Gersil N. Kay commented on “ASHRAE 90.1—2007 and beyond”

 

“Standards 90.1, 189, LEED and other energy conservation groups, are not considering that lighting, of all the disciplines, is the easiest with which to save energy. In the zeal to conserve, sometimes productivity is not equally increased. People will always find ways to circumvent unwanted or impractical energy restrictions.”

 

Peter Hetzel commented on “Earning LEED 2009 Water Efficiency credits”

 

“v3 is a definite improvement in reducing water consumption—but it is going to require time to educate owners on the still numerous options, benefits, and challenges. Every drop is sacred and v3 water efficiency will get more of us thinking that way every time we flush a urinal or not. Thanks for the article.”

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
