ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer Series Technical Seminar on Fundamentals of Building Envelopes and Humidity Control in Hot & Humid Climates

Hong Kong has a humid subtropical climate characteristic of Southern China. Summer is hot and humid, with occasional showers and thunderstorms and warm air from the southwest. With this climate characteristic, building envelopes and humidity control are important issues for many buildings in Hong Kong. It will affect building materials, air quality, comfort, corrosion, hygiene and even virus/bacteria inflections. This technical seminar explains the concepts of humidity control and its relationship with building envelopes. In addition, the speaker will also focus on the sharing of humidity control techniques in buildings and analysis of critical causes to comprise most building failures in hot and humid areas. It will further introduce different ASHRAE standards and publications related to humidity control in buildings in hot and humid climates.

Application of ASHRAE Standards in LEED v4: Comprehensive Certificate Course (Upcoming)

Application of ASHRAE Standards in LEED v4: Comprehensive Certificate Course (Upcoming)

ASHRAE develops standards for refrigeration processes and indoor environment’s design and maintenance, including but not limited to commissioning, energy performance and audit, thermal comfort and ventilation. Some ASHRAE Standards are referenced in the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy Design (LEED) green building rating system such as ASHRAE Standard 34, 55, 62.1 and 90.1. This course will discuss the detailed application of each of the related ASRHAE standards in LEED v4. It is designed for building and facility management professionals, project managers, engineers, the other professionals and practitioners who are interested in green building projects. All speakers are experienced and professional, the participants will acquire essential knowledge on requirements of ASHRAE and LEED.
