Lehigh Valley Chapter of ASHRAE
ASHRAE is an international organization of 50,000 persons with chapters
throughout the world. The Society is organized for the sole purpose of
advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation,
air-conditioning and refrigeration for the public's benefit through
research, standards writing, continuing education and publications.
Through its membership, ASHRAE writes standards that set uniform
methods of testing and rating equipment and establish accepted
practices for the HVAC&R industry worldwide, such as the design of
energy efficient buildings.
The Society's research program, currently more than 100 research
projects worth nearly $8 million, investigates numerous issues, such as
identifying new refrigerants that are environmentally safe. ASHRAE
organizes broad-based technical programs for presentation at it's
semi-annual meetings and co-sponsors the international
Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Exposition, the largest
HVAC&R trade show in North America.
The Lehigh Valley Chapter covers an area of Pennsylvania from roughly
Reading to the west, Quakertown to the south, Phillipsburg, NJ, to the
east, and the Poconos to the North.

Beyond PDF's: The Past, Present and Future of
Presented By: Josh Progar of
'Big data' in construction has evolved more in the last 30 years than in the prior millennium as
a result of advancements in technology. Through all this innovation, PDFs have remained the
legal and adopted industry standard for conveying digitized construction documentation - but
will they remain that way?
We will analyze the impact of big data on the AEC industry, how BIM and the field workflows
converge, and how designers can leverage technology on the job site to connect with contractors,
increase their own workflow efficiencies, and streamline communications through
the entire project lifecycle.
Join us on October 25th as we examine AEC technology trends as big data analytics influences
the trajectory of project information in the construction industry.
