ASHRAE Co-Sponsors Code Summit in November
Policymakers, builders, designers and code officials experience both enthusiasm and apprehension as the industry makes works to understand the contemporary landscape, uncover avoidable pitfalls and seize the opportunity of high-performing, 21st century buildings.
ASHRAE is co-sponsoring a one-day summit, Nov. 13, San Francisco, Calif., along with the U.S. Green Building Council, that dives deeper into green building codes and best practice and familiarizes a diverse community of building professionals with emerging regulations regarding sustainable buildings.
Of special interest to ASHRAE members is session CS03 - Model Codes - Green: IgCC, 189.1 and LEED, which provides a technical overview of the International Green Construction Code (including ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings), and a few of the related and major changes to the LEED® rating systems. Speaking in the session is Dennis Stanke, ASHRAE Fellow, chair of the Standard 189.1 committee, application engineer, Trane Co.
Another session of interest is CS07 - Implementation: Architecture, Engineering, Construction: What's different for licensed professionals in a green codes world? The session reviews the new risks, responsibilities and opportunities for architects and engineers in today’s world where green is slowly but surely becoming code. Speaking in that session is ASHRAE member Molly McGuire, who served as ASHRAE’s 2008 New Face of Engineering, and is senior engineer, Taylor Engineering.
