ATLANTA – Registration for the free 2014 ASHRAE Webcast, “Buildings in Balance: IEQ and Energy Efficiency,” is now open at www.ashrae.org/ieqwebcast.
The webcast will broadcast live on April 17, 2014, from 1-4 p.m. EDT.
“The webcast will identify the link between energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality (IEQ) through the integrated design process,” Andy Cochrane, chair of ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee, which oversees the event, said. “Participants will be able to recognize the importance of the four cornerstones of IEQ and explain how system selection can benefit energy efficiency and IEQ. The presenters will describe best practices for performance measurement protocols and explain the role of post occupancy evaluation in fine-tuning building performance. Viewers will also learn about the common design, commissioning and operational pitfalls of IEQ. ‘Buildings in Balance’ will describe how energy and efficiency can be achieved, without compromising IEQ.”
Webcast presenters are:
- 2013-14 ASHRAE President William P. “Bill” Bahnfleth, Ph.D., P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, ASME Fellow, professor of Architectural Engineering , director of Indoor Environmental Center, The Pennsylvania State University
- James W. Bochat, president, Commissioning Concepts, Phoenix, Ariz.
- Tim McGinn, P.Eng., ASHRAE-Certified High Performance Building Design Professional, principal, DIALOG, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
- Jerry M. Sipes, Ph.D., P.E., vice president of engineering, Price Industries, Inc., Suwanee, Ga.
The IEQ Webcast has been approved for three Learning Units (LUs) by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and three Continuing Education Hours (CEs) by GBCI. The state of New York also recognizes AIA course approval.
