Digital Transformation in The Building Industry
(ASHRAE Presidential Address)
Charles Gulledge, III
ASHRAE President 2020-2021


Digital transformation is not simply associated with adopting new technical solutions. Knowledge needs to be captured and linked in such a way that ALL relevant stakeholders’ benefit. Doing so requires understanding of how to collect, store, and analyze data; so that it is insightful and actionable. The ASHRAE Digital Lighthouse and Industry 4.0 focuses on reimagining the building industry by not only integrating industry segments, but technology. This presentation will examine how WE will lead the industry in becoming a part of the digital transformation that will guide the building industry into the next decade and beyond.



2:15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

New Methods to Verify Proper Functioning of Modern Fume Hood Systems
Thomas C. Smith

Laboratory fume hoods are still the primary means of protecting people working in labs with hazardous airborne materials.  However, fume hood systems are becoming increasingly more complex.  The introduction of new technologies to control and modulate airflow and with new fume hood design features require new and different test methods.  The safety and health of users and the ability to reduce energy consumption may depend on application of appropriate test methods.  The most recent ASHRAE 110 “Method of Testing Performance of Laboratory Fume Hoods” was published in 2016.  This presentation will discuss proper techniques for measuring face velocity, evaluating variable air volume flow response and diagnosing problems affecting fume hood containment performance.  New methods under development to simply and reduce the costs of conducting fume hood tracer gas tests will also be discussed.
