Accomplishing Your Sustainability
Goals – DE (1 HSW credit)
Course Number: 20160708
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)
Course Number: ELEV2016DE
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)
Course Number: VRF2016DE
All over the world, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems have taken over as the market share for air conditioning 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)
Course Number: BE2016DE
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.
Current Lighting Controls
with LED – DE (1 LU credit)
Course Number: LIGHTDE2016
Lighting control in buildings is critical to maintain proper lighting levels during normal, emergency and egress situations. Learn current lighting control strategies available including the benefits, costs, and applications of each. Furthermore, attendees will understand how lighting control is affected by emerging LED technology.
