SELECTED PROJECTS

 

DUBAI WORLD EXPO 2020

Mass Energy modelling for LEED NC - 2016

LEED compliance energy modelling  for 20 residential building within 10 weeks using IES VE. To achieve this careful planning an development of Revit templates, python scripts to edit gbxml, mining results from reports and populating excel spreadsheets for LEED submittal.

CATALINAS IRSA TOWER

Energy Performance analysis for LEED NC - 2016

Buenos Aires -18.000 m2 office building .  
My role was to do energy simulation to analyse early design and suggest cost effective strategies to achieve the target performance for LEED certification. During design development consulted about the impact of changes. The project is currently under construction.

JP MORGAN CHASE

Mission Critical Commissioning - 2016

Buenos Aires. Data Centre. Took over the Critical Commissioning at the final stages of the Cx plan. I was in charge of managing and reporting the tests of all M&E systems including cold water plant and CRAC units, electrical power distribution, backup UPS and generators systems.

URBANA - PEPSI CO.  MCDONALD'S

LEED O&M Energy and air quality - 2015

Carried out energy and Interior Air Quality audits and retro-commissioning to identify operational problems. Compliance with ASHRAE 62.1, a 20% energy saving and balanced ventilation rates achieved with minimal investment by returning HVAC operation to how it was originally  designed.

SANTANDER BANK

Building Performance for LEED NC - 2015

Buenos Aires -12.000 m2 Santander Bank Buenos Aires central Office. My role was to do energy, lighting and comfort  simulation to analyse early design and suggest cost effective strategies to achieve the target performance for LEED certification. During design development consulted about the impact of changes. The project is currently under construction.

GALICIA BANK

LEED NC feasability study - 2015

Argentina, 300 m2 Bank.
My role was to analyse the existing bank branch design to assess the feasibility of achieving different levels of LEED Certification. Run Energy, lighting Comfort and CFD analysis.
Supplied four different proposals generating savings of up to 70% in total energy and the possibility of being the first NetZero building in the region using roof area for PV generation.

TETRAPAK OFFICE AND WAREHOUSE

Energy efficiency for LEED NC -  2013

Buenos Aires, 6000 m2 Mixed used office and manufacturing warehouse with new and existing building retrofits. My role was to do energy modelling for compliance. Existing building systems had to be surveyed and simulation results were contrasted with actual energy use.

OSDE

Energy Modelling for LEED NC - 2013 to 2016

Five projects around Argentina, a total of 15.000 m2 of office building.  My role was to do energy modelling for compliance and check the systems and lighting design form compliance with mandatory provisions of ASHRAE standards.

BUENOS AIRES CITY GOVERNMENT OFFICE (A FOSTER + PARTNERS PROJECT)

Thermal Confort analysis for LEED NC -  March 30, 2015

Buenos Aires, 38.000 m2 Office building. My role was to document the compliance of ASHRAE 55-2010. Since the project involved complex systems  chilled beams + UFAD displacement ventilation and big open spaces, the job involved measuring temperatures, analyse and documenting CFD report and describing how all discomfort risks scenarios were avoided.

SKF

Building performance analysis for LEED NC

March 2012

Buenos Aires, 6.000 m2 mixed use, Office and workshop. My role was to achieve building performance required for LEED. Energy and lighting simulations were done starting at early design and finishing with building in operation.  Cost effective energy measures were proposed to achieve up to 32% energy saving for 90.1 PRM.

COMODORO RIVADAVIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Early Performance analysis for LEED NC - March 30, 2014

Comodoro Rivadavia, 7.100 m2
My role was to do energy,  simulation to analyse early design and suggest cost effective strategies to achieve the target performance for LEED certification.

TANGO SC JOHNSON & SON

Energy modelling for LEED NC - March 30, 2011

Buenos Aires, 12.000 m2 Office. My role was to do energy modelling for compliance and check the systems and lighting design form compliance with mandatory provisions of ASHRAE standards.
