Autodesk to Participate in HVACR Week

Autodesk, Inc., has been designated the Elite Host Sponsor of the 2009 Engineering Green Buildings Conference & Expo, one of the three components of HVACR Week, which will beheld 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 and HVACR Week. 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 first-ever HVACR Week will include HVAC Comfortech, the new Commercial HVACR Symposium and the EGB Conference & Expo. It will be a single, comprehensive mega event covering the gamut of the HVACR industry, from design to installation to maintenance and service. Residential and commercial HVACR contractors will join designing/specifying engineers to learn about the latest trends in the industry and the best business improvement tactics. Plus, the top manufacturers and industry suppliers will be on hand to show off their latest products and services.
