ABOUT THE SPEAKERS AND THE TOPICS:

Speaker 1: Mr. Arup Majumdar

Arup Majumdar is Director Marketing of Emerson Climate Technologies Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong.
Arup joined Emerson in 1999 as the Manager of Application Engineering - Asia Pacific, and moved on to
positions of increasing responsibility in engineering and marketing and was appointed the Director of
Marketing in the year 2002.

Prior to joining Emerson, Arup spent 8 years with Carrier Corporation in their residential air-conditioning
and transport business in Gurgaon and Bangalore India and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and his last position
was as Manager – Engineering and Manufacturing, for the transport business in India.

Arup’s area of interest is modulated system technology and he has worked extensively with the available
technologies – inverters and the Copeland Digital Scroll. He was instrumental in introducing the Digital
Scroll technology to multiple OEMs spread across Asia, Middle East, Europe and North America and
establishing this technology as a strong alternate to the incumbent Japanese inverter. He has been
awarded the Emerson Technology Award for his contribution to establishing this technology globally. Arup
is a regular speaker on modulated technologies in various industrial forums globally and has written several
technical articles on this topic.

Arup has a B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 1988 and
an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

Speaker 2: Dr. Nirmal T Kishnani

Nirmal Kishnani, PhD, trained in Architecture and is now an educator, Green design consultant and writer
based in Singapore. As design practitioner he worked on several landmark projects in Singapore until 1998
when, interest in environmental buildings, led him to a doctorate and subsequently setting up the first
Singapore-based Green design consultancy. He has since collaborated on projects across Asia, written and
lectured extensively on the subject of Greening, addressing Green Building Congresses in India, Taiwan
and the Philippines. In 2007 Nirmal accepted a position with the National University of Singapore where he
teaches sustainability at the Department of Architecture. He is also Chief Editor of the FuturArc Journal.

Dr Kishnani examines two critical questions concerning Green buildings:

      1. How we describe Green, practically and systematically, in terms of cost, targets, outcomes
      2. How we align the design and construction process towards Green goals, shaping priorities and
         breaking down mindsets

The fundamental challenge facing us today in Southeast Asia in the design of Green buildings is twofold:
acquiring knowledge of how buildings affect the environment, and knowing what to do with that knowledge
once we have acquired it. The first question of knowledge acquisition is often answered as a technical
proposition: incorporate this technology here and it will improve performance there. This mindset has its
limitations as it does not offer the project team a roadmap to decision-making. Dr. Kishnani breaks down
Greening into 4 tiers of action framing knowledge, and then relates each tier with probable outcome and
cost.

The second question of knowledge application challenges the way in which the project teams operates
during the design process. In the present-day situation, decisions and budgets are assigned to architects
and engineers who rarely consult each other on overall building performance. These disciplinary gaps –
how each profession defines performance – are a key reason behind the poor performance of many
buildings. Dr Kishnani discusses the Integrated Design Approach, a method successfully applied to the
making of high performance buildings.
