Energy efficiency in food processing: cooling towers and steam systems

Join expert Tom Tucker as he discusses cooling tower and steam system efficiency opportunities. He introduces a graphical tool that makes better estimates of true power consumption using simple current measurements. You will be able to use these power estimation techniques on any electric motor, including those on cooling systems.

HVAC technology enhancements for energy conservation

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 retrofit target. Even though this percentage depends on climate, building type, and building usage, HVAC still has one of the largest impacts on energy use. Ryan Hoger discusses a variety of energy-saving HVAC technologies and optimization considerations.

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

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.

Integrative design process for high-performance teams

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.

Waterproofing existing basements from the inside

For years, the question of waterproofing from the inside has dogged Peter. He kept hearing about all sorts of coatings that could “negative-side” waterproof, but didn’t know how to compare the anecdotes to building science. In this session, Peter cuts through the hype and the misdirection of standardized testing and figures out what works, what doesn’t and why. Check it out to see what stands up to the Wingnut Water Test!

Ductless heat pump applications for high performance homes

During this session, we will discuss the advancements in ductless heat pumps and the application for high-performance homes. Learn about the concept of high performance homes and the application of residential variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems to meet their design and efficiency requirements. We will review the scale upon which high performance homes are measured, the process to properly design an HVAC system for these homes, and ventilation and dehumidification strategies that are required in low load homes.

Part III: attics and roofs that don’t work and why

Taking building investigations and turning them into building science puzzles is fun and informative. In Part II, we learned how to configure high performance attics and roofs. What can we learn from roofs and attics that have had problems? We can learn about tolerances attics and roofs have for heat and moisture management and quite a bit about how to and not to retrofit existing attics and roofs.

Part II: attic and roof configurations that work and why

Using the building science and building code for attics and roofs, we will work through which roof and attic configurations work and why. Peter will work with a local high performance builder and roof/attic mock-ups to get into the nitty-gritty of materials, sequencing, and trades interaction for high performance attics and roofs.

Housing disruption realities, crises, and transformations: are you ready?

Virtually every major industry has experienced, or is in the process of experiencing, massive disruption. Housing has been able to sit on the sidelines with its first-cost dominated business model and uniquely dis-aggregated industry, but not for much longer. That’s because there are three new realities setting the stage for disruption, five crises making disruption an imperative, and four transformations that will drive disruption in an industry totally resistant to change. Within this larger disruption context, high performance homes will play an increasingly critical role that needs to be fully integrated. Will you be ready?
