School of Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series
Friday, Feb. 22: Roger Frechette, III, PE, LEED AP
“Net-Zero Energy Renovations: American Geophysical Union Headquarters Building – A Case Study”
Join Roger Frechette, managing principal of Interface Engineering, for an informative presentation on Net-Zero Energy renovations. The presentation focuses on a methodology and approach to building renovations seeking to achieve a ‘Net-Zero Energy’ or ‘Positive Energy’ result, and will touch on many strategies currently being used in Net-Zero Energy buildings across the county.
A compelling case study for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Headquarters Building will be offered to demonstrate the process the design team used to distill available sustainable options down to a select ‘bundle’ of strategies to achieve the Net-Zero goal. Frechette will highlight both the opportunities and challenges associated with the design, construction and commissioning of Net-Zero projects.
The American Geophysical Union Headquarters building is the first building in the United States to be heated and cooled primarily from the city’s municipal sewer system. It is also the largest example of a DC direct current electrical distribution system serving the lighting and workstations. When complete, the newly renovated AGU building will be the first to achieve Net-Zero Energy in Washington, DC.
His presentation will begin at 3 pm at the CIVS Immersive Theater on the Purdue University Northwest Hammond Campus in Hammond, IN.
The Distinguished Speakers Series is FREE and open to the public and all PNW students, faculty, and staff. We hope you will join us!
