ASHRAE's satellite brodcast focuses on IAQ for sustainable buildings

What’s lean and green and clean all over? Your next sustainable building project and its indoor air quality, thanks to ASHRAE’s upcoming satellite broadcast. The program, “Clean, Lean, and Green – IAQ for Sustainable Buildings,” will take place April 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. EDT.

The free broadcast, sponsored by ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will challenge the building community to use good IAQ practices to create a more sustainable built environment. The program will highlight guidance from the publication IAQ Guide: Best Practices for Design, Construction, and Commissioning, developed collaboratively by ASHRAE, AIA, BOMA, EPA, SMACNA and USGBC.

“Saving energy in buildings is paramount, and everyone in the buildings industry must do all they can to ensure sustainability in their projects,” says Dave Shugars, Chair of the Satellite Broadcast committee. “But sustainability must never come at the expense of good indoor air quality. Proper operation and maintenance of buildings must be combined with enhanced IAQ practices to ensure healthy, productive indoor environments.”

Participants who complete the participant reaction form online at the week following the broadcast may be awarded three PDH credits.

The broadcast presenters and their topics are:

 - Martha Hewett, Director of Research, Center for Energy & Environment (Minneapolis): Practical, Proven Strategies to Deliver Better IAQ

- Hoy Bohanon, P.E., Owner and Manager of Bohanon Engineering, PLLS (Winston-Salem, NC): Improving Your IAQ and Reducing Your Energy Costs through HVAC Design

 - Barney Burroughs, Owner and CEO of Building Wellness Consultancy, Inc. (Atlanta): Keeping Buildings Clean: Avoiding and Building Control of Contaminants to Attain and Maintain IAQ Acceptability

 - George DuBose, Certified General Contractor, Liberty Building Forensics Group (Orlando, FL): Avoiding Costly IAQ Problems in the Building Envelope

- John McFarland, P.E., Director of Engineered Systems, WorkingBuildings, LLC (Atlanta): Integrating Good IAQ into the Design & Construction Process
