Course Description
Attend this course and learn how the building commissioning process can be applied cost-effectively to new construction and to existing facilities, with a strong emphasis on existing facilities applications. In this introductory course, you will learn the fundamentals of the commissioning process through each step of a new construction project from pre-design to occupancy and operations. You will also learn how the application of the commissioning process in existing facilities differs from new construction. Learn about the benefits of commissioning and gain an appreciation for how the process can improve the built environment, reduce environmental impacts through responsible resource utilization, improve the quality of design and construction, and raise the professional reputation of the entire commissioning team. We will discuss commissioning documentation, including an overview of commissioning specifications for new construction. You will take away compelling information and case studies that demonstrate the value of investing in the commissioning process.

Each attendee receives a copy of ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005, The Commissioning Process.

ASHRAE Returns to Chicago for Winter Conference and AHR EXPO

Chicago, with one of the most recognizable skylines in the United States, has long-standing status as a livable urban center. That the city has stood the test of time makes it the perfect backdrop for this year?s ASHRAE Winter Conference theme: Sustainable Urban Design: Engineering Tomorrow?Today.

The Palmer House Hilton will once again host ASHRAE January 24 ? 28, with the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo taking place Jan. 26-28 at McCormick Place. The conference promises to be a great way to kick off the new year, with opportunities to interact with colleagues, learn technical information, and hear Keynote Speaker Chris Luebkeman of Arup speak on sustainability and thoughtful design and Technical Plenary speaker Adrian Bejan, Ph.D., explain technical evolution through ?constructal theory? which he says can predict how everything flows through time and space.

The technical program highlights the conference theme and will feature presentations on energy conservation, indoor environmental quality, sustainability efforts and more that will help you earn your PDHs. Seeking to create additional value for Expo and Conference attendees, ASHRAE is launching ?Wednesday Welcome,? at which all ASHRAE technical program sessions on Jan. 28 take place at McCormick Place. The ?Wednesday Welcome? includes 18 hands-on, applications-type programs, held from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., leaving the afternoon open to tour the Expo with more than 1,850 exhibits covering a world of equipment, systems, components and technology for the building industry.   Admission to the ?Wednesday Welcome? is included with your full ASHRAE Winter Conference registration or you can purchase a ticket for the full day for $99.

You can also earn PDHs and CEUs at Professional Development Seminars and Short Courses brought to you by the ASHRAE Learning Institute.

Networking opportunities and chances to see Chicago are plentiful at the ASHRAE Winter Conference. Meet with old friends at the Welcome Party, Presidents Luncheon and Member?s Night Out.  Technical tours of the city take you to the Intercontinental Hotel and The Art Institute of Chicago and you can see mansions and temples of the city, or take a cooking class on one of the general tours.
