ATLANTA – To meet the increased expectations of building occupants, designers must be aware of conflicts between first cost economics, productivity and life cycle costs, according to a speaker at ASHRAE’s upcoming satellite broadcast.

Buildings that do not meet the needs of the occupants often result in expensive redesign,” Dan Int-Hout, a panelist, said. “I will share common sense ideas to help engineers meet these conflicting needs.”

Registration is now open at for the free April 18, satellite broadcast and Webcast, Indoor Environmental Design: Practical Solutions to Everyday Problems. The program, which takes place from 1-4 p.m. EDT., will provide specific solutions to the everyday challenges of achieving indoor environmental quality within real-world budget constraints.”

Presenter Hoy Bohanon notes that, “Recent changes in ventilation standards may be perceived as making the design more complex. The standards now contain important tools that can be used to guide engineers in making their designs more sustainable. My presentation offers three keys to sustainable ventilation system design that will improve your systems and help you avoid common mistakes.”

Reliable Controls Bill Coad, president of Coad Engineering Enterprises, St. Louis, Missouri, and past ASHRAE president, will present the program’s purpose and scope and introduce the following panel of experts:

• Bohanon, owner and consultant, Bohanon Engineering, PLLC, Winston-Salem, N.C. – “Ventilation Systems: Avoiding Common Mistakes by Using Three Keys for Sustainable Design”
• Lew Harriman, director of research, Mason-Grant, Portsmouth, N.H. – “Ventilation Air: First, Do No Harm”
• Int-Hout, chief engineer, Krueger-HVAC, Richardson, Texas – “Noise, IAQ and Thermal Comfort – Can You Have It All?”
