ASHRAE headquarters shows off its retrofitness

The ribbon is cut, the donors have been honored, and ASHRAE’s newly renovated sustainability showcase is officially open for business.

Some 200 people gathered Thursday, October 23, for the Headquarter dedication ceremony in Atlanta. The guests included industry partners who donated nearly $1.65 million in equipment and services for the $7.65 million renovation.

“None of this would have been possible without the hard work and commitment from many volunteers and staff involved in the renewal for the last three years,” Bill Harrison, ASHRAE president, said. “More importantly, generous donations by companies and firms have ensured that not only our building will be here for a long time to come but that ASHRAE can continue to provide the sustainable building technology guidance that we are known for.”

“Not only is the renovation a technology and productivity showcase, it also exemplifies the incredible potential of determined ASHRAE members and the greater ASHRAE community working toward a common goal,” Jeff Littleton, ASHRAE executive vice president said. “This renovation represents the largest capital investment in ASHRAE history at $7.65 million.”

Major contributors to the Headquarters project include the ASHRAE Foundation, Carrier Corp., Automated Logic Corp. /Automated Logic Georgia, ClimateMaster Inc., Daikin Industries Ltd., Southern Company/Georgia Power Company, and Trane. Partners also include Aircuity Inc. and Interface FLOR. Also donating are Allsteel® /Ivan Allen; Mark H. Brandli/design principal for Richard Wittschiebe Hand; CxGBS; Dynamic Air Quality Solutions; EBTRON Inc.; GE Power; Bill and Margaret Harrison; Bruce Hunn, ASHRAE's director of strategic technical programs; ITT/Bell & Gossett/James M. Pleasants Co.; NorthWrite Inc.; PolyCon Manufacturing; Thermal Gas Systems Inc.; U.S. Green Building Council; and VFA Inc.
