ATLANTA (March 23, 2015) – Registration for the 2015 ASHRAE Webcast, “New Tomorrows for Today’s Buildings: Existing Building Commissioning,” is now open at There is no fee for registration.

The webcast, offered by ASHRAE’s Chapter Technology Transfer Committee (CTTC), is broadcast live on April 23, 2015, from 1-4 p.m. EDT. The webcast features industry experts who will define the benefits of existing building commissioning for the environment, occupants, operations staff and overall ownership costs.

“The presenters will distinguish between new building commissioning, existing building commissioning and retro-commissioning,” Nathan Hart, chair of the CTTC Webcast Ad Hoc Committee, said. “Viewers will learn how to manage the commissioning process to minimize the impact on building functions and occupants, and how to integrate elements of existing building commissioning into the operation and maintenance staff’s daily activities. The focus will be on maximizing energy efficiency and return on investment.”

The webcast presenters are:

  • Bob Baker, Fellow ASHRAE, OPMP, managing director, BBJ Consulting, Riverview, Fla.
  • Jim Vallort, Fellow ASHRAE, practice leader, Environmental Systems Design Inc., Chicago, Ill.
