park. His team has performed modeling for more than 100 million square feet of facility space, from pre-design through post-occupancy, and has studied issues such as energy use, light, airflow, and thermal bridging and has performed evaluations of thermal characteristics of facades and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. He has also led post-occupancy testing and monitoring, which help verify the effectiveness of the energy model. Mr. Tuluca has contributed to various codes and standards, including the New York State Energy Code, the New York State Green Building Tax Credit, and the ASHRAE Standard 90.1. He has studied the relationship between code compliance, LEED compliance, and actual performance of buildings. He is the lead author of Energy Efficient Design and Construction for Commercial Buildings (1997).
