S13: The Communications Role of Integrated Engineering Design for Green Buildings

Presented by Consulting-Specifying Engineering Magazine
Integrated design doesn’t happen naturally. A lot of non-standard communications happens on a project’s front end, during pre-design, and throughout the design and construction process. Stressing the communications aspect of projects, this interactive session examines the roles of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers working in a more integrated fashion with owners, architects, commissioning providers, and operators on green-building projects.

This is will be a lot of fun because I get to discuss how Adobe applied the LEED principles to our home office to become Platinum LEED Certified (click here to see the my blog entry on Adobe Going Green)

Next I whisk to the Connect Room for another in our Wednesday Series for Acrobat in the AEC industry. This session will be Using Acrobat Forms Designer to link forms to a Database or XML Schema, (click here to register) This will get you moving on dynamic forms and how to get into the guts of the database. This one will fulfill your innernerd!

Lastly for the day I will do another webinar on Enhancing your 2D and 3D documents using Acrobat 3D version 8! What will I cover you ask….

Please join Adobe and Bentley at this informative, one-hour live eSeminar on Wednesday, May 16 at 11 am PT to learn how you can:

Publish and share 2D/3D CAD content from MicroStation—with anyone using Acrobat 3D—for more comprehensive reviews.


Improve presentations by quickly and easily capturing 2D/3D designs, drawings, and project data into one simple, powerful PDF.

Increase project quality and accuracy with secure electronic exchange of 2D/3D designs—to help save time and money.

Now you don’t need to be a Microstation User to gain some great tips and tricks from this one you can sign up here.

In my next entry, I will recap my last weeks with notes from FIATECH, BE Conference and AIA. So stay tuned. Also, stay tuned for VIDEO’s coming soon!

So, please put some life in you life and if you forgot to tell mom you love her take the time now to do so, because if Momma is happy, everyone is happy!

    I’m not sure that you take questions here, but I’m going to give it a try. I am a little more than an amature user of AutoCAD trying to convert my drawings to pdf using Adobe Acrobat. I am currently using Adobe 8.0. This is my delima. I have a drawing that I rotated to print. I closed the file, without saving it. I then reopened it and then converted it to pdf. My problem is that part of the title stayed rotated after the conversion. I have tried resaving and doing another conversion without success. I’m really stumped because the original drawing is correct. Would appreciate any help you have to offer. Thanks!
