Jeremy Fauber, PE, LEED AP BD+C, 36 Senior Mechanical Engineer, Heapy Engineering, Dayton, Ohio BS Mechanical Engineering, University of Dayton
Fauber has worked at Heapy Engineering since 2003. He is responsible for HVAC design, specifications, and cost estimating, and has designed systems for commercial buildings and education, health care, retirement, and communication facilities. He also has experience designing facilities that use geothermal technology. As a senior mechanical engineer, Fauber oversees construction projects with budgets as large as $200 million throughout Ohio. He is primarily involved in designing mechanical systems for the health care market. Whether it's sound attenuation, energy conservation, or appearances of exposed HVAC equipment, he integrates both function and aesthetics into his designs. Fauber has been involved in the construction of numerous USGBC LEED projects, including the first LEED Gold hospital in Ohio, Diley Ridge Medical Center, along with multiple LEED certified projects for the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission. He has been instrumental in implementing new approaches and technologies in the company's diverse projects. As a mechanical engineer, he performs whole-building energy simulations and provides engineering support that includes load calculations, envelope heat transfer evaluation, and moisture migration calculations. He is recognized by his colleagues for his geothermal designs with a dozen systems in operation. He has also performed numerous studies on natural ventilation, radiant heating and cooling, and overall environmental thermal comfort. Fauber is heavily involved in the local ASHRAE chapter. Most recently, he presented at the National ASHRAE conference in Chicago. In his spare time, Fauber is active in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami Valley.
