CIBSE and ASHRAE extend collaboration

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has signed a refreshed Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) with ASHRAE to further develop their working relationship and to reinforce benefits for members and the society at large.

CIBSE president Stuart MacPherson

The SPA will create a roadmap to advance and promote the mutual interests of CIBSE and ASHRAE, with a practical commitment to work together on activities that serve their respective memberships and the wider public and promote a more sustainable world.

Amongst other areas, joint initiatives will aim at accelerating the progression of digital technologies, and virtual design and construction to improve the resilience of buildings and health of occupants in an increasingly challenging climate.

The newly signed SPA has already created a working group between the two organisations, to enhance collaboration and communication, and to drive forward initiatives, both technological and sociological. This is set to include examining measures to mitigate against pandemic threats; delivering fair universal access to safe and healthy built environments; and improving equality, diversity and opportunity in the building services industry.

In practical terms the agreement strengthens the relationship between and global reach of the two organisations, improving the quality of services and output in the home markets, while reducing costs and overlap. More widely, the organisations can improve offerings through a coordinated approach.

Signing the agreement, CIBSE president Stuart MacPherson said: 'We are delighted to sign this agreement with ASHRAE and strengthen the long-standing relationship between our organisations. The increasing local and global challenges of maintaining safe, healthy and efficient built environments marks this as a particularly auspicious time to share knowledge and expertise to enhance our offerings for the benefit of both our members and wider society.'

ASHRAE president, Charles E Gulledge III, P.E. said: 'Our continued collaboration with CIBSE provides a meaningful opportunity to coordinate efforts on innovative technologies and resources to advance the growth of the built environment. We value this partnership with CIBSE and are excited to leverage this collaboration to move the industry and buildings towards a more sustainable future.'
