Syska Hennessy Group, Inc.

Presentation Abstract:
Thermally active structure is an evolving strategy that has become a popular system in green buildings.  Originally implemented for heating only, as radiant heating floors, this strategy has, over the past 20 years been implemented also as a cooling strategy.  The addition of cooling capability adds a number of design constraints and potential operational problems to the successful implementation of the system.  This presentation explores the many design, construction and operational issues of thermally active heating and cooling structures.  Issues addressed include
•    Most effective applications of the technology
•    Design issues
•    Design tools
•    Construction issues
•    Constraints and limitations
•    How-to tips
Case studies of successful implementations

We hope you will join us.  Please RSVP by Friday, March 29th.  An accurate attendee list helps us keep the chapter dues and meeting costs as low as possible.  Thank you!
