Improved building system technology is making today’s smart buildings safer, more energy efficient, and more attractive to tenants. But ESD, now Stantec Studio Leader and Senior Security Consultant Coleman Wolf says building automated system (BAS) improvements could come with new vulnerabilities.

ASHRAE Illinois Chapter’s Spring Conference will once again gather professionals in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) engineering industry for a full day of learning and networking.
ESD will be well represented with three teams of experts presenting sessions in the Building Automation Systems (BAS) track of three concurrently running program paths. (Other tracks include Sustainability/Decarbonization and a Miscellaneous category of wide-ranging topics.)
ESD Senior Project Automation Engineer David Wylen and ESD Technical Authority Maria Campos will be leading a session on “Modular Controls Strategy,” while ESD Project Engineers Colin Clark and Alec Lohmann will be exploring “Kitchen System Controls and Integration into BAS.” Rounding out the three teams are ESD Automation Studio Leader Erin DeFrieze and ESD Automation Designer Tom McDonagh presenting “BAS at the Edge.”
Registration for the May 11 event is open to ASHRAE members, non-members, and students. In addition to adding to their industry knowledge, participants are also eligible to earn five professional development hours (PDHs) toward the required training needed for professional engineering state license renewal.
At ESD, our professionals participate in an active culture of community and professional support as part of the company’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
