Join to learn about the rapidly growing MEP 2040 program with firms making commitments to take specific actions, including reducing refrigerants, requesting data from manufacturers, and becoming active participants in industry-wide efforts to decarbonize building systems.
“All systems engineers shall advocate for and achieve net zero carbon in their projects: operational carbon by 2030 and embodied carbon by 2040.”
Presentation by Kayleigh Houde:
Kayleigh Houde is a mechanical engineer working at the intersection of computation, design and engineering as the global Computational Community Leader for Buro Happold. Her portfolio includes system design for high rise residential and higher education facilities. Houde’s strong interest in computational design led to her current role and has taken her to Dubai, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Edinburgh, London, Warsaw and Berlin- with the goal of supercharging her colleague’s workflows with the power of computation via both visual programming and coding. Her industry contributions include speaking engagements like Engineering News Record Future Tech, AEC Tech and Autodesk University, being a recipient of the AIA 2020 Innovation Award for her team’s open source Life Cycle Assessment Toolkit, and co-chairing the steering committee for Carbon Leadership Forum’s MEP2040 Challenge.
