Griffin to Give Students Guidance on Building Design Field

Advanced building design is a rapidly growing field that always is in search of recent college graduates who are hard workers and fresh thinkers.

Ken Griffin will highlight the excitement involved with this field during his talk “Building Analytics Through Integrated Design” to University of Illinois at Chicago students on Thursday, March 12 at 4 p.m. during an ASHRAE-UIC meeting. He will describe analytical and holistic design approaches that demonstrate a collaborative effort from conceptual design through building occupation with the purpose of improving the built environment. The focus will be on optimizing building components so clients can make informed decisions to achieve their project’s performance goals.

Griffin has worked on diverse analysis projects including envelope optimization, daylighting analysis, parametric analysis, HVAC optimization and thermal comfort analysis.
