ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standard 189.1 which offers guidance on the code language for high-performance buildings. The standard is based on energy-use and indoor-environment-quality sections. It presents a minimum standard for buildings demonstrating high performance. It requires a building that uses less energy and convenient for occupancy.
