There was a strong turn out for the February Chapter Meeting, which featured a presentation by Sherman Hamlett, sales manager at Fantech, about MakeUp Air Systems (MUAS) and the latest technology to move air from the outside into building interiors to replace air that is exhausted through ventilation or combustion.
Fantech is a leading manufacturer and distributor of ventilation products to improve air quality in residential and commercial applications.
At the luncheon, SN-ICC President Sam Palmer, right, on behalf of IAS President Chuck Ramani, presented a plaque to Past President Majid Pakniat.
The International Accreditation Service at ICC lauded Pakniat for his service to the council and the industry. Ramani was a guest speaker at the chapter's Installation and Awards Banquet in January.
Chapter meeting attendees heard an update about UNLV's entry in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Competition.
Dr. David James, associate professor of civil engineering and director of Solar and Renewable Energy Programs at UNLV, told the group that UNLV's Team Las Vegas took first place for Innovation and second place for both Engineering and Architecture. Overall, the team placed eighth among 11 national and international teams that competed.
SN-ICC contributed $35,000 over a two year period to the UNLV entry, which incorporated "aging in place" features and technologies to meet the needs of the aging population.
