SPEAKER 1

Speaker  

Lincoln Lorscheider is the Vice President of Technology at BSUBAS, an automation consulting company, which specializes in BioTech and Data Center sectors. Lincoln’s recent work has been in the implementation and troubleshooting of control sequences, like GPC36, and work on other large scale utilities projects. He has been in the controls industry for nearly a decade, including as a Service technician for Siemens. His approach to controls is very hands-on, as early in his career, he served in the US Navy, as a nuclear-trained electronics technician. While in the Navy, he operated the S9G nuclear reactor on a submarine. He recently joined ASHRAE and is already involved in contributing to the community with his involvement in GPC36 committee meetings.   

Presentation
Summary
  How great is BacNET?

This presentation will cover the limitation of certain protocols like ModBus and some of the challenges with integration into BacNET. Lincoln will cover over all infrastructure layout, the pros/cons of the protocols, security of building automation systems, and some lessons learned to improve your future designs. He will also touch upon the use of BacNet in validated systems, used in the biotech industry.

 

Speaker  

Paul Raftery has been a key contributor to CBE’s research since joining us in 2013. His overarching purpose is to improve building energy efficiency by investigating advanced integrated HVAC systems. He is currently a Co-Principal Investigator on two California Energy Commission research projects: one focused on radiant hydronic systems (approx. $3M in funding) and one focused on integrated smart ceiling fans and thermostats (approx. $2M). He is an active member of IBPSA and ASHRAE, including as a voting member of ASHRAE TC 6.5 (radiant heating and cooling) and ASHRAE GPC 36 (high performance control sequences).

Presentation
Summary
  Getting out of hot water: Electrification of VAV reheat

Paul Raftery, PhD will share a case study, which showed that energy losses can be very high for hot water reheat systems (83% in a studied large office building in San Mateo County) and that an electric reheat system with photovoltaic panels may be both cheaper to install and to operate.

SPEAKER 2

 

Speaker  

Brandon Gill is a Principal at Taylor Engineering responsible for HVAC and controls system design and specification, sequence of operation development, design review, and commissioning. Mr. Gill has expertise in specifying DDC systems; writing sequences of operation for central plants, data centers, and large commercial facilities; and commissioning. His design experiences include plan and spec high rises, speculative office and lab buildings, data centers, and acoustically sensitive recording and performance venues. Mr. Gill strongly believes that smartly designed and executed controls systems are central to maximizing building energy efficiency and operability.

Presentation
Summary
  ASHRAE Guideline 36 Research: past, present and future

Mr. Gill will present on the current state of ASHRAE research related to ASHRAE Guideline 36: High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems. He will review past research projects, including RP-1455, RP-1515, RP-1353, RP-1587, and RP-1547/1747, and discuss how they informed the sequences included in Guideline 36; provide an overview of the ongoing Guideline 36 related research projects, RP-1711 and RP-1661, and explore how they will impact future updates to the Guideline; and highlight future Guideline 36 related research in the ASHRAE pipeline, including RP-1819 and Work Statement-1865.

 

Speaker  

Tyler Jones is a Senior Commissioning Engineer at Sindoni Consulting & Management Services who has recently led the LEED Enhanced Commissioning design and field activities for the 520,000 square-foot Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Expansion Project on the Stanford campus, and the 1 million square-foot California Pacific Medical Center Van Ness Campus Project in downtown San Francisco.  His primary roles on these projects consisted of leading Sequence of Operations meetings with the design and construction teams, the development and execution of functional test procedures, and final turnover for each of these projects. Mr. Tyler Jones is a registered Mechanical Engineer in the state of California who holds a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California Berkeley, and is a proud member of the ASHRAE San Jose Chapter. His objective with every project is to ensure these moving parts continuously work together to achieve these three goals, while minimizing our impact on the environment.

Presentation
Summary
  The Growing Challenges and Benefits of Commissioning: Trends & An Industry Tune-Up

As trends continue to change rapidly in the construction industry, there is an increasing need for the commissioning process to evolve with today’s dynamic industry environment. Modifying our commissioning process to suit current conditions and new project delivery structures is critical to ensuring that buildings operate reliably and efficiently.  The presentation will review how trends in construction have affected the commissioning process and how the overall and long-term benefits of commissioning continue to grow with these changes.  Tyler will review how current best practices in commissioning can provide the highest value to the end user based on the current state of the industry.

 

SPEAKER 3

Speaker  

Reece Kiriu is a Registered Mechanical Engineer at Taylor Engineering.  Mr. Kiriu previously worked as the Building Automation Systems Department Quality Assurance/Quality Control Manager for a Building Automation Systems Contractor.  He was involved in all aspects of Building Automation Systems projects including project management, control system design, programming, installation and commissioning.

At Taylor Engineering, Mr. Kiriu has developed expertise in specifying building automation systems, developing sequences of operations, and commissioning.  His experience in building automation system design and commissioning span mission critical facilities, central plants, museums, and large office buildings.  Mr. Kiriu has been a member and key author of ASHRAE Guideline 36.

Presentation
Summary
  Transforming Market Delivery for Building Automation Systems: ASHRAE Guideline 36 and EPIC Best in Class

Mr. Kiriu will present on market transformation of the Building Automation Systems Industry by way of ASHRAE Guideline 36 and the CEC EPIC Best in Class Project.  He will review the project tasks, results from demonstration sites, discuss implementation barriers and future work for Guideline 36 enhancement.

 

Speaker  

Adam Nakagoshi is the Regional Design Technology Director for Gensler’s Northwest Region, and is based in the San Francisco office. With a background in architecture, building information modeling (BIM), and data-driven 3D modeling, Adam leads the integration of digital technologies as a way to bridge the gap between the visualization of unbuilt environments with virtual and augmented reality technology (VR and AR). He guides the research and development, application for project use, and the implementation of the technology into the design process for teams throughout the region. His clients include NVIDIA, San Francisco International Airport, and the City of San Jose. Adam holds a Masters in Architecture from the University of South Florida.

Presentation
