US President of Building Services Engineers visits Ireland

On Monday evening in Clyde Road, Engineers Ireland hosted visiting ASHRAE President Ron Jarnagin and his wife Linda from Richland, Washington State, USA. He had earlier delivered a lecture on his profession at DIT. He will travel onto Edinburgh, London, Paris and Brussels to meet fellow professional bodies before returning home next week.

ASHRAE is the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers. Ron is a Mechanical Engineering Graduate working in the North West National Laboratory. He was accompanied by Derek Mowlds Chairman of the Irish Branch Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).

As fellow professionals speaking to Ron we found that we had much in common with our US colleagues with respect to Sustainability and Energy Efficiency in Buildings. Indeed arising from the visit there are opportunities of increased cooperation locally between Engineers Ireland and CIBSE.
