ESD Senior Managing Director Mehdi Jalayerian will be the featured presenter at an upcoming Professional Development/Architectural and Engineering Design (PD/AED) Seminar Series at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering.

Various building energy trends and design strategies for a wide range of building types will be showcased when Jalayerian meets with students and professionals at the April 10 event.

Jalayerian is expected to highlight collaboration as a key factor to optimizing the energy and operational performance of buildings. That is because many factors, including building configuration/massing and envelope play an important role in successfully meeting energy codes and sustainability goals. He believes the art of designing a beautiful façade that balances elements of loss/gain, daylight, and solar radiation requires an optimized integrated solution.

Jalayerian will be sharing his 35+ years of experience integrating building systems design into some of the world’s most iconic structures.

Mehdi Jalayerian freely shares his expert knowledge of high-rise and supertall buildings with students and industry professionals alike to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.

Contact ESD’s experts for more information on how ESD can help with building automation, technology, cybersecurity, or other engineering design requirements.
