The Energy Management Association (EMA) is teaming up with the newest Associate member GF Piping Systems to host a free AIA-approved webinar that will discuss best practices for water management and how to further optimize your water plan by integrating automation tools. Historically, premise plumbing systems have been designed, installed, and operated without the ability to quickly and easily monitor their operation, making effective building water management time consuming and difficult. In this presentation, the presenters will review the impact of common building water issues, principles of effective water management, and how emerging automation technology supports key water management objectives, including fundamental legionella control strategies, improved user experience, and plumbing system optimization. Attendees include: commissioning providers, building owners and facilities managers, energy managers, MEP engineers, HVAC testing professionals, and other building professionals. Presenter: Greg Swafford, CPD, GPD, GF Piping Systems. Cost: Free. Time: 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Continuing Education Credits: AIA 1 LU.
