ASHRAE Winter Conference Seminar Announcement: Seminar 69 - Climate Change Liability for Owners, Designers and Manufacturers
January 16, 2019
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
ASHRAE Winter Conference

Seminar 69 - Climate Change Liability for Owners, Designers and Manufacturers

The Minnesota ASHRAE Sustainable Building Committee would like to invite you to attend the Climate Change Liability for Owners, Designers, and Maufacturers Seminar at the Winter Meeting in Atlanta.

ASHRAE provides guidance on use of climatic data in designs and facility assessments. The vast majority of design firms use historic climate files, which aligns with current professional standard of care. Given the international consensus that climate is changing, use of historic weather data in designs could lead to underperforming systems or building failures. Projected weather files from regional climate models include their own uncertainty and risk. This puts architects, engineers, owners and manufacturers in a difficult situation. This session covers basic climate change science, risks associated with various weather file use and changing standards of care.

Session Title:     Seminar 69 - Climate Change Liability for Owners, Designers and Manufacturers

Date and Time:  Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Speakers:           Dru Crawley, PhD, FASHRAE - Chair of ASHRAE Climatic Information

                          Kenneth Kunkel, PhD - NOAA, Fourth National Climate Assessment Author

                          Ann Kosmal, FAIA - GSA, Fourth National Climate Assessment Author
