USA: ASHRAE has signed a memorandum of understanding with the US Association of Facilities Engineering.

Under the agreement, ASHRAE and AFE say they 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 centres and Fortune 500 companies, so working with them is a natural fit for ASHRAE,” said ASHRAE president David Underwood.

“With buildings and facilities systems world-wide 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,” AFE president Roy Nation commented.
