Article Summary: 

The 2019 Buildings XIV International Conference, held every three years in Clearwater, Florida, is a building science conference sponsored by ASHRAE and the US Department of Energy. Dr. John Straube, an expert in building science, shares insights about the conference, including the importance of staying informed about new tools, solutions, and young professionals in the industry, as well as giving back to the industry by sharing knowledge with other participants. Straube also discusses the highlights of the conference, such as learning about common practices in Europe, which may not be published in papers, and the insights of keynote speakers, particularly the need to assess different trades and climates for unique solutions. Finally, Straube also highlights the importance of bridging foundational research with practical applications, and how all of RDH’s papers presented at the conference achieve this.
