Learn How To Increase Building Efficiency and Meet Changing Building Requirements

Join RTM expert engineers for AIA Continuing Education monthly webinars aimed at educating the architecture and commercial real estate community on new engineering processes and best practices.


Accomplishing Your Sustainability
Goals – DE (1 HSW credit)

Tuesday, July 26, 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PT

This webinar addresses the need for buildings to accommodate the changing demands in an environment of growing energy costs. Examining various sustainable programs that achieve energy efficiencies in new construction and existing buildings, the web broadcast will also focus on keeping occupant satisfaction at the forefront. Participants will learn the benefits of each program and how they can be applied in the design and construction processes to realize a more holistic and sustainable project approach.

Top MEP Considerations When Designing For
Elevator Systems – DE (1 HSW credit)

Tuesday, August 30, 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PT

As the built environment is trending towards urbanization and less on suburban sprawl, a greater need for maximizing land usage has arisen. The most efficient way to accomplish this is to build up instead of out. Building taller requires architectural teams to design vertical transportation systems that move occupants safely and efficiently. The purpose of this webinar is to focus on the design elements relevant to MEP/FP systems necessary to allow these vertical systems to operate properly in all conditions.

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)
Systems 101 – DE (1 HSW credit)

Tuesday, September 27, 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PT

VRF systems have gained traction worldwide as air conditioning (AC) can be found in small, medium and large buildings, both commercial and residential. Learn in greater detail the use and application of this technology and why it has become an industry leader around the world for use in AC systems.

Building Envelope Design and
Insulation – DE (1 HSW credit)

Tuesday, October 25, 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PT

Readily known as what separates the interior and exterior of a structure, the building envelope can greatly impact the performance and efficiency of the building’s systems. This webinar aims to describe the different components of the building envelope and techniques that can be used to insulate in order to improve energy efficiency. The webinar will also help participants more fully understand current energy code requirements.
