Online News-- "Green" Sessions Announced at ASHRAE Winter Meeting
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers' guide on sustainable building design will be introduced as part of its 2004 Winter Meeting technical program. The meeting will be held Jan. 24-28, Anaheim, CA.
"The ASHRAE GreenGuide was written to give guidance to HVAC&R designers, enabling them to participate effectively on a green design team," editor David Grumman, P.E., Grumman/Butkus Associates, Evanston, IL, said. "Design engineers can use the guide to get ideas and guidance of what to do, where to turn, what to advise and how to interact with other team members in a productive way."
Grumman will present an overview of the book as part of a seminar, ASHRAE's GreenGuide, Green Buildings and LEED(TM), 10:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 25. The GreenGuide is scheduled to be available at the meeting.
