FEATURED PRESENTATION

Why Buildings Matter and the Role of ASHRAE 90.1

As our flagship standard for the minimum energy efficiency for buildings (except low-rise residential), ASHRAE 90.1 represents the Standard of Care for all certifying professionals serving the building industry. The latest version of that standard, 2016, contains dramatic changes that all certifying professionals should know. Attendees will gain a renewed perspective on the importance of buildings. Attendees will learn about the critical connections between building energy use and other social and environmental imperatives – such as available fuel supply, power trends, water use and availability, population growth, etc. Attendees will learn about critical energy, and environmental trends that will challenge the status quo building decision-making and help to prioritize delivered building performance. Attendees will learn about some of the most recent changes to 90.1, especially in those critical areas often overlooked by HVAC professionals – the building envelope provisions – as well as other changes. Attendees will be challenged to update their knowledge and understanding of the Standard and its role in delivering better buildings. The presenter has served over 15 years on the SSPC 90.1 development committee and remains an active participant in its development.

DISTINGUISHED LECTURER

R Christopher Mathis

President - Mathis Consulting Company

 

R. Christopher “Chris” Mathis has spent the past 30 years focusing on how buildings and building products perform – from energy efficiency to code compliance to sustainability and long-term performance durability.

Chris received his undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. He received a Master of Science in Architecture Studies from MIT, where his graduate work focused on energy use in buildings. He has served as a Scientist in the Insulation Technology Laboratory at the Owens-Corning Fiberglas Technical Center, was the Director of the Thermal Testing Laboratory for the National Association of Home Builders Research Center, and Director of Marketing for Architectural Testing, Inc., a private laboratory specializing in the performance of buildings and building products, particularly fenestration performance testing.

Chris is an active participant in Standards and Code development at ASHRAE, NFRC, ASTM and the ICC. He was a founding member and served for four years as the first Director of the National Fenestration Rating Council, the non-profit organization that developed the nation’s energy performance rating and labeling system for windows, doors and skylights.

Chris has been a member and active participant in ASTM committee E06 on Performance of Buildings since 1984. During his tenure at ASTM he has worked on numerous task groups and subcommittees developing a range of standards and test methods addressing window performance, window installation, thermal testing of windows, wall system performance and whole building performance. He currently chairs E06.51.11 addressing window installation standards. He is also a member of committee C16 on Insulation and E60 on Sustainability. Chris currently chairs the Built Environment Advisory Committee at ASTM.


Chris is a 30-year member of ASHRAE, where he has worked on window thermal test standards, national model codes for commercial buildings (ASHRAE 90.1), model codes for residential buildings (ASHRAE 90.2) and is the energy consultant to Standard 189.1 – ASHRAE’s model code for sustainable commercial buildings. He is also the energy consultant to the Chapter Technology Transfer Committee. Chris has been recognized as an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, conducting seminars on a variety of building science, energy efficiency and sustainability topics across the US and worldwide.
