ATLANTA — ASHRAE is currently holding its 2018 Winter Conference at the Palmer House in Chicago. The technical program includes tracks on what ASHRAE is most known for — standards, fundamentals and applications, systems, and equipment — including industry trends in resiliency and modeling throughout a building’s life cycle, and tracks addressing specific disciplines, such as transportation air conditioning, tall buildings, and heat exchange equipment.

“Engineers and designers continue to advance designs to reduce the ecological impact of our built environment on the world around us,” said Michael Collarin, chair of the 2018 ASHRAE Winter Conference. “It has practically become second nature. However, and seemingly more so in recent years, the industry has needed to take steps to mitigate the impact of the world around us on our built environment. This is especially the case in our transportation, government, and mission-critical arenas, where the loss of critical infrastructure can have severe consequences, including the loss of life. The tracks and programs for the Winter Conference will focus on resources to design, build, control, commission, and operate facilities and infrastructure that need to not only be efficient, but resilient.”

  • Conference tracks include:
  • Systems and Equipment;
  • Fundamentals and Applications;
  • Standards, Guidelines, and Codes;
  • Earth, Wind & Fire;
  • Tall Buildings;
  • Modeling Throughout the Building Life Cycle; and
