Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems

2.0 AIA LU-HSW / PDH / USGBC / LA CES

Zachary Fink,
Vice President, ZBF Geothermal, LLC

AIA Course ID 392GEO
USGBC ID 920012343

One of the most cost-effective energy use reduction strategies is ground source heat pumps for new construction and renovation projects. The basics of the different varieties of geothermal systems are elucidated and, then, the audience is shown recently completed projects that successfully incorporated geothermal systems into their design. Aspects of geothermal design that are highlighted include life-cycle cost analysis, energy savings analysis, available tax breaks, and integration into sustainably designed buildings.

Residential Design Using Modular/Prefab Construction

Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of both prefabricated (prefab) and modular construction for residential applications. Learn about the energy efficiencies available, as well as the wide variety of design outcomes possible. The greatest advantages of modular are that management and scheduling become simplified and the budget is reduced. There is a different basic process that is followed in modular construction, but – as witnessed in some relevant case studies – the results can be superlative.
