Last month, ASHRAE President Chuck Gulledge made a number of very excellent points on the need to integrate designs, and he's shown us many great examples of successfully well integrated building projects... This presentation aims to continue the conversation about integrated design by proposing practical and pragmatic solutions to achieve well integrated HVAC designs. The market will continue to demand ever more efficient buildings, towards net zero and zero carbon designs. The HVAC equipment we manufacture are efficient but the rate of the energy efficiency improvement is decreasing. In other word, if buildings are to continue to be more efficient, then we need to do more with the building itself and not rely solely on the HVAC equipment.
