“The Cold Facts About VRF” 
1.0 HSW/LU

Tim Chatterton, PE • RMF Engineering

Since the introduction of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Systems in Japan more than 30 years ago, architects have been struggling to understand the benefits of their application in commercial buildings.  Like ductless minisplits, VRFs use refrigerant as the cooling and heating medium. This refrigerant is conditioned by a single outdoor condensing unit, and is circulated within the building to multiple fan-coil units (FCUs). This course will identify the pro’s and con’s of utilizing VRF systems, lessons learned, and what architects need to know about the differences between this type of cooling system, and traditional HVAC systems.

7:00 – 8:00 PM

“Engineering Regulations Creating Architectural Challenges” 
1.0 HSW/LU
Kevin Parsons • Becker Morgan Group, Civil Engineering Division

Stormwater Management is a heady topic in this coastal region, and Architects have a responsibility to Owners to be knowledgeable of the effect environmental site design has on their building. This course will define stormwater management and why it is important, and review forest conservation, wetland, and critical area impacts on Architects in Maryland, including the use of Maryland MERLIN Online to determine impacts on design. Attendees will learn about multiple types of practices to achieve stormwater management based on site characteristics, and the process for regulatory review in Maryland.
