ASHRAE Presents Awards At 2016 Winter Conference
February 11, 2016

From January 23-27, 2016, ASHRAE held its 2016 Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida, in conjunction with the AHR Expo. Despite the East Coast blizzard that prevented some from attending, the technical program featured eight tracks, some 100 sessions, and more than 300 speakers.

During the conference, Thomas E. Watson, Director of the Daikin Learning Institution for AHRI member company Daikin Applied, received the F. Paul Anderson Award, ASHRAE’s highest award for technical achievement. Calvin D. MacCracken, who founded CALMAC, was inducted into the ASHRAE Hall of Fame, an honor for deceased members of the society who have made milestone contributions. MacCracken had more than 200 inventions, earned 80 patents, and was known for his pioneering work in off-peak cooling energy cost savings and energy conservation options in ice rinks.

The following representatives were named ASHRAE Fellows, a membership grade that recognizes those who have attained distinction and made substantial contributions in HVACR: Patrick C. Marks, P.E., Engineering Manager, Johnson Controls; John A. Murphy, Applications Engineer, Trane; Mick Schwedler, P.E., Applications Engineering Manager, Trane; and William D. Gerstler, Ph.D., Senior Mechanical Engineer, General Electric-Global Research.

The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) also received the ASHRAE Platinum Circle Investor Award, which is presented to contributors that have provided significant financial leadership to ASHRAE at the $20,000 level or higher.
