Workshop Highlights Essentials of HVAC Design for High Performing Buildings
April 4, 2011

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Learning Institute presents an intensive, three-day workshop focusing on both the fundamental and technical aspects of HVAC design in commercial buildings, providing practical strategies for HVAC designers and others involved in delivery of HVAC services. HVAC Design Essentials: Tools for High Performance Building Designers takes place at ASHRAE Headquarters in Atlanta, Ga.

The workshop addresses the skill set that will be required by designers of the future; techniques to interact effectively with all design partners in an integrated design team; the economics of sustainable buildings; and the skills needed to design high-performance buildings, to name just a few.

The course is led by ASHRAE members Julia Keen and Joel Primeau, both are licensed engineers and ASHRAE Certified High Performance Building Design Professionals. Keen is associate professor of architectural engineering and construction science at Kansas State University, Manhattan. Primeau is director of sustainable design at Genivar, in Ontario, Canada.

In addition to updates on the most cutting-edge green HVAC&R tools and technology, attendees receive a copy of Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings Except Low Rise Residential, and the 189.1 User’s Manual. Professional Development Hours and Continuing Education Units are also available.
