About this Event

Incorporating an integrative approach into the design process is one of the best ways to optimize the energy performance of a building project.  This presentation will introduce the audience to the new ASHRAE Standard 209 and discuss how the new framework facilitates an integrative design process and can improve the energy performance of building design projects.  While building energy models have traditionally been used to demonstrate code compliance or show beyond-code performance, they don’t have to be used solely at the end of a project’s design.  Project teams can unlock additional stakeholder value by using energy models to improve decision making during design which will maximize the impact of energy improvement measures.  Standard 209 modeling cycles also include provisions to help ensure energy performance goals remain intact through design, construction and operations.

The two presenters will switch off more than once during the course of the presentation.  Each will focus on a different type of energy modeling used to inform design which are organized into “modeling cycles” in ASHRAE Standard 209.  Each modeling cycle has a different primary objective in order to minimize energy consumption and inform decision making during the design process.  Both Kim and Scott are voting members of the ASHRAE Standard Project Committee that developed 209 since its inception.  Kim and Scott each have worked on dozens of LEED projects in their professional practice and are prominent advocates for including energy modeling in the building design process. 

ASHRAE Standard 209, "Energy Simulation Aided Design for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings", will soon be published. Come to sneak peak and an engaging presentation by:

SCOTT WEST, PE, LEED AP BD+C, ASHRAE BEAP & BEMP, Mechanical Engineer, Harrison French & Associates
Scott West is a senior mechanical engineer with the HFA in Fort Worth, TX. Scott is an energy efficiency specialist, design lead and project manager. Scott holds a Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arkansas.  Scott has over 12 years of experience in the consulting engineering industry and he spent two of those years working abroad in the UK.  Scott has experience with a wide variety of building types, HVAC and renewable energy systems with an emphasis on high performance design.  Scott is a leading energy modeling specialist and has completed dozens of energy models to support design decisions, code compliance and LEED certification.  Scott is active in ASHRAE at the local and society level and sits on standards development committees for 189.1, 205 and 209.

KIM SHINN, PE, LEED Fellow, Engineer and Principal, TLC Engineering for Architecture
Kim Shinn is a principal and senior sustainability wizard with TLC Engineering for Architecture. Kim’s wizarding duties include coaching project teams and clients to get out of their boxes. Kim has Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics and Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degrees from Texas Tech.  Kim’s career in energy efficiency and renewable energy stretches back to the first Arab Oil Embargo in the 1970’s – his master’s thesis is an investigation on the asymmetric radiant flux on the solar collector for a thermal solar power station.  Kim was elevated to LEED Fellow in 2010, the first year of the program.  Kim has been active in ASHRAE standard and guide development, having served as a voting member and author on the core committees that created Standard 135 – BACnet, Guideline 13 – DDC Controls, and the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Large Hospitals – 50% Energy Reduction.
