Topic: European Technologies and their Application in North America
By way of select case study of Low Carbon/Low Energy from Europe, technologies, approaches and mechanical systems are reviewed and discussed and related to the North American context. The talk uses a Frankfurt commercial speculative office building to highlight an integrated building services strategy that uses simple, cost effective low energy strategies to deliver excellent indoor environmental quality with low operating costs.
Speaker: Tim J. McGinn, P.E.
Mr. McGinn’s combined mechanical and electrical degrees, and his LEED® accreditation, put him in a unique position. He has extensive experience in designing mechanical and electrical systems for complex projects but his real passion is a specialization in designing low impact/low energy mechanical and electrical systems for green buildings. As a result, Tim is a frequent lecturer on Green Buildings throughout North America. He is also an outspoken proponent of the Integrated Design approach and often leads project teams through the integrated design and LEED Certification processes. Tim is based in Calgary and is a partner in a 300 person AE firm with offices in Calgary and Edmonton, AB and Toronto ON. Mr. McGinn is an experienced project manager and mechanical designer having been involved in major new building projects and significant renovations and planning projects for over twenty-five years. He is also experienced in the analysis and design of central heating and cooling plants, industrial refrigeration, process utilities and large piped distribution systems. His green building design expertise includes passive evaporative cooling, indirect evaporative cooling, displacement and underfloor air system, natural and mixed mode ventilation, solar chimneys, solar air preheating, grey water reuse and passive solar heating. Mr. McGinn is a LEED Accredited Professional and graduated with Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Degrees from University of Saskatchewan with twenty five years experience as a consulting engineer.
