Have an attendance code?

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


This webinar will bring together a panel of industry experts to talk about the rapid advancements in deploying alternate air purifying technologies due to the Covid pandemic. Although these technologies aren’t new, they are seeing a resurgence in deployment outside of specialty facilities because of building owners’ desire to improve the indoor air quality of occupied spaces as employees, students, and occupants return to their buildings.

The panel will start with a basic understanding of how their technologies work and offer things to consider when applying the technology and special considerations that should be made when commissioning the installation followed up by a moderated Q&A session.


  • Geremy Wolff - McKinstry

    Mr. Wolff’s commissioning experience began in 1998 after graduating with a mechanical engineering degree working for McKinstry, a facility solution company that performs commissioning, consulting services, service and maintenance, energy services, and design/build MEDP services. He was initially trained to perform Test Adjust and Balance (TAB) work on large new construction projects. After a short period he moved into control system verification and eventually leadership of the onsite project commissioning team and process. This included several projects where an extended operations transition solution was provided ranging from 3–9 months’ onsite post-occupancy during which systems were fine-tuned, operating and maintenance procedures were written and enhanced training was provided to the facility operations staff. His projects ranged in size from tenant improvements to multi-million-dollar projects such as Century Link Field, data centers, hospitals, biotech research facilities, and large campus expansions for both public and private clients. The exposure to these unique and diverse projects enabled him to cultivate an extensive background in design, construction, commissioning, and building operations.

  • Chris Lawrence – LTG-INC

    Predominantly focused on the market development of low energy hydronic solutions including Decentralized ventilation, low energy fan coils, chilled beams, radiant panels, sails and UVC recirculation for COVID disinfection, Chris is based out of Athens, Georgia, where is lives with his wife, daughter & son.

    He graduated with a degree in Mechanical & Production engineering and furthered his studies in business management at Canfield University. He transferred to the US in 2004 and became a US citizen in 2011.

    Chris has spent the last 2 years working for LTG Inc. pioneering their Decentralized Pulse ventilation solution in the US & Canada. Prior to that he spent 35 years with TROX where he eventually managed the North American subsidiary. Chris has also worked for two competitors during his time in the US, Dadanco and Price Industries, which has given him a better perspective of the US market.

    He has worked on thousands of buildings in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the United States. Amongst his many successes, he secured the orders for the largest chilled beam installation (at that time) in Europe, NAP, which had approximately 18 km (11.2 miles) of passive beams and the largest active chilled beam job (to date) in the US, the Constitution Center, D.C. at 1.4m/SF with over 7000 beams.
    He has 42 years of experience in the selection and application of HVAC products such as air distribution, attenuation, VAV, CAV, filtration, air control and isolation and nuclear HVAC and with over 28 years in the application of chilled ceilings, passive and active chilled beams and replacement induction units with the last 16 years being based in North America.

    Chris is considered one of the pioneers in the application of chilled beams in the US and was involved with many of the early major chilled beam projects including the passive chilled beam installations for Fidelity with a combined total of over 3500 beams. Chris has also applied chilled beams at many of the major universities including MIT, Harvard, Penn State, O.H.S.U., L.M.U., Stanford, U.N.L.V., Brown, Princeton, U of A, A.S.U., UC Davis and laboratories at Tahoe, Genome, U.C.S.C., Stanford, Princeton, Porter Neuroscience Research Center and U.W. School of Medicine, which is considered the largest laboratory applications of chilled beams in North America.

    He has been successful in the application of this low energy technology into the healthcare, K-12 education, and government/commercial office sectors.

    He has promoted his employers technologies in the following counties during his career, England, Scotland, Wales & Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Hong Kong (now China), Brazil, Mexico, North America and Canada.
    He is a member of ASHRAE.

    LTG Inc, are a wholly owned subsidiary of LTG Aktiengesellschaft, who were established in 1924 in Stuttgart, Germany. LTG Inc. has been present in North American for over 30 years and has predominantly operate in the Automotive and textile sectors. Chris was recruited by LTG Inc. to reproduce the success of the parent companies European HVAC sales here in North American & Canada.

    As we all fight in the war to overcome the COVOID-19 pandemic, Chris has focused on solutions that either provide more outside air or disinfect airborne virus using recirculation & UVC.
