About The Magazine

High Performing Buildings Magazine (HPB) was launched in 2008 to encourage innovative design, construction and operation of buildings that achieve actual performance targets for energy use and environmental quality. That effort has been successful in helping bring the conversation on high performing buildings into the mainstream. Its purpose fulfilled, effective July 1, 2020, HPB will cease the digital and print issues of the magazine and will bring that focus into the pages of ASHRAE Journal.

Upcoming ASHRAE Journal articles will focus on resiliency at different scales (building, street, city), operations and maintenance considerations for high performing buildings, case studies and more.

HPB Newsletter will be published monthly and this website will continue on with updated content.

Thank you for your support for the last 12 years. We look forward to sharing best design practices and innovative building technologies with you.
