ASHRAE to host Tech Hour on commissioning buildings

On April 1, ASHRAE premiered Tech Hour #3: Commissioning, presented by Jay Enck, M.E., Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer of Commissioning at Green Building Solutions, Inc. and Reinhard Seidl, P.E., Principal at Taylor Engineering LLP.  

The Tech Hour will analyze the impact of climate change and evolving technology on the commissioning of new and existing buildings. Viewers will learn about evaluating building characteristics and usage patterns that affect building energy footprint and occupant productivity, in addition to data presentation and communications to facility managers and O&M staff. Viewer learning points include:

  • Understanding why commissioning existing building stock is so important.
  • Important steps to reducing energy consumption.
  • How new technologies help in implementing higher systems efficiency and ongoing Cx with cloud-based documentation methods and energy monitoring.

One PDH will be available to viewers upon completion of a survey link in ASHRAE 365. Due to the cancellation of many in-person ASHRAE Chapter meetings and the DL program, the PDH period for Tech Hours has been extended through June 30, 2021.  To view ASHRAE Tech Hour videos, download ASHRAE 365 on the App Store or Google Play.
