11:10 am - 11:30 am CASE STUDY: Clean room HVAC design

Mohamed Al Beltagy, Head of Mechanical Department,,Howeedy Consultant
A clean room is a controlled environment, where products are manufactured or processes are performed. The HVAC design of such an environment must maintain the concentration of airborne particles to be within certain limits. This concept is widely implemented in electronics industries, pharmaceutical industries, biopharmaceutical industries, food industries, medical devices industries, operating rooms and measurement laboratories. The presentation shall go through the clean room classes, the relevant air pattern types and HVAC design.

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm WORKSHOP: Building automation

Drive sustainability through environmental stewardship to obtain green building certification and reduce operating costs through building automation and control systems that can contribute to reaching those goals. Review general benefits of control systems and strategies for achieving sustainability goals. Building automation has the most impact on the Energy and Atmosphere (EandA) section of the LEED rating system. This section also carries the most potential for LEED points. But points are possible in the Indoor Environmental Quality and Water Efficiency sections, as well as the Sustainable Sites section.

Attend this workshop to:

  1. Understand how to drive higher energy efficiency
  2. Learn how to lower operations and maintenance costs
  3. Discover best practices in improving indoor quality and occupant comfort

2:00 pm - 2:05 pm Chairperson’s closing remarks

2:05 pm - 3:00 pm Networking lunch

3:00 pm - 3:00 pm End of conference day one

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.
