NEBB president Jean-Paul Leblanc presented the donation to James Vallort, ASHRAE vice president, during the plenary session of the NEBB conference. “We are pleased to continue a tradition that has now raised,” said Leblanc.

For 16 years, NEBB has been a member of the ASHRAE Golden Circle, which is a group of contributors who provide significant financial leadership to ASHRAE at the $10,000 and higher level. These investors contribute more than 10 per cent of the total amount of funds collected for the society’s research initiatives.

“ASHRAE’s current research strategy centers on sustainability and maximizing resources while minimizing the impact on the environment. This goal is very consistent with NEBB’s mission and the work performed by our certified firms and professionals,” remarked Leblanc.

NEBB is an international association of certified firms, professionals and technicians that perform building enclosure testing, building systems commissioning, building systems retro-commissioning, fume hood testing, sound and vibration measurement, cleanroom certification and testing, and adjusting and balancing of environmental systems. It is a source of industry information through its standards, procedures, publications, specifications, textbooks, study courses and newsletters.
