Environmental technology nonprofit relocating to Peachtree Corners

ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), which develops standards and guidelines for indoor-environment-control technology will relocate its world headquarters to Peachtree Corners next year. The company will move over 120 employees into the renovated space.

ASHRAE has purchased a 3-story building at 180 Technology Parkway in Technology Park Atlanta and will begin renovations to convert the 66,700 square-foot space into a high-performance facility. The nonprofit business will spend $15.7 million to retrofit the 1970s-era building to operate at a higher sustainability level – anticipating net-zero operation to reduce energy consumption.

The facility will become a showcase for the latest HVAC&R equipment and technology.

“We believe that renovating existing buildings represents the single best opportunity for making a significant impact on sustainability, resiliency and energy efficiency,” said ASHRAE President Sheila J. Hayter.
