Industry professionals converge for three-day conference at Chicago’s McCormick Place to discuss sustainable, safe, and reliable on-site utilities powering automation. The Best Practices Expo & Conference will feature a variety of sessions focused on complex systems including compressed air, blower, vacuum, pneumatics, and cooling water.
ESD, now Stantec Mechanical Technical Authority Suzan Sun-Yuan will be leading a session, “Central Utility Plant (CUP) Promises Reliability, Reduced Capital Cost, and Energy Savings.” According to Sun-Yuan, a CUP can present a complicated set of variables at any stage for any complex facility. She says, “Understanding these systems and strategies is key to applying standardized design and engineering practices to develop reliable chilled water systems and better facilities.”
The October 23 – 25 event also offers continuing education (CE) credits, certification exams, and networking opportunities.
Suzan Sun-Yuan brings her extensive experience in the design of commercial, institutional, and educational facilities to ESD, now Stantec’s mission to support communities and improve society through the built environment.
