Main Presentation - 7:00 pm - The (un) Ethical Engineer: A Study in Principle and Practice

 

Technical Session Highlights:

As more and more jurisdictions and building owners are requiring higher levels of LEED certification for their projects, design teams are looking beyond traditional HVAC solutions to provide the energy efficiency needed to maximize LEED points while maintaining occupant comfort and safety.  In-slab radiant heating systems have enjoyed popularity both here in the United States and abroad for years.  Now, with the availability of improved control systems and better understanding within the design and construction community, the same concept can be applied to radiant cooling as an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution.  This program will cover the following topics:

  • Radiant Cooling Heat Transfer Fundamentals
  • Radiant Cooling Performance/Capacity
  • Typical Construction Methods
  • Case Studies

Attendees will gain an understanding of how in-slab radiant cooling systems can be used as part of an energy-efficient design solution to maximize Energy and Atmosphere credits for LEED certification, and see examples of how this has been accomplished on projects both here in the United States and abroad

Main Presentation Highlights:

The integrity of the HVAC industry is dependent on sound technical design, reliable products, skilled construction practice and consistent maintenance and operation. But another critical element that is sometimes overlooked is professional ethics. As members within the HVAC industry engineers, contractors, architects, manufacturers, vendors and building owners are expected to exhibit the highest standard of honesty and integrity to safeguard the confidence that the public has in us.  In this very competitive climate, however, it is sometimes tempting to "bend the rules" to some degree in order to gain an advantage over competition or to simply get the job done on time. But how much is too much? Is there a clearly defined line between ethical practice and "just the way things are done?"
