ASHRAE Standard 189.1 was developed as a collaborative effort with representatives from ASHRAE, USGBC and IES. It was written in code language and contains the minimum acceptable criteria for high-performance green buildings. The criteria covers six broad categories: Site Sustainability, Water Use Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, Building’s Impact on the Atmosphere, Materials, and Resources, and Construction and Plans for Operation. Each category contains a statement of scope, compliance paths, mandatory provisions, prescriptive option and a performance option. This overview will help you understand the new requirements, how they impact your business, and highlight what technical expertise, skills and knowledge will be needed to apply this standard.

2010 Chapter's Regional Conference
On August 12th to 14th, the Delaware Chapter hosted the Region III CRC. The conference kicked off with technical sessions on Thursday.
The business of the region began Thursday evening with the Caucus. Todd Postlethwait was the delegate from Central PA, and Mark Graybill served as the alternate. The purpose of the Caucus is to nominate members for regional and society positions and awards. Unfortunately, it is a closed meeting and details cannot be shared.
The business of the region continued on Friday with an open business meeting. During this meeting, each chapter in the region reports their overall status and each chapter has the opportunity to make motions that get forwarded to members’ council. Several motions were passed to improve the process for applying for Technology Awards.
Friday evening, the Wilmington Blue Rock's Stadium was the site of the welcome reception. Those who attended enjoyed a buffet, stadium food, and socialization.
of Saturday was the awards luncheon. Each year, chapters report points
to the Presidential Award Of Excellence system. Based on this system
and other metrics, the region and society awards the chapters. Central
PA received several awards: Star (met par for each of the five
categories in PAOE), Honor Roll (for obtaining minimum points in four
of five categories for four consecutive years), Full Circle (each
chapter officer contributed to ASHRAE Research at the Honor Roll
