Viega 2015 Radiant Training Seminars
Scheduled for Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
Viega announces two radiant training seminars in 2015 for
design-build contractors and engineers.
Viega, in collaboration with the Center for the Built
Environment (CBE), at University of California, Berkeley, is
holding the one-day training courses, titled, “Energy and
Comfort Performance of Radiant Slab Systems.” The courses
are co-presented by Fred Bauman, a prominent scientist at
CBE, and Jason McKinnon, director of training, Viega.
Viega recently announced a partnership with the CBE.
Educating the industry on new and more efficient
technologies for commercial integrated hydronics systems was
one of the initial goals of the association between the two
The radiant training seminars are scheduled for May 13, 2015
in Washington D.C. and November 3, 2015 in San Francisco.
The seminars will teach how radiant systems work, heat
transfer fundamentals, energy use and thermal comfort in
comparison to conventional all-air systems. Project examples
and design guidance will also be covered.

seminars provide a wealth of industry knowledge,” said Mark
Parent, director of product management, Viega. “There is a lack
of industry knowledge when it comes to radiant heating and
cooling. Our hope is to help educate the industry on newer and
more efficient technologies when designing commercial integrated
CBE is leading a research program on advanced integrated systems
with a focus on radiant slab cooling, also known as thermally
activated building systems (TABS). CBE recently accepted a $3
million grant over the next three years on radiant slab systems
to research methods for optimizing radiant systems for energy
efficiency and comfort.
