GGAC Chair

A summary of the important work that we do in the GGAC:

  • Establish and manage relationships between the chapter and government bodies such as ECSA and CESA.
  • Establish CPD recognition of ASHRAE courses via the above bodies.
  • Partner with technical universities for grassroots programmes to develop future engineers in HVAC&R.
  • Make the chapter known to the Council for the Built Environment, as a potential advisor to government on priority matters in the built environment.
  • Pursue public policy priorities:
    • Adoption of commissioning standards for all new buildings.
    • Adoption of ASHRAE codes and standards such as 90.1 & AEDG.
