Integrated Design Group co-sponsored the 7×24 Exchange New England Chapter event, which took place on September 5th, 2012. After a two year hiatus, the New England Chapter was revitalized by Michael Swetz of State Street Bank and Joe Maggio of Integrated Design Group. This event featured a presentation by Roger Schmidt, IBM Fellow and Chairperson of the ASHRAE TC 9.9 committee, and a panel moderated by Kevin Heslin, editor of Mission Critical Magazine. Integrated Design Group’s Dennis Julian was present on the panel to field questions regarding the upcoming ASHRAE class changes and how they create opportunities for the data center industry. Attended by nearly 125 people in the New England area, this event was a success due in part to this trending topic of the ASHRAE class changes.
“The reinvigoration of the 7×24 Exchange New England Chapter germinated from a conversation with Joe Maggio of Integrated Design Group. With Joe’s help, Michael Swetz (State Street Bank) took over as the chapter President and the success of the chapter and its impact on the data center community will be felt for years to come.” Michael Siteman, Executive Vice President, Data Center Solutions, Jones Lang LaSalle
