March 8-10, 2021 | Virtual Conference

 

The 2021 ASHRAE Virtual Design and Construction Conference takes place March 8-10, 2021.

 

The inaugural conference seeks to fill a need for ASHRAE members and practitioners using or planning to apply virtual design and construction in the design, construction and operation of HVAC systems. 

 

The conference will provide an in depth look at the current  state-of-the-industry and near future outlook in such areas as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), machine learning, LiDAR Mapping, photogrammetry, and “digital twin” technologies as they are currently being applied to integrated design, building information modeling, project management, cost estimating, scheduling and sequencing, pre-fabrication, off-site construction, modular construction, robotics and automated installation, 3D printing, facility management, asset management and operations.

 

The proposed conference theme is “Reality – how advanced technologies are being used today; and, Potential – new applications for advanced technologies.” The program will include invited speakers and a call for presentations.

 

The conference scope encompasses the design, construction and operation of HVAC systems in the Built Environment through the use of advanced technologies. 

 

The content will emphasize case studies with specific “how-to, how we did it, what we plan to do next to improve,” current best practices. 

 

Some specific topics include:

 

  • Virtual Reality (VR)
  • Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Digital Twin
  • Pre-fabrication
  • Off-site Construction
  • Modular Construction
  • Generative Design
  • Digital Practice
  • Integrated design and construction
  • Applying VR and AR to training and assisting building operators and service providers
  • Asset Management and Operation
