Burying Mistakes: When a GSHP Designer Trusts but Does Not Verify
Geothermal design engineers should be actively engaged in their projects from conceptualization to commissioning in order to ensure that the intent of their designs are fulfilled and operating as planned. It is very important for an engineer to oversee the beginning of construction after receiving a building permit by participating in meetings, submittal reviews, site inspections, and system start-up. The risk of delegating this responsibility to others has many implications including the possibility for litigation.

Electrifying NEW Construction: Commercial & Multi-Family Focus
New construction presents an ideal opportunity to get it right the first time! While not yet a hard requirement, avoiding fossil fuels in favor of electric heat pumps can be done today with a little creativity. This session will highlight two projects that use a combination of innovative design, maximizing incentives and the right financing to achieve zero emissions buildings. Plus we’ll hear about NYSERDA’s New Construction program with available technical and financial support, which can complement the NYS Clean Heat incentives for commercial construction across New York State.
