IBPSA is proud to support the inaugural International Built Environment Week (IBEW), the first fully-integrated event in the Asia Pacific that covers the entire built environment life cycle and value chain.
Presented by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore, the IBEW will convene under the theme ‘Transforming the way we build’, and showcase today’s best practices and tomorrow’s innovations in four key areas: sustainability, construction productivity, digitalisation and smart facilities management.
As a member of IBPSA, you will enjoy more than 40% discount on your conference ticket at $680 (U.P $1,200). So grab this opportunity and register today. Seats are filling up fast! To register, click here: https://tinyurl.com/y67c854f
The NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN) in Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) announces its second international workshop on Putting Sustainability into Convergence: Connecting Data, People, and Systems with a special focus on social science, engineering and computer science integration. Long-term sustainability requires technology advancements, resilient infrastructure, adequate policy, and behavioral change. The main objective of a sustainable and resilient infrastructure is where a multitude of resources can be dynamically shared and individual behavior be incentivized to better meet community needs. While focusing on underserved groups, the intention is to improve overall quality of life and well-being by providing adequate access to infrastructure and services. Inspired by the NSF vision, this international workshop proposes convergence research that is built upon trans-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary concepts including two main characteristics: Challenges and opportunities from deep scientific questions and critical societal needs, and intensive integration across disciplines.
Case Study: Informing High Performance Design with Integrated Modelling Approaches – Thermal/Energy, CFD, and Daylight tools
Todd Taniguchi from WSP Ng will be presenting a case study for an innovative approach to an aircraft hangar retrofit in Pearl Harbor Hawaii. The key features of the building include a highly energy efficient 100% fresh air buoyancy driven fanless HVAC system and high levels of natural light. The presentation will focus on the tools used and the design changes that they enabled.
