Course Level:           300 (Application/Implementation)
Category:                  Project Systems and Energy Impacts

Outdoor Air (i.e. ventilation) is critical to ensuring a productive and healthy indoor environment and is required by building codes and industry standards and is worthy of its own LEED 2009 Credit. In addition, unmanaged Outdoor Air is wasteful and expensive to condition in many regions of the world. This course demonstrates the advantages of measuring and controlling outdoor air intakes versus the traditional approach of relying upon a fixed outdoor air damper position, provides guidelines for the design and resulting control of the airflow monitors, provides a selection criteria for outdoor airflow monitors, and identifies how to apply for the LEED 2009, NC, IEQ Credit 1 – Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring point using the LEED Online Template.

The goal of this course is to promote the application of outdoor air monitoring and control to improve a building’s indoor environment, pressurization control and energy use.

The target audience for this course is consulting engineers, contractors, owners, facility managers, code officials, architects and LEED project managers with a basic knowledge of HVAC systems.

Learning Objectives:
1.           Compare HVAC Systems With and Without Outdoor Airflow Measurement & Control
2.           Design and Apply Outdoor Airflow Measurement and Control Systems
3.           Prepare and Apply for Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring LEED Point (LEED2009 IEQ- Credit 1)
4.           Specify Outdoor Airflow Monitors

1216 Wheat Street Building D

AIA Greater Columbia is joining USGBC-SC Chapter Midlands Branch to take an in-depth look at today’s High Efficiency Toilets with particular focus on Dual-Flush, ‘Siphonic’ and ‘Washdown’ toilet technologies.  MaP (Maximum Performance) testing analysis, Watersense product labeling, and HET requirements will all be reviewed to provide a foundation in performance and water efficiency knowledge.  Several case studies utilizing Dual-Flush installations showing improved performance coupled with substantial water savings will provide a working understanding on the benefits of incorporating this type of water saving technology into any project. 

Learning Objectives

Discuss historical trends and describe the different toilet technologies.

Describe today’s High Efficiency Toilets with particular focus on Dual-Flush.

Compare and Contrast ‘Siphoic’ and ‘Washdown’ toilet technologies.

Explain MaP (Maximum Performance) Testing:  improvements to flush testing and its shortcomings.

Describe Watersense product labeling and HET requirements.

List several case studies utilizing Dual-Flush installations showing improved performance coupled with substantial water savings.

Explain how WaterSense HET  Dual-Flush toilets can contribute toward a project earning LEED certification.

Describe trends in the marketplace, moving toward localized HET standards/ordinances and what the future may hold.

Cost for members is $10.  Non-Members is $15.
