Why is HVAC&R important?
Buildings account for more than 35 per cent of total energy consumption. In most of those structures, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems consume more than 30 per cent of the total energy use.

What do you do, and what is the most satisfying aspect of your work?
I’m a commissioning manager. The most satisfying aspect is seeing systems within a project move from a static state to a fully operational integrated environment.

What will you be doing to celebrate World Refrigeration Day?
It will be a time for reflecting on how far we have travelled over the last 150-plus years … probably over a beer.
