New committees on educational, health care and judicial facilities are being formed by the Atlanta, GA, U.S.-based American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to draw upon the expertise of its members in these areas.
The committees will hold their first meetings at ASHRAE's 2004 Annual Meeting, June 26-30, Nashville, TN, U.S.
"Educational, health care and judicial facilities currently are addressed by ASHRAE's technical committee on large building air-conditioning applications (TC 9.8)," Mark Hegberg, chair of ASHRAE's Technical Activities Committee, said in a prepared written statement. "Creating these separate committees will allow us to address these specific areas of technical expertise with focused groups unencumbered by competing building function discussions."
The committees also serve as a rallying point for people interested in these specific technical areas who may not be aware of the discussions that would occur in another technical committee, he said.
