Jon Clarke, M.AIRAH Dexus

Why is HVAC&R important?
Without it, commercial office spaces would be unoccupied. Businesses would not be as productive, which would directly impact on their wealth and support for third-world countries.

There is no better feeling than going into a cool building on a 40° day … apart from a beer, which would be warm without refrigeration.

What do you do, and what is the most satisfying aspect of your work?
I lead technology deployment across the Dexus portfolio. Lighting up a building with data that tells a story is very insightful, particularly when it leads to reducing energy and making our customers comfortable.

What will you be doing to celebrate World Refrigeration Day?
Watching the condensation run down the side of the beer and saying cheers to Lord Kelvin!
