PE, LEED AP
John Weale is an Engineer Fellow who has been involved as a lead designer or key technical advisor on most of Integral Group's significant projects, including two NetZero, four LEED Platinum and five LEED Gold buildings. He is proficient in energy modeling and analysis as well as in design, and has extensive experience with highly energy efficient mechanical systems for critical environments (museums, laboratories and data centers), public spaces, and central plants. John has designed many high-efficiency systems for laboratory buildings, museums, and manufacturing buildings with specialized cooling, ventilation, exhaust, and pressurization control requirements. He is a specialist in: passive design; central plants, including modular central plants utilizing absorption (waste heat driven) and electrical chillers; optimizing exhaust air energy recovery (run around coils, flat plate heat exchangers, enthalpy wheels and heat pipes); optimizing fan systems; efficient development of robust control sequences; and controls commissioning.
