Fall has Arrived !

The leaves are changing and the weather is cooling off. This means three things to Engineers involved in the design and construction of buildings. 1.) We are busy wrapping up the design of buildings due to break ground before the ground freezes,  2.) We are busy starting the design of buildings to break ground as soon as the ground thaws or 3.) we are responding to temperature complaints.

As busy as we may be, don't forget to register for the October Meeting. Matt has scheduled Jim Coogan of Siemens Building Technologies to  present on Space Pressurization and Reliable System Feedback. These topics hit home as we all continue to develope more complex systems and require accurate and stable results from our controls.

The Cafeteria plan will be available again this year for members. please sign up for the plan when registering for the September or October meetings. The plan is $100 and is a great bargain is you plan to attend 5 or more meetings.

I look forward to seeing you all at the chapter meetings.

Thank you.

Grassroots Government Activities Committee - Madison Benchmarking Ordinance

Soon,  the City of Madison is looking at adopting a benchmarking ordinance.  This ordinance will provide the market – current and prospective building owners, operators, and tenants – with information about building energy performance. It will encourage building owners and tenants to learn about their energy use and work together to lower their costs. Madison is well-positioned to take advantage of the experience of other cities that have implemented similar policies already, and to create a program that works best for Madison’s buildings and environment.  The final copy of the letter the chapter is providing will be posted here shortly.  If you have comments or questions, please contact the GGAC committee chair Manus McDevitt ( or Carol Mori (  There is more information in the newsletter.

You can take general content of this letter to craft your own letter to the City of Madison.
