Design Sustainable and Energy Efficient Buildings


7:30 AM    Registration
Complementary Coffee, juice & pastries

8:00 AM    ClimateMaster (40107443) –
Geothermal Heating and Cooling “A Renewable Energy Technology” (AIAGEOTHERMAL)
1 AIA HSW Speaker: Mr. Gene Slavens
(405) 509-3300

This course will cover several critical topics surrounding our industry today in the world of geothermal heating and cooling. You will learn the basic principles of the geothermal heat pump technology and we will discuss some of the misconceptions that often arise in today’s market. You will walk away with an understanding of how and why geothermal heat pumps systems are so incredibly energy efficient and gain a general understanding of how the four basic systems are designed and work for each job application. This course will elaborate on the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system and explain how it not only gives you the high energy efficiency savings but how this system also gives the owner/user significant savings during the initial installation of the system while providing high energy efficiency and capturing tax incentives for the total cost of the hybrid/geothermal heat pump system. In closing, I will demonstrate to you in a case study of actual energy consumption differences shown between geothermal heat pump systems and VRF (variable flow refrigerant) system on the National Headquarters Office Building or ASHRAE in Atlanta, GA

9:10 AM    PHP Systems/Design (J490) –
Applications in Sustainable Technology of Rooftop Equipment (AIAPHP101)

This course provides an overview of rooftop support systems and includes discussions on:

  • Consequences of inadequate support apparatuses
  • How to properly manage dead weight on roofing systems without penetrating the roof, while allowing for increased load distribution and flexibility
  • How support systems successfully manage loads, as well as thermal movement and vibration
  • Selection of proper support components, assemblies and applications, and the importance of their overall performance to the roofing system
  • Support system design and installation process

10:15AM RoxulInc  (ROXGEN2012)-
1 AIA HSW Speaker: Mr. Thomas C. Whipple
