus on the potential causes of occupational cancer among firefighters, the rationale and procedures for the industrial cleaning of firehouses, the process of developing the firehouse design guidelines, and the basic components of the guidelines themselves.

Inclusivity in Courthouse Design 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | IDCEC Sponsored by: In courthouse settings the public find themselves stressed, intimidated and at their most vulnerable; how can courthouse design be more empathetic to this human condition, starting with inclusivity of all users? How can the design process address these issues, starting with the project team’s implicit biases and culminating with spatial solutions? This panel will share current court planning strategies for an inclusive programming process and ask how we can ensure that all voices are heard. We will present an overview of current trends in judicial practices and the role that architectural design can take to support these strategies. The presentation will conclude with courthouse designs that exemplify broader principles of inclusivity such as Universal Design, inclusive spaces and accommodations, and how technology, wayfinding, and physical space can support them. Finally, we ask: how can public art elevate the voices of the community and anchor an institution within its community?

Biological rhythms that repeat approximately every 24 hours are called circadian rhythms. Light is the main stimulus that helps the circadian clock, and thus circadian rhythms, to synchronize with the 24-hour day. If lack of synchrony or circadian disruption occurs, we may experience decrements in physiological functions, neurobehavioral performance, and sleep. Lighting for the circadian system employs lighting design objectives that differ from those typically used in traditional architectural lighting design, and therefore, requires metrics that differ from those currently used by lighting designers. A summary of the lab and field research will be presented along with practical design solutions to increase the potential for circadian light exposure in buildings. The goal of this presentation is to provide attendees with research findings together with new tools and metrics that will help them specify and apply effective lighting to improve lighting in our living environments.

The WELL Mind Concept: Psychological Health in Buildings

Richard L’Heureux, Manager, Programming, Planning and Design, Court Capital Projects and Facilities Management

10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI | IDCEC The Mind concept of the WELL Building Standard promotes psychological health and well-being in organizations through building design, programs, policy and culture.

When well designed and planned, a highperforming organizational environment has the potential to address ailments such as stress, depression, isolation, and substance dependency while maximizing human potential through positive settings that improve creativity, focus, recuperation, and community support.

ways, though we don’t often consider how we can create a space in our immediate environment that satisfies these regularly. Interior designer Barbara Vail and behavioral neurologist Joel Salinas, MD, will identify life situations in which the designer can serve as a specialist and educator in creating a space that is human-centered, thoughtful, and reflective of the inhabitants. Specific case studies will be referenced, including the apartment design for Dr. Salinas, to illustrate useful ways an empathic approach can be used to leverage unique design opportunities and address both typical and atypical challenges. The unusual backgrounds of both Barbara and Joel offer a special multi-disciplinary view into why empathic design tools are critical when co-creating a space with your client.

In this panel session, we bring together diverse perspectives from the development of the WELL Building Standard, design and construction, psychological research, and the implementation of mindfulness training in organizations.

Security and Safety in the Public Realm 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | HSW | LACES Public buildings and open space have framed and shaped civic life since ancient times. And in times of social peace, these places were sanctuaries for community and public life, and they were safe. Today, acts of violence are carried out in peacetime and on civilians around the world, and public spaces and buildings in cities are targets. The design of these spaces cannot respond to every action with an equal and opposite reaction, lest our public buildings become fortresses and publicly accessible open spaces disappear.

Wicked Awesome Cities: A Toolkit for Place-Based Strategies

Climate Resiliency at MIT

10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA | LACES The Wicked Awesome Cities Toolkit provides a menu of strategies that take a place-based approach to community revitalization and reinvestment. While many towns and cities in Massachusetts view their challenges as unique, issues such as main street and downtown business revitalization, walkability, and infill development are common to most. The Toolkit does not present a one-size-fits-all solution for these issues; rather, it offers a set of solutions that can be applied across a number of contexts and adapted to meet the needs of each municipality. More and more towns and cities in the Commonwealth are opting for a spatial, incremental approach to planning that provides flexibility and actionable outcomes. Tangible interventions within the urban realm can create a critical mass of activity and cause spillover effects in neighboring areas. Through design-based efforts concentrated in compact areas, the Toolkit offers catalytic solutions that provide more “bang-for-your-buck” than traditional comprehensive planning.

3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI | LACES MIT is taking a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary approach to the challenge of planning, designing and building for a climate resilient future. At the intersection of campus and city, research and practice, MIT relies on academic partners to help define the site-specific climate hazards that put the MIT campus at risk, today and in the future. The impact of significant climate events is then translated into a risk management framework, which allows unconventional partners such as insurers to collaborate with MIT to manage the risk to our built assets. Finally, we collaborate with City and academic partners to manage the uncertainty of climate risks, and take specific planning and design measures for site and landscape projects, existing building renovations, and new construction. This presentation will discuss the various lenses through which MIT is approaching the challenge of planning for climate resiliency.

Data-Driven Planning for Dynamic Learning Environments 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | IDCEC | LACES Schools aim to prepare students for future success through a rigorous and intentional academic program, allow pursuit of individual interests, and support project-based learning. In order to achieve these goals, it is critical that the physical learning environment reflect its unique academic pedagogy and is grounded within financial realities. School administrators and designers can work together to develop these learning environments by examining facilities at a campus-wide scale. Using The Wheeler School as a case study, speakers will outline a data-driven approach to master planning that examines utilization, efficiency, programming, and ideal adjacencies. An analytical process helps designers develop a principle-driven framework plan that is responsive, facilitates decision-making in the short term and long term vision, and offers incremental and achievable moves that serve their client’s long-term vision. The process enables schools to develop a holistic understanding of campus needs and work towards a phased implementation and investment strategy.

Highly Energy-Efficient Buildings to Net-Zero 8:30 am – 10:00 am 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI Climate change, social responsibility, energy security, and occupant health are key drivers for today’s high-performance building innovation. This panel will provide individual presentations and discuss current and future vision of highperformance buildings in the contexts of efficiency, resiliency, and urbanism. Steve Kemp of RDH Building Science will focus on a discussion about highly energy efficient buildings. He will present an example of a new state-of-the-art institutional project achieving net-zero carbon emissions. Marine Sanchez, of RDH Building Science, will explore the global rise of Passive House and high-performance buildings in commercial and multifamily sectors. Holly Samuelson, Assistant Professor Harvard Graduate School of Design, will introduce “other considerations” when designing highly energy efficient buildings. Including, 1) embodied energy and life-cycle analysis of the materials, 2) occupant behavior in the simulations, 3) reducing peak loads and improving passive survivability. The session will include time for a lively discussion, questions, and answers.

Building Enclosure Performance for Resilience

Codes and Enclosure Commissioning For Today’s Issues

10:30 am – 12:00 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI | IDCEC Resilience is the ability to recover from or adapt to misfortune or change. In times of extreme weather events and their aftermath, we expect healthcare facilities to be resilient, so they can house and treat vulnerable populations. A case study of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Boston’s Waterfront will be presented, to illustrate a project where symbiotic sustainable and resilient strategies have been implemented. The panel will explore features of the building designed to ensure that spaces are thermally and visually comfortable in both summer and winter conditions, even during power loss. For the past 6 years since the building opened, the thermally efficient building enclosure and integral daylighting have helped to increase functionality and reduce vulnerability during storm surges and flooding, while saving energy and providing a more comfortable patient environment.

3:00 pm – 4:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI For two decades, Massachusetts has been a pioneer in the development of code requirements that support energy conservation. Ian Finlayson will begin this session with a discussion of current efforts of the Energy Advisory Committee to continue this trend. In response to the higher performance demanded by codes as well as by building owners, building enclosure commissioning has become an effective tool for ensuring that exterior wall, roof and foundation assemblies perform as optimally as intended. Andrea DelGuidice of WJE and Brian Neely of Gale Associates will describe standards for the building enclosure commissioning process which form the basis for training and certification now available from the National Institute of Building Sciences.

Building Enclosure Performance for IAQ and Durability 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm 1.5 AIA | HSW | GBCI Control of air and moisture movement through the building enclosure can enhance indoor air quality while improving the performance and durability of the building enclosure. Results of indoor air quality research will be presented to demonstrate how airtight building enclosures reduce concentrations of indoor particulates. Because moisture in the building enclosure can also impact indoor air quality, as well as cause premature degradation of the building enclosure assemblies, the effect of airtightness on moisture in the building enclosure assemblies will be illustrated with case studies and a discussion on an innovative approach to
