This course will focus on the 2021 AIA COTE Top 10 awarded project Market One. The Market One project is a 120-year old manufacturing building originally designed to manufacture threshing machines that has recently been converted into a high-performance, sustainable, multi-tenant office building in Des Moines, Iowa. Market One was designed to achieve NetZero energy usage via a combination of high-performance, fluid-based HVAC systems, and renewable energy sources.

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Gain an understanding of how State and Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credit funding vehicles were incorporated into this sustainable adaptive reuse project. 

  • Gain an understanding of variable refrigerant flow HVAC systems and the positive impact of utilizing these types of systems in historic preservation and/or adaptive reuse projects. 

  • Gain an understanding of how renewable energy sources were evaluated and incorporated into this project in an urban setting. 

  • Gain an understanding of a design approach for this project that fully incorporates sustainability without violating the principles of the historic preservation tax credit programs.
