CAP Collaboration Series: Mechanical Systems 101: What architects need to know with FSi Consulting Engineers
Join our Corporate Allied Partner FSi Consulting Engineers for an hour long Continuing Education class on Mechanical Systems
Does it need to be so noisy? And do I really have to give up that much space? We’ll explore the mysteries of mechanical systems from an architect’s perspective. Mechanical systems are central to both energy savings (or consumption) and occupant comfort. Understanding how these systems work can help you speak knowledgeably to contractors and engineers, design for optimal building performance, meet construction and operating budgets, and avoid post-construction occupant complaints. We’ll look at common mechanical system types, the
equipment used, the basics of how they work, and the types of buildings and projects where each system makes the most sense. Bring an appetite (we’ll provide lunch) and your questions about mechanical systems. We hope you can join us!
- Summarize heating and cooling, thermal comfort, and energy performance as it relates to mechanical systems
- Identify common mechanical systems and equipment
- Explain how mechanical systems affect building energy use
- Explain commonly-used terms relating to mechanical systems
