ASHRAE Evening Cork Technical Presentation – December 2019
PresentationTitle: - High Performance in Building Operation
Date and Time: – 10thDecember 2019. 6.00pm for 6.30pm. Tea and Coffee will be provided.
Location: Lecture Theatre IT3 BerkeleyCentre, Cork Institute of Technology
Frank Caul is Co-Founder at RemoteHVAC anddespite insisting to whomever will listen that he is fully retired, hecontinues to be instrumental in guiding the technological development of theBuilding Performance Monitoring software. He has over forty years experience inthe heating ventilation and air conditioning business, and began his career asa Refrigeration Apprentice and spent many years in the Commissioning Departmentof HA O’Neill’s before departing to Saudi Arabia as an HVAC Engineer. On hisreturn to Ireland in the mid-eighties opportunities for employment were thin onthe ground so Frank started his own company, which went on to become SirusGroup employing more than 100 people across Ireland. Sirus was acquired by theinternational building controls company Sauter AG in 2018.
On a sunny evening with a gentle breeze in theair he will most likely be found sailing the high seas of Cork Harbour.
Tony O’Keeffe, Managing Director, RemoteHVAC
Tony O’Keeffe is Managing Director atRemoteHVAC, a software platform providing building performance monitoring forcost saving and sustainability. With more than 10 years of Energy and ProjectManagement experience, he is obsessed with finding ways to analyse and improvethe operational performance of the built environment. His industry experienceincludes optimising HVAC and Controls systems, equipment upgrades for energyefficiency and Energy Performance Contracts; one of which received the 2013SEAI Energy Award in the Small Business Category. This experience has come tofruition with his current role in product design and business development forRemoteHVAC.
Outside of buildings, not in a literal sense, hecan normally be found chasing after his sons Fionn and Oisín. He is keptrelatively sane by Claire, his Clinical Psychologist wife, and on the rarest ofoccasions he finds time to run, cycle and swing a golf club...neverconcurrently.
Tony’s educational experience includes an MBAfrom Trinity College Dublin Business School, an MSc in Energy Management fromDublin Institute of Technology and a BEng in Mechanical Engineering from CorkInstitute of Technology.
The objective of this presentation is todemonstrate the key benefits of building performance monitoring and itseffective use to achieve comfortable, healthy and sustainable buildings.Performance monitoring and management can;
● Improve the health, well-being and productivity ofoccupants
● Reduce operating costs and increased energyefficiency
● Enhance the value and attractiveness of thebuilding asset
● Achieve proactive and efficient HVAC maintenance
● Help bridge the gap between operating and designperformance
● Provide essential data for sustainabilityreporting such as LEED and BREEAM.
- Demonstrate how automated analysis of BMS data and other building data can help move from reactive to a more proactive, evidence based and data driven approach to building management and operations.
- Demonstrate how performance monitoring and data analysis of the building and its HVAC systems can provide opportunities for optimisation.
- Provide a practical insight into how a standard commercial building can be transformed into a smart, connected and more sustainable building.
This presentation will be of interest toBuilding Managers, Facility Design & Maintenance Engineers, EngineeringConsultants, Installing Contractors, Engineering Students and their Lecturers.
This event qualifies for 1.5hrs CPD.
