Fall Webinar Series

The Principles & Use of Infrared Thermography in Commissioning

Kevin Vander Klay, P.E., LEED AP, QCxP , – Grumman/Butkus Associates
September 12, 2018

This webinar demonstrates the exciting science and beneficial use of infrared (IR) thermography, and its potential and limitations in commissioning. We will look at examples of how the presenter has used IR thermography to identify leaking control valves, leaky building envelopes, improper blending in AHUs, poor wire connections, failed steam traps, poor window frame insulation, and other problem identification. The webinar covers important information to include in an IR thermography report as well as common features of IR cameras that aid in displaying the desired information. You’ll be able to understand the various cameras and devices available in the marketplace and find additional resources for training and certification. Ample time will be provided to answer questions.

Commissioning of Horizontal Structures

Nick Baker P.E., CCP, GPCP, LEED AP BD+C – Wood Harbinger
October 3, 2018

Commissioning isn’t just for buildings! Our entire infrastructure has evolved to a level of complexity that embraces an increasingly multi-phase and multi-disciplinary integrated commissioning process. Commissioning of horizontal structures (roadways, bridges, tunnels and rails) requires integration of quality management for successful design, construction and delivery. Nick Baker will discuss new and different systems that are included in the scope of commissioning horizontal structures, like fire/life safety, electrical distribution, traffic control, communications, and channelization, to name a few, plus how these systems integrate with energy consuming and occupant comfort systems, and with each other.

Commissioning, as related to Plumbing, Fire Protection, & Medical Gas Related Construction

Chris Sbarbaro, PE, CPD, GPD, LEED AP BD+C – Grumman/Butkus Associates
November 7, 2018

During design and construction, plumbing often is an overlooked part of the commissioning process. Mr. Sbarbaro will review plumbing systems and commissioning test requirements for domestic cold and hot water, waste and vent systems. He will present important design review steps for fire protection, laboratory/medical gas and sewage systems and provide suggestions for system testing during the construction phase, as well as common issues to watch out for throughout the building project.

A Daylighting Review for Commissioning Providers

Charles Knuffke, Systems VP & Evangelist – Wattstopper / Legrand
December 5, 2018

The purpose of daylighting controls is to create consistent lighting in a variety of zones and work areas of commercial buildings, which can also save electrical energy in the space. This webinar is a comprehensive approach to the purpose and use of daylighting and will present a discussion of product/system types, open-closed-dual loop design, operation, and commissioning. The speaker will touch on codes, standards and design preferences that drive daylighting for occupant comfort and safety. He will define and identify different daylighting controls systems, design principles and issues, and spatial configurations and installation considerations. He will describe how to prepare specifications for contractors and commission daylighting systems, as well as what, how, and when to calibrate systems.
