ASHRAE St. Louis Chapter Annual Technology Awards

Every year, ASHRAE asks its members to submit projects for the annual Technology Awards.  These awards recognize both your and your client’s dedication to energy efficient, green design.  Projects eligible for this award can fall under the following categories for new or existing buildings or retro-commissioning projects:  Commercial Buildings, Institutional Buildings, Healthcare Facilities, Industrial & Process Facilities, Public Assembly, or Residential.  There can be multiple winners in each category!

The submission deadline is March 2nd, 2017.  If you have any projects you think may qualify, just follow the instructions on the simple 2 page form and send it to Chad Adler, CTTC Chairman, at chad.b.adler@jci.com.

The Technology Awards are a great way to recognize both your client’s and your own dedication to green design.  Both the engineer of record and the client will receive plaques recognizing them for their dedication to energy efficiency.  The plaques will be awarded at the Spring awards program where the engineer and client will also receive complimentary meals and the engineer will present his or her project.

If you have any questions or have projects you would like to nominate, please contact Chad Adler at 314.812.4537.  More information regarding the Technology Awards can be found at here.
