Hi everyone,

Please join us February 10, 2015 at the Parktown Hotel for our monthly general meeting.  This months speaker is distinguished lecturer Tim McGinn, P.Eng from the Calgary office of the multidisciplinary firm, Dialog.  

Tim's recently updated lecture topic will be, "Low Impact Mechanical Systems":
Once the building mass, orientation and envelope is optimized and the building loads have been reduced to significantly below conventional values, mechanical system selection choices can include both downsized conventional systems and a number of low energy mechanical systems, many of which have been used in Europe for years. Mr McGinn will show the design basis of North American examples of buildings conditioned with radiant chilled slabs, displacement ventilation, underflow air and multi-stage evaporative cooling integrated with hybrid natural ventilation. Advantages in comfort, ventilation effectiveness and energy effectiveness will also be highlighted.

If you'd like more information on Mr McGinn, please see the following link:

See you there!
