ASCE AEI Conference 2015

The Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI), in partnership with the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), is pleased to announce the 6th Biennial Professional Conference for 2015. The theme of the conference is the “Birth and Life of the Integrated Building.”

The conference offers an opportunity for members of the building construction industry, including structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, construction management professional and architects, to learn about and discuss advanced strategies and state-of-the-art practices of building technology. The conference offers a balance between academics and practice and will offer presentations, panel discussions, workshops, technical paper sessions, keynote presentations, local tours of technical interest, a student competition and professional practice awards. In addition, MSOE will be hosting a career fair the night before the conference that is open to all Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management employers and students.

COMMERCIAL WEBINAR Free to attend, pay for credit.

Ventilation is an important part of making a building safe and comfortable, but it can require a significant amount of energy to properly condition that air. In this live webinar, we will discuss dynamic ventilation control strategies to vary the amount of outdoor air brought into the building as operating conditions change.

ECW Study Results

Commissioning can lead to energy savings—often 60% or more
Daylighting control—or daylight harvesting—has become a common energy-saving strategy in sustainable building design. A recent Energy Center project set out to determine existing levels of success with daylighting control, achieved savings and missed opportunities. Our findings demonstrate that successful implementation of automatic daylighting control requires a significant commissioning effort to reach full energy-savings potential.
