Distinguished Lecture: Effective Room Air Distribution

Register for the first Distinguished Lecture of the year!

On October 3rd, join ASHRAE Toronto Chapter Student Activity and Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) for the distinguished lecture session. Dan Int-Hout as he speaks about effective air distribution and under floor air systems (UFAD). Dan will discuss the new LEED v 2.2 and some of the significant changes that have resulted in Air Distribution, IAQ and Comfort.


Expectations of building occupants are on the rise, designers must be aware of the conflicts between first cost economics, occupant productivity and life cycle costs. Buildings that do not meet the needs of the occupants often result in expensive redesign or worse, result in lawsuits against all parties involved. While most overhead air distribution has been able to provide comfort at a low cost, building owners are choosing an under floor air system for flexibility, connectivity and sustainability. This session will discuss raised floor and UFAD systems.
