CMD Group's updated database of more than 20,000 architecture firms is a valuable industry resource for information on professional practices.

The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute is accepting bids for two new projects as part of its HVAC & R Research for the 21st Century program. The Arlington, Va.-based organization has also initiated a certification program for direct geoexchange heat pumps.

The Latin American market for packaged air conditioning unit, at $793 million in the year 2000, is expected to jump to more than $1 billion by the year 2004, according to a study conducted by BSRIA, a building services research group based in the United Kingdom. In another study, the group predicts that the market for central-plant air-conditioning equipment will grow from $172 million in 2000 to $227 million by 2004.

Project web sites are currently being utilized by less than half of U.S. design firms, but this number is growing, according to a recent study by Zweig, White & Associates, Natick, Mass.
