ASHRAE, BOMA Sign MOU

Leaders of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers and the Building Owners and Managers Association International announced Feb. 11 the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, vowing to work together to identify shared operation services and collaborate on product development in the interest of fostering superior building performance.

Recognizing their shared technical interests, the groups said goals under the MOU would include jointly promoting education programs to members, giving presentations at each other's conferences, and generally encouraging a continuing dialogue between ASHRAE and BOMA at national, regional, and local levels on issues of importance to engineers and building professionals. The organizations said they were henceforth committed to supporting each other and fully participating in standard development areas, initially centering around ASHRAE standards 62.1, 90.1, 180P, and 189.1P working within the ANSI consensus standards development process.

"We are pleased to collaborate with ASHRAE and work toward our shared goal of promoting superior building performance," said BOMA Chairman and CEO Brenna S. Walraven, RPA, CPM. "ASHRAE and BOMA are on the forefront of developing standards that significantly impact building owners and managers, and we look forward to working more closely with them on these matters."

Atlanta-based ASHRAE, founded in 1894, has about 50,000 members worldwide. Washington, D.C.-based BOMA, founded in 1907, has more than 17,000 members in North America and abroad.

"BOMA and ASHRAE share many of the same objectives, and we are excited to strengthen our relationship," said ASHRAE President Kent Peterson, P.E. "We are all working toward optimal performance of both new and existing buildings, and this partnership will be beneficial for both ASHRAE and BOMA members."
