Technical Workshop Series: Ice Rink Design – Advanced Level

The technical workshop of “Ice Rink Design” on 24 January 2019 gave a quick introduction to Chapter 44 of the ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook, i.e. ice rinks. This workshop is an advanced level to take a deeper look into design of ice rinks. The following areas will, in particular, be covered in greater details:

  • Radiation heat transfer

  • Condensation problem on surrounding building fabric

  • Secondary coolant system vs liquid overfeed system

An introduction to Chapter 4 of the ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook on liquid overfeed system will also be given.

Technical Seminar on Achieving High Performance Building – from Life Cycle Assessment to Enhanced Operation & Maintenance Best Practices to Retro-Commissioning

In Hong Kong, Heating, Ventilating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) systems constitute the major energy consumption in commercial buildings. In order to support the local building industry to deliver the genuine energy building performance, ASHRAE HK Chapter has invited one of our ASHRAE Distinguish Lecturers, Mr. OM Taneja, Ph.D., P.E., Fellow ASHRAE and Dr. Paul Sat, Head of Research and Public Education of Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) to deliver three technical talks. The technical topics cover Life Cycle Assessment (LCC) of energy efficiency projects and how the LCC and other assessments to facilitate decision making on adaptive changes to building systems, enhanced operation and maintenance best practices for high performance buildings and professional knowledge required by the building practitioners, attitude and needs for carrying out retro- commissioning works and how to overcome the barriers when applying retro-commissioning to existing buildings.

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.

2018 ASHRAE Handbook - Refrigeration Technical Workshop Series: Ice Rink Design

Based on ASHRAE Handbook 2018 – Refrigeration, you will develop an understanding of the field of refrigeration, including but not limited to: comfort cooling or air conditioning, commercial refrigeration and industrial refrigeration. The technical workshop series will refresh your knowledge from an understanding of basic principles to their application in real-world situations.

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.
