      USGBC Virginia Lessons Learned in 10 Years of Zero Energy Design

      Lessons Learned in 10 Years of Zero Energy Design This course is approved for 1 GBCI CE 1 AIA CE This course focuses on the lessons learned in ten years of zero energy design illustrated through case studies from various projects. The evolution of building systems and their effect on the path to zero energy reveal best practices for Zero Energy building design and operations, valuable information the attendees can apply to their future projects. Presenters:   Lee Harrelson, PE, LEED AP Mr. Harrelson is a Principal and Sr. Mechanical Engineer at CMTA. He is responsible for managing, supervising and performing design of the engineering components of major architectural and engineering projects. His exceptional dedication to client service and quality control, coupled with his sustainable design expertise have helped him to lead major government and private sector modernization projects. Mr. Harrelson was recognized by Consulting Specifying Engineer Magazine as a “40 Under 40” award winner, recognizing the nation’s top 40 engineers in the A/E/C business, under the age of 40. Mr. Harrelson has been a lecturer and critic at the Catholic University of America where he taught MEP systems integration to aspiring architects. He is also active in the local engineering community, most recently participating in the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon and ASHRAE. Drew Roberts, PE Mr. Roberts joined CMTA in 2015 bringing several years of experience designing energy efficient mechanical and plumbing systems. His experience encompasses a wide range of facilities including K-12 and higher education, health care, state and local government facilities, laboratories, commercial, institutional and retail. During his career, he has designed various HVAC, hydronic, fire suppression, plumbing, refrigeration and renewable energy systems. His responsibilities include project management, design, specification, and contract administration. He has extensive knowledge about building loads and energy models and the effect of mechanical systems on the building’s overall performance. Mr. Roberts has completed numerous K-12 education projects. He has experience with both new construction as well as phased renovations which were served by several different system types including, but not limited to, geothermal water-source heat pump systems and variable refrigerant flow systems. His responsibilities include managing the MEP project team, designing mechanical and plumbing systems, and coordinating requirements with both the owner and local authorities. He has a thorough understanding of educational facilities and their unique requirements. Many projects have included sustainable design features such as geothermal water source systems, high efficiency pumping systems, energy recovery systems, carbon dioxide monitoring systems and renewable energy systems such as photovoltaics and solar thermal. As the lead mechanical engineer Mr. Roberts will be responsible for the design and specification of mechanical systems for this project. He will coordinate with the Design Team and Owner to meet the expectations of this project. He will be responsible for the production of plans and specifications for the mechanical systems to ensure the design developed by the team will be executed properly. Lunch will be served Parking: Visitors to CBF’s Brock Environmental Center should park along Marlin Bay Drive and should not park on the pavers by the pump house. Please allow at least 5 minutes to walk the nature path from the end of Marlin Bay Drive to the center. Flat-soled shoes recommended. There are a limited number of designated ADA parking spaces closer to the center. Guests may also be dropped off in front of the center, via the paver and gravel entrance at the intersection of Chesterfield Ave. and E. Stratford Rd.
