|Autodesk, Inc., has been designated the Elite Host Sponsor of the 2009 Engineering Green Buildings Conference & Expo, which will be one of three components of HVACR Week, September 21 – 26 at the Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, TN. |
As Elite Host Sponsor, Autodesk will have a significant and unique role in the EGB event: featuring an exhibit to meet face-to-face with attendees, as well as sponsoring an hour-long presentation on Sustainable Design and Energy Retrofits.
The addition of Autodesk as a key sponsor significantly enhances the value of the EGB Conference & Expo. Autodesk is a pioneer in the world of computer-aided design (CAD) for architects, engineers and contractors. Attendees will now have the opportunity to meet with company representatives to learn more about its mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) solutions, including building information modeling (BIM).
In addition, the bonus Autodesk-sponsored session will provide invaluable education on how to use conceptual design modeling and analysis tools to make better decisions earlier in the design process. The session, titled “SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND ENERGY RETROFITS: A COLLABORATIVE DIGITAL WORKFLOW,” will convene from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, Thursday, September 24. Presenter Robert E. Middlebrooks, AIA, an Autodesk Industry Programs Manager with extensive experience in digital design and BIM implementation, will outline how the collaborative process combined with the latest design and modeling technology, can aid in the design of more efficient sustainable buildings.
The EGB Conference & Expo is the only green-design event focused on green engineering
practices as they apply to the design, installation, operation and maintenance of mechanical systems for non-residential buildings. The event offers specialized training sessions as well as an exposition of related products and services.
