ASHRAE 2014 in New York City

The 2014 Winter Conference of the American Society for Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is from Saturday, January 18 to Wednesday, January 22 in New York City.

Not surprisingly in a city of almost 600 skyscrapers the conference focuses on tall buildings. Sessions are held at the New York Hilton hotel, 1335 Avenue of the Americas.

The conference technical program has eight tracks.

• Tall Buildings: Performance Meets Policy. Sessions will look at opportunities in the design, development and operation of tall and super-tall buildings. Others present the measured and measurable use of utilities, envelope (infiltration and exfiltration), building pressure, waste handling, elevators, carbon and adaptive reuse.

• Building Information Systems. Sessions will investigate how building control technologies are integrated for operational efficiency.

• Hydronic System Design.

• Building Performance and Commissioning.

• International Design. Sessions will address innovative design strategies to meet environmental elements, geography and cultures.

• Environmental Health through Indoor Environmental Quality.

• Systems and Equipment.

• Fundamentals and Applications.
