Atlanta — May 17, 2016 — ASHRAE and the Association of Facilities Engineering recently signed a memorandum of understanding, which outlines how the two groups can work together to promote common endeavors.
Under the agreement, ASHRAE and AFE will look for ways to work together in regard to advocacy, chapter collaboration, conferences and meetings, education, and technical activities.
“AFE is focused on the optimal operation of plants, grounds, and offices at a variety of built environment locations, such as medical centers and Fortune 500 companies, so working with them is a natural fit for ASHRAE,” ASHRAE President David Underwood said.
AFE President Roy Nation said, “With buildings and facilities systems worldwide becoming more complex, ASHRAE’s many publications, but especially their code-intended documents, are a necessity for our membership as well as the success of facility operations worldwide.”
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The society and its more than 55,000 members worldwide focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration, and sustainability.
