An Emcor executive will be among those speaking about combating Legionnaires’ disease at a conference Thursday in San Diego.

Alan Spence, P.E., director emeritus of Emcor Government Services, will present a session on the issue at 9:15 a.m. Pacific during the IFMA World Workplace Conference.

“Emcor Government Services is helping minimize the risk of Legionnaires’ disease in the building environment,” Spence said.  “I have five key objectives for my education session at the IFMA World Workplace Conference on Oct. 7, 2016; namely -- No.1: Generate familiarity with Legionnaires’ Disease and the steps to minimize its risks; No. 2: Create understanding of what is required for the ANSI/ASHRAE (American National Standards Institute/American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ standard 188; No. 3: Foster building owner and operator understanding of these requirements; No. 4. Establish understanding of building survey requirements; and No. 5: Engender understanding of the requirements for building water systems.”

When he was director of the EGS facilities solutions group, Spence supervised mechanical, electrical and structural engineers and computerized maintenance system personnel.
