A newly designed website for ASHRAE’s High Performing Buildings (HPB) Magazine serves as a one-stop resource for building professionals.
www.hpbmagazine.org, recently revamped, provides case studies and other resources that help the building industry learn about the benefits of high performance. Targeted at building owners, facility managers, architects and engineers, HPB Magazine was launched in 2007 and features working case studies of exemplary buildings developed by leading practitioners in the sustainability movement. Also included is a “lessons learned” section in each article where building designers and operators explain what went right, what went wrong, how problems were resolved and what could have been done better.
The redesigned site features an updated, modern design (to match the slick look of the magazine and the buildings it covers), a showcase of the case studies featured in the magazine’s past issues, categorization of the case studies by building type, and the ability to comment on these case studies. Users also can search for buildings and products by type.
ASHRAE members receive a complimentary digital subscription to the quarterly magazine.
