ACG is offering a discount to building owners, architects, and owner's reps on its Total Building Commissioning conference.
ACG's Total Building Commissioning conference, held April 25 to 27 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, spotlights a number of commissioning and energy-management approaches that will help owners save on energy costs while improving building operation.
In anticipation of the event, ACG is offering a special discount to building owners, architects, and owner's reps who have not yet registered.
To take advantage of this special discounted registration fee of $300, 40% off the original registration price, fill out the registration form and return it to ACG headquarters.

- Envelope Commissioning and Existing Building Envelope Diagnostics will discuss how critical it is to understand envelope commissioning and diagnostics for existing buildings
- Energy Modeling Applications for Existing Buildings will explain how energy modeling can be used throughout the life of a building, particularly for continuous improvement of existing buildings.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
