ASHRAE Offers Sustainability Satellite Broadcast

Information about building sustainability principles, practices, and emerging concepts will be presented in this satellite broadcast and webcast

 

A satellite broadcast is being offered by ASHRAE to fulfill its goal of promoting building sustainability as a means to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable environment while simultaneously limiting the impact on the earth’s natural resources.

Information about building sustainability principles, practices, and emerging concepts will be presented in the free April 19, 2006, satellite broadcast and Webcast, Sustainability and the Building Environment. The program is sponsored by ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee (CTTC).

“This broadcast will benefit all of the team members involved in the design, construction, start-up, and operation phases of a facility,” said Jon Christopher Larry, chair of CTTC. “Viewers will be given information and sources to assist them when they are faced with the situation where a green design must be done. The green building industry will also benefit from the engineering input from ASHRAE.”

The speakers for the broadcast will provide guidance on how to practice green building design. They are: Joe Van Belleghem, president, BuildGreen Developments, Victoria, Canada; Hal Levin, Fellow ASHRAE, research architect, Building Ecology Research Group, Santa Cruz, CA; Jean Lupinacci, director, ENERGY STAR commercial and industrial branch, Climate Protection Partnerships Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Kevin Hydes, P.E., P.Eng., president and CEO, Keen Engineering, Montreal, Canada; and Malcolm Lewis, PhD, P.E., president, CTG Energetics, Irvine, CA.

The broadcast will be similar to the April 2005 Mold in the Building Environment Broadcast/Webcast viewed by some 16,000 viewers at 1,700 locations.
