2019 ASHRAE BPAC - Preconference workshops

2019 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference - Preconference Workshops

Effective simulation throughout the building life cycle with Tas (presented by EDSL)

On Tuesday morning, we held a pre-conference workshop with attendees from high performance building design teams, firm leaders, energy analysts, and other related backgrounds.  Michael Sawford and Robert Yori reviewed how Tas can be used throughout the ASHRAE 209 cycles.  This included a general introduction to Tas, BIM and BEM interoperability workflows, and whole building simulation using Tas Systems – our component based tool for simulating innovative and advanced plant room and air-side systems. 
The workshop included live simulations of projects, systems inspection using Tas Systems, and a case study of a post occupancy performance analysis. To wrap up, attendees stayed for lunch and were joined by our afternoon workshop participants for some networking and knowledge sharing.

The afternoon workshop was well attended with some last minute sign-ups taking the total to 23. 4 attendees from our morning workshop also joined us for the afternoon which turned out to be a great workshop led by Alejandra Menchaca (Thornton Tomasetti), Kjell Anderson (LMN Architects) and Aman Singhvi (AECOM).
