Integrative design process for high-performance teams

September 23  •  , Online course
Available credits: AIA, GBCI
The Integrative Design Process (IDP) has the potential to radically change the way building design and construction decisions are made and improve project success and efficacy. However, integrative design projects don’t often succeed due to poor team structure. How can you create a successful integrative design team? We help you differentiate between traditional design processes and an integrative project process. We offer a sharp, new understanding of team integration and provide clear steps to optimize facilitation of project teams. You will hear from a successful project’s team members and stakeholders as they present principles of high-performing teams, potential challenges, and offer tips to a successful integrative design process.

HVAC technology enhancements for energy conservation

September 25  •  Holiday Inn Eau Claire, 4751 Owen Ayres Ct., Eau Claire, WI 54701
Available credits: AFE, AIA, BOC, BOMI, NATE, WI-DSPS
Do you know how to get the largest energy savings in your commercial buildings? HVAC as a single system is 45-70% of a building’s energy use—making it the biggest energy user and a major retro-fit target. For comparison, lighting is usually just 10-30%. Even though these percentages depend on climate, building type and building usage, HVAC still has one of the largest impacts on energy use. Ryan Hoger will discuss the newest energy saving HVAC technologies, improvements and alternative solutions, so you can initiate change in commercial buildings.

Get inside the Building Automation System: Your building's brain

October 8  •  Online course
Available credits: AIA, BOC, BOMI
The central hub of your building that tells equipment what to do, the same way your brain tells your hands what to do, is the Building Automation System (BAS). Did you know the BAS can provide benefits in three key areas: environmental, comfort, and financial? Join us as we take a look at modern commercial BAS basics including architecture, networks, controllers, programming tools, and user interface. You will discover how to evaluate and select a BAS that meets your needs. We will also make sure you are up to speed on the latest BAS trends including ASHRAE guide 36, automated fault detection and diagnostics, mobile applications, and even IoT-based BAS.
