Transforming a building lobby to be more appealing to tenants and visitors could change the space’s environment in unexpected ways. Window condensation could become a problem if proper planning is ignored. (Learn more about the condensation issues.)
The 2021 ASHRAE Virtual Annual Conference is slated to be a global event with live sessions from experts around the world.
As a featured presenting author, Mehdi Jalayerian will be discussing “The Impact of Uncontrolled Building Pressure on HVAC Systems Design and Performance of Tall Buildings.” The presentation will discuss how uncontrolled air movement into and out of a tall building due to wind pressures, air buoyancy, or stack effect can cause building pressure imbalance that can significantly impact heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system design and performance. Jalayerian will also examine the stack effect impact on building HVAC system design, operation, and energy performance while suggesting methods to mitigate and manage these impacts
Jalayerian’s presentation is part of Seminar 66: Stack Effect and Wind Induces Building Pressure Mitigation Strategies in Tall Buildings. The virtual conference runs from June 28-30. It will feature over 50 live sessions on topics ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to building decarbonization, the fundamentals of climate change, and more.
As Senior Managing Director, Mehdi Jalayerian regularly shares his knowledge about major high-rise and supertall buildings, convention and hotel facilities, and educational/government projects to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
