ASHRAE and the National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) have entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) intended to advance and promote the mutual interests of professionals engaged in the design, construction, performance verification, and operation of buildings.

NEBB is the international certification association for firms that perform testing, adjusting and balancing of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems in addition to building systems commissioning, sound and vibration measurement, retro-commissioning, fume hood testing and cleanroom performance certification. The recent MoU was signed by current ASHRAE president Darryl K. Boyce and 2018-2019 NEBB president Jim Whorton on October 19, 2019 during the NEBB Fall board meeting in New Orleans.

Through a joint committee selected to uphold the MoU agreement, NEBB and ASHRAE will continue to enhance their working relationship. By committing to the ongoing advancement of collaborative projects, keeping one another informed of major initiatives, and discussing new opportunities for collaboration, both organizations will be better suited to promote adoption and widespread use of codes and standards in order to serve engineers and facilities professionals.

In addition, the MoU formalizes the commitment of ASHRAE and NEBB to work together to advance research into the sustainable design, construction, and operation of healthcare facilities.

“The MoU between NEBB and ASHRAE reinforces the power of collaboration and provides both organizations a greater opportunity to leverage our resources as we offer innovation and emerging technologies to the building services industry,” said Boyce. “I look forward to continuing our partnership as we bring our unique strengths together to advance the built environment through sustainable practices.”
