YEA Hosts Oktoberfest Happy Hour

The Young Engineers in ASHRAE group continued their stellar lineup of events with an Oktoberfest happy hour!

Held at Urban Chestnut in the Grove, the 70,000 square foot, LEED Silver Brewery & Bierhall served as the perfect location to catch up with old friends and make new connections, all while paying homage to the festival of Oktoberfest. The October Happy hour was the first YEA event to be officially open to the entire chapter. There was a strong turnout of around 35 attendees, with over 10 of the attendees being non-YEA chapter members or potential new members. Mike Kearney, past Chapter Historian and frequent ASHRAE attendee, commented, “ASHRAE Happy Hours at craft breweries are the kind of civic involvement that I like to support… the beer, food, and company were all outstanding.”

August Meeting: Effects of LEEDv4 and New Energy Code on Certification

The Chapter’s traditional joint meeting with USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter was held this past August to kick of the new ASHRAE year. The topic was suitably chosen to appeal to both ASHRAE and USGBC audiences.

Scott Bowman joined us to present on “Code Dread: Keeping Up with ASHRAE and LEED.” The presentation looked at the major changes to ASHRAE 90.1-2010 through the lens of a case study project where energy modeling was used to determine the new standards’ effects on energy savings and LEED certification.

Scott Bowman, speaker at August 2015 Meeting

Scott used the analogy of legos. We were given the same number and shapes of legos to build a building with, and all the different creations were displayed on the stage. This was to illustrate that, given the same tools (the same quantities of the same shapes of legos), we all created different things.

Scott is a licensed professional engineer and LEED Fellow, and has retired from his position as Principal and Corporate Sustainability Leader with KJWW, a multi-discipline engineering consulting firm of over 500 people, as of June 2014. He speaks regularly on sustainability at regional and national conferences and provides regular training on multiple subjects. He is also president of the Iowa USGBC chapter and dual member of the Idaho chapter. Scott is an avid Lego-lover and Twitter user (follow him @ScottBLEGO).

September Grill Masters Recap
