Thomas Durkin, P.E.
Tom Durkin is generally recognized as the inventor of the “modern 2-pipe system.” Beginning with the first modern 2-pipe at Green Valley Elementary School in 1993, Durkin approached the age-old 2-pipe problems with a combination of innovation and common sense. The results have been nothing short of spectacular, as 2-pipe systems have been resurrected from the scrap heap of history and restored as a legitimate option for the modern built environment.
Tom earned his BSME in 1968 from Marquette University. His design work has won twelve (12) state, national and international awards, including two ASHRAE Technology Awards. He has written many articles for the ASHRAE Journal and other industry magazines, and his work has been featured in several others. Tom is a co- author of the HVAC Pump Handbook, the definitive text on all things hydronic.
