Consulting-Specifying Engineer selected to promote National Conference on Building Commissioning

Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine was selected by Portland Energy Conservation Inc. (PECI) as a media partner to promote the National Conference on Building Commissioning.


Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine, published by Reed Business Information , was selected by Portland Energy Conservation Inc. (PECI), as a media partner to promote the National Conference on Building Commissioning (NCBC), which will be held at the Marriott Newport Beach Resort and Spa in Newport Beach, Calif., April 22- 24, 2008.

The NCBC is an annual networking, training, and exposition event owned and managed by PECI to promote, educate, and empower the field of commissioning for the buildings industry. In its 16th year of production, the NCBC regularly attracts commissioning providers; mechanical, electrical, and fire-protection engineers; building owners, architects, and governmental and non-governmental institutions.

“There is strong growth in commissioning services offered by engineering firms, which can be linked to the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.

Phil Welker, Executive Director of PECI, notes “NCBC is a tremendous training and networking platform for engineers and specialists in the commissioning industry %%MDASSML%% it’s been a trusted resource since the profession became formalized. Interest among owners is growing because of green buildings, utility rebates for energy savings, and greater quality assurance.”
