Conlan to co-instruct ASHRAE courses on virus mitigation

Wade Conlan, P.E., CxA, BCxP, LEED AP® BD+C, Hanson’s commissioning and energy discipline manager and a member of ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force and its Building Readiness Team, will co-instruct three ASHRAE Learning Institute online courses next month.

Wade will join the task force’s Schools Team members Corey Metzger, P.E., and Raj Setty, P.E., LEED AP®, CxA, to present the “Virus Mitigation in K-12 Schools: A Game Plan for Lasting IAQ Improvement” course Sept. 7. They will talk about schools’ typical heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, the evaluation method and the fiscally responsible approach to carrying out facility improvements.

The “Evaluating Your HVAC System’s Readiness to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-CoV-2” course on Sept. 15 will be led by Wade and fellow Building Readiness Team members Dennis Knight, P.E., FASHRAE, DAL, CxA, BEMP, LEED AP® N.C. and O&M, and Sarah Maston, P.E., BCxP, LEED AP®. This course will address the engineering controls that can be used on typical building systems.

And Sept. 21, Wade and Corey will discuss issues encountered when reopening colleges and universities and preparing a readiness plan during the “Reopening Universities: Managing HVAC Systems to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-CoV-2” course.
