The Electro Expo runs Tuesday, March 10 through Thursday, March 12, with the majority of the events hosted at the Cleveland Convention Center. The educational conference has tracks on power, lighting, low voltage systems, and clean energy.

Registration is free.

BIM is the Future & BIM is Now

Speakers: Rocco Gallo, LEED AP, Vice President and Director of Electrical (Karpinski Engineering); Emy McGann, BIM Manager (Karpinski Engineering); Richard Gofman, PE (Zenith Systems)

Description: “This course will provide an overview and definition of Building Information Modeling (BIM), key points to successful BIM implementation, advantages of BIM from both a design professional and contractor point of view. Will review a real world example of using BIM to facilitate pre-fabrication.” (from the course description)

Time: Offered at two time slots. Wednesday, March 11, at 10:30am and Thursday, March 12, at 1:00pm

Continuing Education: Ohio Construction Industry Licensing Board (OCILB) – 1.5 continuing education unit – Technology; Professional Development Hour (PDH) 1 credit unit

Panel: Energy Savings and Efficiency in Healthcare Facilities

Moderator: Shawn Callahan, Senior Project Engineer (Karpinski Engineering)

Panelists: Joe Hofstetter, PE, CEM, LEED AP, Director of Building Performance and Sustainability (Karpinski Engineering); Paul Slebodnik, Facilities Director, Operations and Maintenance-Main Campus (Cleveland Clinic); Dale J. Kondik, PE CEM, Sr. Manager Healthcare Showcase, (Johnson Controls)

Description: “Health care construction is thriving. With so much new construction underway, the time to take a look at energy strategies for hospitals is now. There are many reasons why hospitals are so energy-intensive. Hospitals operate 24 hours a day and aim to provide patient comfort and optimum health care at the push of the emergency call button. Hospitals are bound by stringent medical standards and ventilation requirements. New technology has set the energy meter spinning even faster. Modern hospitals include sophisticated pieces of medical equipment that are major energy users. Operating rooms also are large power consumers both in environmental controls and equipment demands. These small individual energy users add to the internal load of today’s hospital building. Join the panelists as they discuss their industry expertise on energy saving strategies.” (from the course description)

Time: Thursday, March 12, at 10:30am
