Jeff Yirak to Present at I2SL Emerald City Chapter Event

The I2SL Emerald City Chapter will be hosting its first AIA Credit Lecture Series event on December 9th, 2015, featuring  our own Jeff Yirak, P.E., CPMP, LEED AP BD+C, O+M,  Associate Principal of Commissioning! Learn more about this event and register here.

Jeff’s presentation, “Smooth and Efficient Commissioning Makes Projects Add Up to More Than the Sum of Their Parts,” will answer some ongoing questions in the AEC industry: Why can’t every project be delivered as smoothly as we would like?  Are there things a project delivery team can do to help ensure a smooth and efficient turnover of today’s complex, critical environments?

Jeff will walk the audience through the benefits of commissioning all phases of a project, including pre-design, design, construction, and post-occupancy commissioning for new construction, and illustrate the value of commissioning existing buildings prior to renovation projects.

Building commissioning is the quality-focused process of verifying systems and subsystems to achieve the Owner’s Project Requirements.  As modern construction projects become more complex to achieve an increasing array of objectives, a structured commissioning program is required to validate new systems are installed and operable per the design intent. The quality assurance process that is commissioning yields a higher quality outcome, which saves projects time and money.

Attendees will earn 1 AIA credit for this presentation.

This event will be hosted by ZGF Architects in their Seattle office. It supports the I2SL (International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories) Emerald City Chapter’s primary mission to share real world experiences, best practices, and and new technologies that reduce waste and consumables, improve daily facility operations, and minimize energy and water use for all types of laboratories.
