HVAC Design Level l (MENA)

  • 29 Jan 2023
  • Dubai, UAE Level l | 29-31 January 2023


Course Description

This course will not only increase your HVAC knowledge, but it will also accelerate the rate at which you will increase your knowledge in the future.

Achieving energy-efficient building performance that provides cooling comfort for occupants and meets the needs of building owners begins with system design.  If the design is flawed, performance will suffer, and owner objectives will not be satisfied.

ASHRAE offers a solution to improve design practices. Whether a designer, or facility manager, a recent graduate or an experienced professional who has taken on new design responsibilities, it is critical to combine the basic understanding of current standards with the application of new technologies to achieve success. Without a basic understanding of how systems perform in real-world environments and knowledge of which design option are available, engineers are ill equipped to meet with the ever-increasing challenges of their positions.

This training is highly interactive, laptops or notebook computers are strongly encouraged.

    HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials (MENA)

    HVAC Design: Level I—Essentials (MENA) provides intensive, practical guidance that accelerates attendee transformation into effective members of a design, construction, or facilities maintenance team. The training has been customized to consider the special design requirements of the Middle East.

     This 3-day HVAC Design: Level I—Essentials (MENA) training program provides real-world experience based on ASHRAE standards to HVAC designers and others involved in the delivery of HVAC services in the MENA region. Attendees will gain practical design skills and knowledge that can be put to immediate use. Developed by industry-leading professionals selected by ASHRAE and customized for the Middle East, Africa and parts of Asia, the training provides the fundamental and technical aspects needed to design and maintain HVAC systems.

    Course Objectives:

    • Calculate heating and cooling loads to ensure right sizing of equipment and minimizing energy use while still providing for human comfort.
    • Learn the basics of psychrometrics and explain the basics of hydronic and air system design and how these systems directly impact building efficiency and performance.
    • Explain HVAC controls and building automation systems as they relate to occupant health and comfort as well as building system optimization.
    • Explain the basics of hydronic and air system design and how these systems directly impact building efficiency and performance.
    • Describe different HVAC equipment and systems.
    • Discuss system selection and its correlation to sustainable building design.

    Who Should Attend:

    • Engineers new to the HVAC industry, including recent engineering graduates lacking practical experience.
    • Facilities managers involved in new construction or major renovation projects.
    • Technicians who would like to gain design knowledge.
    • Architects who want to understand HVAC system design.

    How Your Firm Will Benefit
