M/E Engineering Group Works with ASHRAE to Further Advocacy, Education

12/13/2006


The Atlanta-based American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Council of American Mechanical and Electrical Engineers (CAMEE).

The agreement formalizes a working relationship between ASHRAE, which is interested in the technical aspects of the building environment, and CAMEE, which is focused on the business aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering.

CAMEE, a coalition within the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), was formed to provide up-to-date information to its M/E/P engineering member firms on new concepts such as green buildings techniques and the new building information modeling (BIM) system—innovations that advance design capability, but also carry potential liability.

“The agreement serves to bridge a gap between ASHRAE and CAMEE and their common interests in government advocacy on behalf of our members and education for the operation of engineering businesses,” said Terry Townsend, P.E., ASHRAE president. “ASHRAE and CAMEE can now market our activities to the mutual benefit of our collective memberships.”

“We look forward to our cooperation with ASHRAE and the benefits that will accrue to both organizations,” said David Raymond, president of ACEC.
