Step 1 - RSVP

For the may meeting the program will be a rebroadcast of the April ASHRAE webcast: Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems - A Path to Balancing Energy and IEQ.Hear leading experts discuss the role of Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems in the overall HVAC system and describe various DOAS equipment configurations, characteristics, and applications. This program will identify common design and operational pitfalls, and cover challenges unique to DOAS.

The program has been approved for three (3) continuing education credits by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

Presenters will cover the following topics:

- Overview of Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems

- Architectural Considerations

- Equipment Configurations

There will also be time spend on case studies from existing installations.


TIM MCGINN, P.Eng., LEEDPrincipal, DIALOG Calgary, AB, CanadaMr. McGinn is a professional engineer and has degrees in both mechanical and electrical engineering. He is an American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers Certified High Performance Building Design Professional with extensive experience in designing mechanical and electrical systems for complex projects.

Mr. McGinn is an experienced project manager and mechanical designer having been involved in major new building projects and significant renovations and planning projects for over 27 years. He is experienced in the analysis and design of HVAC&R for educational, institutional and commercial facilities including central heating and cooling plants, industrial refrigeration, process utilities and large piped distribution systems. Tim’s real passion is a specialization in designing low impact/low energy systems for green buildings that maximize indoor environmental quality. As a result, Tim is a frequent lecturer on the design of green buildings throughout North America. He is an outspoken proponent of the Integrated Design Process and often leads project teams through the integrated design and LEED Certification processes.

His green building design expertise includes low temperature heating and high temperature cooling systems, radiant heating and cooling, passive, direct and indirect evaporative cooling, displacement and underfloor air systems, mixed mode natural ventilation, grey water reuse and passive solar heating.

Tim is based in Calgary and is a principal with DIALOG, a 500-person architectural, engineering, interior design and urban design firm with offices in Vancouver, BC; Calgary & Edmonton, AB; Regina, SK; and, Toronto, ON.

Professor, Pennsylvania State University University Park, PA Dr. Stanley Mumma is currently Professor Emeritus of Architectural Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining Penn State in 1984, he was a General Motors Corporation project engineer for three years between his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati, and his graduate work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since earning his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 1974, under the mentorship of Dr. Will Stoecker, he has also held faculty positions at Ohio State University and Arizona State University. In the first third of his academic career, his research focused principally on solar and alternate energy. Then his interests changed to innovative ways of meeting ASHRAE Standard 62 in an energy efficient fashion. That work has led to his current intense interest in dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS). He writes extensively on the subject (see Two of his publications were recipients of ASHRAE best paper awards. He has also received ASHRAE’s Distinguished Service Award, the E.K. Campbell Award of Merit, and the grade of Fellow.


JOHN MURPHY, LEED AP Applications Engineer, Trane John has been with Trane since 1993, where he has been involved in development, training, and support activities related to HVAC systems. His primary responsibility as an applications engineer is to aid system design engineers and Trane sales personnel in the proper design and application of HVAC systems. His main areas of expertise include energy efficiency, dehumidification, dedicated outdoor-air systems, air-to-air energy recovery, psychrometry, and VAV systems. John is the author of numerous Trane application manuals and Engineers Newsletters, and is a frequent presenter on Trane’s Engineers Newsletter Live series of satellite broadcasts. He is also a LEED® Accredited Professional.

John is a member of ASHRAE and has authored several articles for the ASHRAE Journal. He is a past member of the society’s “Moisture Management in Buildings” technical committee and former chair of the “Mechanical Dehumidifiers” technical committee. He was a contributing author of the Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 Schools and the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Hospitals and Health Care Facilities, and a technical reviewer for the ASHRAE Guide for Buildings in Hot and Humid Climates.

Prior to his work with Trane, John received his BSME from Iowa State University, specializing in HVAC analysis and design.
