Standard 189.1 Overview with HVAC Designers Focus (Dennis Stanke presenting)

ASHRAE Standard 189.1 “Design of High Performance Green Buildings” provides requirements for better-than-minimum building designs for commercial, institutional and hi-rise residential buildings. An alternative project compliance path for the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), this standard provides design teams with valuable requirements related to site, water use, energy use, indoor environmental quality, materials use, and construction and plans for operation. While all of these requirements are important to the building project team, only some of them impact mechanical system designers directly. This presentation focuses on HVAC system-design requirements.

Lunch – Price: $15 for WV ASHRAE Gold Members, $20 for others.  Marshall Engineering and Energy Mgmt students are free but must register. Thanks to our sponsors for covering the student lunches - Trane, Johnson Controls and MSES.  There is limited seating so sign up early. Everyone needs to register.  

Dennis Stanke, ASHRAE Fellow, ASHRAE
Mr. Stanke
graduated from the University of Wisconsin and  began his career with Trane in 1973. For nearly thirty years, he was an applications engineer specializing in airside systems and control, ventilation and indoor air quality. He has authored many Trane Applications Engineering Manuals and Engineers Newsletters as well as many articles for the ASHRAE Journal.

State Energy Codes

This map shows State Energy Codes as of July 1. WV, Ohio and Penn use the same version. Ky and Va are 1 cycle newer (90.1-2010 code). Maryland, on our eastern side of the state, is two cycles ahead (90.1-2013). ASHRAE should approve the 90.1-2016 code end of 2015. A building built to the 2016 code will use 40% less energy than a building built to the 2007 code.

A huge thanks to our Chapter Donors from Research and Promotion.
As RP Chair, I am honored to announce that we not only met our fundraising goal last year but we exceeded it by 5%. In addition, we have met the roundtable goal since each member of the board of directors donated at least $100.00. Thank you all for your contribution.
This year should be interesting and fun as we are planning a trade show and half day of training for our members, tentatively scheduled for April 2016. It will be a back to basics series of training seminars taught by some of the industry’s best and brightest. The following is a list of potential subjects that will be covered.

  • Boilers, Steam and Hydronic including sizing a pump, Legionella concerns, and boiler water treatment.
  • Airside including duct sizing, Understanding a psychometric chart, Duct sizing, Retro commissioning an air side system, and Zoning a ducted system
  • Understanding VRF systems
