2. Canadian Building Wins ASHRAE Technology Award
The first commercial building in Quebec designed to meet Canada’s standards for high-performance building through integrated design was awarded ASHRAE’s Award of Engineering Excellence earlier this year. Go to story

3. Penn State Researches IAQ in Government Buildings
Research to improve indoor air quality in government buildings, among other projects, has recently been funded by ASHRAE.
