is a senior engineer with Elara Energy Services. In addition to his
experience in MEP design, he has lectured in the mechanical
engineering department at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He
has received three first place Illinois ASHRAE excellence in
engineering awards. He holds a bachelor of science degree in
mechanical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology, a
bachelor of science degree in physics from Northeastern Illinois
University and a masters of science degree in mechanical engineering
from University of Illinois at Chicago.
as this university stayed ahead of the curve with its digital
library, designers harnessed the benefits of radiant heating and
cooling with the advantages of natural HVAC. With a building that
frequently employs hybrid or all-natural modes, readers and
researchers can enjoy lower-impact comfort to go with the sights and
sounds of Lake Michigan.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop.
