February Professional Education Seminar (PES) Webinar
When: Noon-2pm on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022
Topics: "Indoor Air Quality, Energy Conservation, Commissioning, Sustainability, Resilience and Other Good Stuff - How to Make Them Work for You and Your Clients"
Speaker: Jim Newman
This non-technical presentation will provide a helpful overview designed to help engineers - and others in the construction and design industry - better understand various tools and concepts that can be used to be both practical and profitable.
Experienced building owners, developers, architects, facility managers, building engineers, design-build and service contractors also will gain a better understanding of these concepts and how to get the most value from them.
This is the type of presentation you should consider having your existing customers or clients attend – as well as those you would like to have as customers or clients.
Jim Newman is an active member of many technical societies. Known as the “Dean of Green,” Jim regularly speaks across North America and internationally to professionals, student groups and the media about sustainability, resiliency and green technology. Today he uses his career expertise to help improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency in new and existing buildings – even more critical since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
Jim is Owner/Managing Partner of Newman Consulting Group, headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He is a CEM, a LEED AP BD+C, an OPMP & BEAP, and an ASHRAE DL since 2010. He is also a Fellow of the Engineering Society of Detroit, and of ASHRAE as of 2020.
He was co-chair of the IAQ committee for the new chapter on Climate Control published in the 2021 ASHRAE Fundamentals Handbook. He has been a trainer for ASHRAE Energy Standard 90.1, and has trained hundreds of architects, engineers, code officials and contractors on the use of the Standard. He is also a trainer for the BOMA High-Performing Building Certification, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Detroit BOMA Chapter in 2019.
Jim received a BSME from Tufts University in Boston, MA, and continued his education for an MBA degree at the University of Detroit and Wayne State University in Detroit, MI.
Newman Consulting Group (NCG) is an EPA Energy Star® and Rebuild Michigan® Partner. The Group works with architects, engineers, building owners and contractors throughout the world to design and construct more energy-efficient buildings to LEED® and other sustainable guidelines. NCG also helps commercial and industrial building owners retrofit existing buildings so they use less energy – and save money - while maintaining or improving the indoor air quality.
Jim said he’d much rather be here in person but he is still pleased to be able to meet us all virtually and hopes we get a lot out of the presentation.
