Human Centric Lighting & Technology Brown Bag Lunch


07 January 2013 (Monday) @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location:  Maui County Business Resource Center (MCBRC) in the Maui Mall

Human Centric Lighting is also called human factors in lighting, biophilia and other terms. It is for good circadian rhythms, visual acuity, mood, performance and energy saving – sustainability. The new generation of tunable LED products can dim and can color tone from warm white to cool white, which is so good for Human Centric Lighting. Office, school and hospital case studies will be discussed.

Many of these tunable LED products have the same amount of light and efficiency and cost about as much as standard LED products. This lighting cannot only cut electric costs for lighting in half, but it may also improve worker satisfaction, worker productivity, student performance and retail sales, which can dwarf electrical savings. Come to this talk, which discusses this next big step in lighting, which may become as significant as Edison creating the light bulb. This is different material than what Stan will present for Hawaii Energy on January 8.

All MCBRC workshops are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are asked to bring their own lunches. The workshop is from 12 noon to 1pm. For more information or to reserve limited seating, call the MCBRC at (808) 873-8247.

Subject:   Amendments to State of Hawaii Board of Engineers, Architects, Surveyors and Landscape Architects Rules:      

Dear AIA Maui Members,

We have been advised by Amy Blagriff of the AIA Hawaii State Council that the Council is advocating for a proposed amendment to the Board of Engineers, Architects, Surveyors and Landscape Architects rules to allow architectural interns to take the NCARB architectural licensing exam as soon as they graduate from a NAAB accredited architectural degree program.

This is something we have discussed at AIA Maui meetings off and on for several years and I urge you to send your letter in support of the proposed amendment.  Letters should be sent to:

James Kobashigawa, Executive Officer
Board of Professional Engineers, Architects, Surveyors and Landscape Architects
State of Hawaii, Professional and Vocational Licensing Division.
P.O. Box 3469
Honolulu HI  96801

You will find a sample letter which outlines the issues you may want to address in your letter in the AIA Maui blog.

Sincerely,
Marie Kimmey AIA ME

SBRRB Mtg - review ARE concurrent with IDP

Small Business Regulatory Review Board (SBRRB) will meet on 10 December 2012 (Monday) to review the draft rules to allow ARE concurrent with IDP.  The AIA Hawaii State Council strongly encourages members to attend in support of the draft rules.

AIA Hawaii State Council Support Letter

From Amy Blagriff, Executive Vice President AIA Honolulu/ The Center for Architecture:

Please mark your calendars. Dec 10. I just got word that the  Small Business Regulatory Review Board (SBRRB) will meet on DEC 10 to review the draft rules to allow ARE concurrent with IDP.  It would be great to have a number of firm principals and candidates to attend this hearing. We have been working for years to affect this change.

Note the role of the SBRRB is to consider impact to small businesses and recommend rule changes to Governor’s office for final approval.  Thus your testimony should speak to the candidates advantage but should also say how it is good for small business and good for Hawaii in an economic/greater public good sense. I will work to edit our previous testimony to add a paragraph which addresses the positive impact to business. It would be great for you to tell your personal story – how your firm and Hawaii’s economy would benefit.

Hawaii Energy Workshop on Maui

Financial Analysis of Energy Efficiency Projects
30 October 2012 (Tuesday)
Location:  Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Kahului
Cost:  $35

from EEFG:
It is much easier to secure funding for a proposed energy-saving project if all of the associated costs and benefits are properly quantified and the resulting financial return is compelling.  This workshop will cover several approaches to calculating a project's returns as well as the pros and cons of using various financial metrics when requesting capital.  By the end of the day, students will know how to model expected cash outflows and inflows over time, how to calculate a project's present value and other financial metrics, and how to generate compelling capital budgeting requests.  Credits:  AIA 6.0 HSW/SD, GBCI 6.0 CE (LEED).

DCAB Plan Review Fees

Effective 01 January 2013

HB 2553, HD2, SD2, Relating to Building Design for Persons with Disabilities
Act 277 (12)

Effective 01 January 2013, DCAB will charge a plan review fee applying to projects covered under Section 103-50, Hawaii Revised Statues (covering all State and County projects).  Most Federal and private projects are not covered.

The one-time fee is due when plans and specifications are initially submitted to DCAB for review.  The review fees shall be four-tenths of a percent (0.4%) for the first $500,000 of the estimated construction cost plus two-tenths of a percent (0.2%) of the estimated construction costs greater than $500,000 up to and including $2,000,000 plus two one-hundreths of a percent (0.02%) of the estimated construction costs over $2,000,000 except as follows:
  1. The minimum review fee for plans and specifications subject to accessibility guidelines under this section shall be $200;
  2. The disability and communications access board may limit the maximum review fee for plans and specifications of infrastructure projects or projects managed by private nonprofit entities to $3,000; and
  3. There shall be a $50 review fee for projects with plans and specifications that do not reflect any elements subject to accessibility guidelines under this section.

Examples of how to calculate the plan review fee:


Estimated construction costs = $250,000


0.4% x $250,000
=
$
1,000

Estimated construction costs = $1,500,000


0.4% x $500,000
=
$
2,000


0.2% x $1,000,000
=
$
2,000




$
4,000

Estimated construction costs = $5,000,000


0.4% x $500,000
=
$
2,000


0.2% x $1,500,000
=
$
3,000


0.02% x $3,000,000
=
$
600




$
5,600

DCAB will amend the Hawaii Administrative Rules Title 11, Chapters 216 and 217 to document plan review fee procedures.

Contact Francine Wai, Executive Director or Curtis Motoyama, Facility Access Coordinator at (808) 586-8121 for further information.
