WASHINGTON — ASHRAE recently presented Dennis Stanke, staff application engineer, Trane, with a High Performance Building award.

Stanke chairs the committee for ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. Stanke oversaw publication of the 2011 version of the standard, which provides a green building foundation for those who strive to design, build, and operate high performance buildings.

The honor was presented during High Performance Building Week, May 14-19. This week was created to give special recognition to the health, safety, and welfare impacts of buildings, along with the opportunities to design, construct, and operate high performance buildings that reflect concern for these impacts. Events were held to highlight the importance of high performance buildings to federal, state, and local policymakers and the general public.

The High Performance Building Congressional Caucus Coalition (HPBCCC), a 150-plus-organization consortium established by ASHRAE in 2008, oversaw honorary activities.
