ASHRAE and the Association of Facilities Engineering recently signed a memorandum of understanding, which outlines how the two groups can work together toward promotion of 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.

“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 said.

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. Through research, standards writing, publishing, certification and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today. More information can be found at www.ashrae.org/news.

Founded in 1915, The Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE), McLean, Virginia, is a professional organization that promotes the optimal operation of plants, grounds and offices at Fortune 500 manufacturers, universities, medical centers, government agencies and high-rise office buildings from around the world. AFE provides education, certification, technical information and other relevant resources to plant and facility engineering, operation and maintenance professionals worldwide
