    Biography

    Frank Mills, C.Eng., Fellow CIBSE, Member ASHRAE, is the president/owner of Frank Mills Consulting, which specializes in design, management, supervision, construction, and operation of building services engineering projects, including education, healthcare/hospitals, research, industrial, process, commercial, retail, computer/data suites, shopping centers (including town centers), and residential (housing, hotels, and apartment buildings). These projects offer low energy features and include several exemplary zero carbon buildings. The schemes also include district energy/trigeneration systems which serve numerous buildings. Mr. Mills has worked closely with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in the United Kingdom and with ASHRAE TC 2.8, Sustainability, as the committee’s international representative, to create new environmental design and rating systems that aid developers and their designers toward low carbon and environmentally friendly projects. He pioneered the new BREEAM Communities environmental rating system for whole-scale phased developments by using Media City, Salford, UK, as a pilot study for the development work behind this new scheme. When chairman of the ASHRAE Region-at-Large, Mr. Mills was actively involved in planning the 2009 Chapter Region Council meeting and conference in Kuwait. There, he also organized a session on low carbon and sustainable cities and presented the Media City, UK case study project. He is also the presenter for ASHRAE Learning Institute courses on natural ventilation and net zero energy buildings.
