The Big Apple to host 2008 ASHRAE Winter Meeting

ASHRAE’s 2008 Winter Meeting will take place Jan. 19-23, 2008, in New York City.



ASHRAE’s 2008 Winter Meeting will take place Jan. 19-23, 2008, in New York City. The co-located Building Information Modeling (BIM) seminar will take place 8 to 9:30 a.m. Jan. 20 at the New York Hilton. ASHRAE’s technical committee on integrated building design will sponsor the session. The seminar will provide practical information from HVAC&R design professionals on how to begin the process of implementing BIM into a design or construction practice.
ASHRAE recently established a Building Information Modeling and Interoperability Steering Committee designed to develop and identify initiatives and opportunities presented by interoperability and BIM. The committee also will develop common terminology and technologies to ensure data exchange across operating platforms and software systems.
The ASHRAE seminar speakers and topics are Automating Code Compliance Checking with BIM, David Conover, International Code Council, Washington D.C.; The Promise and Reality of BIM, Christopher Wilkins, PE, Hallam-ICS, Burlington, Vt.; and Building Information Modeling and ASHRAE’s Steering Committee on BIM and Interoperability, Gordon Holness, PE, Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.
