CIBSE signs with ASHRAE
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has signed a refreshed Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) with ASHRAE to further develop their working relationship and to reinforce benefits for their members and wider society.
The SPA will create a roadmap to advance and promote the mutual interests of CIBSE and ASHRAE, with a practical commitment to work together on activities that serve their respective memberships and the wider public and promote a more sustainable world.
Amongst other areas, joint initiatives will aim at accelerating the progression of digital technologies, and virtual design and construction to improve the resilience of buildings and health of occupants in an increasingly challenging climate.
CIBSE President Stuart MacPherson said: “We are delighted to sign this agreement with ASHRAE and strengthen the long-standing relationship between our organisations. The increasing local and global challenges of maintaining safe, healthy and efficient built environments marks this as a particularly auspicious time to share knowledge and expertise to enhance our offerings for the benefit of both our members and wider society.”
