Credits: BOMI: 1 Cost: FREE


Current trends in HVAC design and operations are focusing on reducing ventilation related energy inefficiencies through sophisticated building automation systems. Air quality practitioners are becoming concerned the trade-off costs to human health and productivity for these energy savings are not being properly taken into account. This seminar will explore these trends, examine the possible trade-offs and consequences, and try to clarify what alternatives are available.

In 1988, Curt started his environmental career as one of the first US EPA accredited asbestos management planners. As such he was responsible for conducting asbestos assessments for millions of square feet across multiple school districts throughout southern California. He’s since managed indoor environmental consulting projects for all levels of business and government in both Canada and the US, shifting more in recent years to a focus on quantitative IAQ and indoor environmental quality for high prestige office towers. An enthusiastic educator, Curt is also a published writer and an experienced public speaker on indoor environmental issues. Additionally, he’s an accomplished software developer, having written several commercial environmental software packages. Currently dividing his time between Calgary and Toronto, Curt holds a First Class Honours degree in Philosophy from the University of Calgary, and has successfully completed the Graduate Program in Strategic Management offered by the University of California, San Diego.
