ASHRAE Falcon Chapter

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today. ASHRAE was formed as the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers by the merger in 1959 of American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHAE) founded in 1894 and The American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE) founded in 1904.
In 2012, as part of a rebranding, ASHRAE began doing business as “ASHRAE” vs. using its full legal name of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers. Use of ASHRAE reflects the Society’s worldwide membership and that services will continue evolving globally.
The ASHRAE Falcon Chapter (AFC) with more than 500 members (Engineers, Architects, Researchers, Academicians, Technicians and Students) is one of the most active chapters in ASHRAE Region-at-Large and is committed to the achievement of technical quality and excellence in all our programs, courses and other activities. The chapter was inaugurated on December 7th, 2003. It covers UAE & Oman regions.
