Healthcare Facilities: Best Practices for HVAC Design and Operation (code 60)
8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

Based on the ASHRAE book HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics, this seminar introduces many unique and up-to-date healthcare design considerations and applications. The seminar covers Chapters 1-4, 6-11, and 13-16. Common medical terminology is introduced, and terminology differences between the medical and engineering fields are examined. Infection particles and their transport mechanisms are covered, followed by infection control methods. A major emphasis is placed on the necessary considerations for various diagnostic and treatment and support areas. The second half of the seminar focuses on air-distribution designs for surgical and patient rooms. Various control and energy efficiency techniques for cooling and heating plants are presented along with O&M and other commissioning topics. Smoke control and life safety best practices and application issues finish the seminar.

Energy Modeling Best Practices and Applications (code 61)
8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

This seminar covers the fundamentals of building energy modeling and explains how to use modeling to guide design decisions, with an emphasis on HVAC. Integrating modeling into the design process from the programming stage through post-occupancy and measurements and verification will be discussed. The seminar explains modeling principles and provides modeling tips related to the building envelope, plug loads, lighting systems, and HVAC systems. Concluding with guidance on model calibration and the use of energy models for measurement and verification, this seminar also includes case studies and links to valuable modeling resources.

NEW! Introduction to Building Decarbonization (code 62)
8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

This course describes the primary sources for carbon emissions in buildings and explains the key drivers for decarbonization. Carbon accounting options in buildings, current offset strategies, and electrification technology applications are discussed. Case studies will be offered to demonstrate real-world applications as well as US and world statistics.

Instructor: Drury Crawley, Ph.D., AIA, Fellow ASHRAE, BEMP

NEW! Fundamentals of Decarbonization Design Systems and Equipment Applications (code 63)
12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

This course provides an overview of the topic of building decarbonization with a focus on building heating systems with associated HVAC technologies in new construction. Carbon emissions associated with technologies found in various system designs in buildings are discussed. The course covers the options for low, and no carbon emissions and electrification alternatives.

Instructor: Artorius Reyes, Member ASHRAE

Laboratory Design: The Basics and Beyond (code 64)
3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

A comprehensive overview of HVAC design for laboratories is examined in the course. The course focuses on the essential elements of the design process that are unique to laboratory HVAC systems. Topics include planning steps; risk assessment; determining exhaust/supply requirements; load calculation; pressure mapping; evaluating system options; layout of ducts and rooms; sizing primary air systems; designing exhaust stacks; sustainability in laboratories and control strategies. Example problems and case studies will be presented.

Instructor: John Varley, P.E., Member ASHRAE, HBDP, LEED® AP

Updated! Energy Management Best Practices (code 65)
3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

Buildings use 40% of U.S. energy, of which one-third can be cost-effectively saved. To achieve this goal, building professionals can utilize energy management—an orderly process in which managers use resources at their disposal to accomplish clear, energy-saving objectives. This course weaves together energy management principles from case studies and best practices of the standard ISO 50001, and the ASHRAE Handbook—HVAC Applications, ENERGY STAR® guidelines, and ASHRAE/IES Standard 100-2018, Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings. This course will provide a gateway to applicable industry guidelines, standards, other ASHRAE ALI courses, and publicly available resources to the end-users and practitioners. It will summarize the available energy management best practices related to sustainability goals and greenhouse gas emission reduction. The course will also overview water efficiency and help establish the links between energy and water use.

Instructors: Eric Yang, P.E., Member ASHRAE and Richard Pearson, P.E., Fellow/Life Member ASHRAE

NEW! Operation of Buildings with Decarbonization as a Metric (code 66)
8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

The course provides an overview of building operations where low, and no carbon emissions is a focus. The development of baseline metrics and accounting strategies to minimize carbon emissions are discussed. The course covers building performance standards and best practices within the industry. Discussion includes available rating systems, including ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient program, for comparing and prioritizing building operational improvements.

Instructor: Doug Cochrane, P.Eng., Member ASHRAE
