Join us for the DMC Sustainability Speaker Series on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from noon-1 p.m. at the Rochester Public Library (Meeting Room B, 2nd floor). This month’s topic will be Low-Temperature Heating Hot Water Building Conversions.

The engineering community is entering an exciting time of rethinking how buildings are heated and cooled.  Design approaches incorporating low-temperature heating hot water and flexible infrastructure provide opportunities to deploy new technologies that allow connectivity to district heating and cooling systems and reduce energy footprints, annual utility costs, and carbon footprints.  A presentation by Michael Luster, senior mechanical engineer at MEP Associates, LLC, will discuss the benefits of converting existing buildings and how existing buildings may be evaluated and converted to a low-temperature hot water infrastructure while reusing as many of the existing assets as possible.
