ASHRAE's Headquarter Renovation - What Happens When the Leaders Try To Do It Right by Ronal Jarnagain, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer

We are honored this month to host the ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, Ron Jarnagin. Mr. Jarnagin has been involved in energy-related research and development activities for over 35 years. His background is diverse, including work in the areas of power plants, automotive and transportation systems, HVAC systems, energy use in buildings, smart grid activities and energy standards development. Mr. Jarnagin has served on numerous utility, government and business advisory boards, lending his expertise to solving their respective energy problems.

ASHRAE recently dedicated a complete renovation of its headquarters building in Atlanta. The renovation targeted achieving LEEDTM NC Gold as well as LEEDTM EB Gold levels of performance. The renovation project also sought to create a sustainable building that demonstrated various HVAC technologies and also served as a Living Laboratory for the use of its members. The presentation will focus on the design and construction process, the systems installed in the building and preliminary building performance results. We will also take a look at what worked as well as looking at where some of the major surprises occurred.
