BESA to host international IAQ webinar
UK: The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) is to host an international webinar featuring global IAQ authority Max Sherman.
The webinar organised by the CIBSE ASHRAE Group will take place on Wednesday, 9 November 2016 at 18.00 (UK time).
Max Sherman, senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, has authored over 170 technical papers in his 36 years at this prestigious institution. An ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer and former board member, he is also principal of EPB Consulting Group, which carries out forensic, engineering and expert services relating to building science including energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
Max is also a board member of the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre, which is an annex of the International Energy Agency based in Brussels.
Speaking via web link live from California, Max will review the how and why of ventilation; outline the requirements of a smart control ventilation strategy; provide some actual examples of smart ventilation strategies; and look further into the future of IAQ.
The session will be chaired by BESA technical director Tim Rook and there will be a discussion led by the Association’s technical committee following the presentation. There are a small number of ‘physical’ places for those wanting to join the discussion in person, but many more will be able to join in online via the webinar link.
