Radical Energy Reductions Through Ventilation Standards Reform

When: Wednesday – June 21, 2017 From 4:30pm - 6:30pm
Where: Glumac - 707 Wilshire Blvd., 23rd Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90017

The single largest opportunity for energy conservation and savings in future building design is reducing code-required airflows to spaces where they don't affect patient outcomes and safety. Kaiser Permanente team will share what they learned from 3 years of deep research into the standards' origins and requirements to help audiences to prepare for the changes in ways that will deliver big savings in energy costs and greenhouse gases for years to come.

Gear up for a very different future! Key ventilation standards adopted by ASHRAE, FGI, the Joint Commission, CMS and others drive 60% to 75% of typical hospital energy use. The single largest opportunity for energy conservation and savings in future building design is reducing code-required airflows to spaces where they don't affect patient outcomes and safety. There are big opportunities in existing buildings, also. Come and hear 
1) What Kaiser Permanente learned from 3 years of deep research into the standards' origins and requirements. 
2) How you can stay on top of, and help advance proposed alternative standards that could improve air change rates, temperature, humidity, and natural ventilation. 
3) How you can prepare for the changes in ways that will deliver big savings in energy costs and greenhouse gases for years to come.

TravisEnglish
As Facilities Planning & Design Director of Engineering and 'chief design engineer' for Kaiser Permanente (KP), Travis English (PE, CEM, LEED-AP) oversees a national team providing design review and quality assurance for all of the company’s projects. Their reviews focus on established targets for energy use, water use, total cost of ownership, and sustainability.
Travis has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona and an MBA in management from Cal State Fullerton. He is a professional mechanical engineer with over 20 years of experience in design and construction of mechanical and energy system, with an emphasis on high performance design, indoor air quality, and building control systems. In 2009, he received the ASHRAE technical award for the Environmental Nature Center, a facility which used passive heating and cooling designs with100% natural ventilation. In 2014, he was named one of Consulting-Specifying Engineering Magazine’s “40 under 40”. Since 2012, he has actively advocated development and adoption of next-generation ventilation design principles and practices in the health care industry.
