Last Week Daniel Coakley of IES spoke on the topic of “Modelling Natural ventilation in the IESVE: Case studies & Research Outlook” at a half day seminar, organised by Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), for researchers, designers, engineers & architects.
This CIT Technical Seminar: Ventilative Cooling & Overheating Risk was organised in collaboration with IEA-EBC Annex 62 and presented state of the art utilisation of ventilation for reducing cooling energy demand and addressing the risk of overheating in low energy buildings.
In his presentation, Daniel covered;
Great news for all our US AIA members – the majority of our training courses have been registered with the AIA CES program – allowing you to gain AIA CES Learning Hours when you undertake them. Twelve courses also count towards the new mandatory Sustainable Design credits.
Our FREE online introduction to IES is included in this – providing 1 LU hour and also counting towards the mandatory Sustainable Design credit. Register here to attend.
Our expertise in sustainable design, both in creating analysis software and providing expert consultancy services, helps educate on how to leave a greener footprint within all stages of the design process. The courses include sessions on solar analysis, artifical/daylighting design, and natural ventilation. See our websiteÂ for more information.
We commend the AIA Board for taking notice and making sustainable design a mandatory course requirement through 2012. This initiative shows the importance of the growing emissions challenges within
the industry, and the need to solve them immediately.
