By Jodi Scott - Ashrae. ATLANTA – Four sessions focused on design build are being offered for free at the AHR Expo as part of the ASHRAE 2016 Winter Conference.
The Conference takes place Jan. 23-27, Orlando Hilton, while the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo takes place Jan. 25-27, next door at the Orange County Convention Center. To register for the ASHRAE Conference, which includes free access to the Expo, visitwww.ashrae.org/orlando. Information about the Expo can be found at www.ahrexpo.com.
The Technical Program features eight tracks, some 100 sessions and more than 300 speakers. It runs Sunday, Jan. 24 through Wednesday, Jan. 27, and offers over 200 Professional Development Hours, as well as Continuing Education Units, which can be applied toward a Professional Engineering license in many states, including the state of Florida.
Four sessions are being offered at no cost at the AHR Expo. The three seminars and one workshop are all part of the Design Build track.
“ASHRAE is always looking for opportunities to improve the Technical Program, and at the same time, to include the theme of the Society president,” Jennifer Leach, Conference chair, said. “ASHRAE President David Underwood spent much of his career as a design-build contractor and suggested the Design Build track. Offering these programs at the Expo is a win-win given its close proximity to ASHRAE Conference at the hotel next door. ASHRAE gets an opportunity to reach out to its contractor members and engineers now have another reason to attend the Expo.”
The sessions are:
