AIRAH and the Innovation Hub for Affordable Heating and Cooling (i-Hub) are hosting a free Symposium about the Integrated Design Studios (IDS) initiative. The online event will feature three two-hour sessions from October 25–27.
The Integrated Design Studios concept is about involving HVAC&R engineers at the early stages of the building design process. The conceptual design stage of a project is the point where decisions can make the most impact and changes can be made at least cost.
Early collaboration between architects, HVAC&R engineers and other stakeholders creates opportunities to deliver major cost and energy savings.
The Symposium sessions will offer updates and insights into the i-Hub IDS technologies and research, and will include live panels with key industry leaders.
