The President's Message

May 2017

Brandon Bradley

Thank you to those that attended our April meeting. We had a full room that was treated to an overview of the rebate programs offered by Eversource and what the process is to apply for funds. May will be our last meeting for the ’16 – ’17 season and we are going out with a bang. Not literally but we are going to focus on acoustics. The tech session will handle fundamentals and the dinner session will take a deep dive on Building System Acoustics.

May is Past President’s night and as such I would like to cordially invite any and all Past Presidents of the chapter to attend the evening and receive complimentary admission as a small token of gratitude for your unwavering service to the chapter. As I have followed in the shoes of giants who have preceded me, I fondly look back and I take pride in the pathway laid before me. I also look forward to the years upcoming and I am extremely proud and confident in the volunteers who have stepped up for the upcoming season. Thank you to those who have volunteered and those who continue in service to the chapter.

The CT ASHRAE Golf Outing will be held on May 26th 2017. It will be at Tower Ridge in Simsbury again this year. We have had great success with this location and the team there is excited to host us again. Sponsorships are currently available and will fill up fast. Registration is now open.

Also, the date for our annual YEA vs TOY Softball Game has been set. Please mark your calendars for Thursday, June 8, 2017. Additional information and registration can be found online.

ICC partnership with ASHRAE, AIA, USGBC and IES Means Higher Performing Buildings will be Easier to Achieve!

ATLANTA – A unified green building code that could become the foundation for LEED certification was created in 2011, thanks to a partnership among ASHRAE, the International Code Council (ICC), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

That effort got a boost in August 2014, when ICC and ASHRAE agreed to align the technical requirements of ASHRAE's Standard 189.1 for High PerformanceGreen Buildings (189.1) with ICC's International Green Construction Code (IgCC) into one single model code.

With that agreement, and with the subsequent definition of each organization's roles, the ASHRAE Standard 189.1 committee continued revising the standard so it could provide technical content for the IgCC, with the ICC responsible for the administrative sections and publication.

This integrated document, coined the "IgCC powered by 189.1," will become the 2018 version of the IgCC (2018-IgCC), due to be published in summer 2018.

"The 2018-IgCC will provide the design and construction industry with the single, most effective way to deliver sustainable, resilient, high-performance buildings," said International Code Council Board President M. Dwayne Garriss, Georgia State Fire Marshal. "The 'IgCC-powered-by-189.1' joint initiative framed the essential sustainable construction building blocks on which future resilient initiatives can develop and expand. We appreciate the dedication and efforts of our partners, ICC Members and all who contributed to the development of the IgCC powered by 189.1."

By collaborating on developing the 2018-IgCC, these organizations envision a new era of building design and construction that includes environmental health and safety as code minimums. The goal of the 2018-IgCC is to provide fundamental criteria for energy efficiency, resource conservation, water safety, land use, site development, indoor environmental quality and building performance that can be adopted broadly.

With that foundation, local jurisdictions can build upon regulatory requirements by leveraging complementary leadership strategies that support and encourage the evolution of the building community. Initial steps in achieving these outcomes include publishing the 2018-IgCC, streamlining compliance for aligned strategies in LEED certification, and promoting the use and implementation of these tools.

The Integration of ASHRAE Standard 189.1 & IgCC

As a standing project committee, the ASHRAE 189.1 committee has updated the technical aspects of Standard 189.1-2014 using ASHRAE's continuous maintenance procedures. To publish the updated version of the standard in 2017, the committee has deadlines for the many revisions being proposed so they can be included in the 2018-IgCC publication.

ASHRAE's ANSI-approved process for these proposed changes to the standard will be wrapping up this summer, with final addenda undergoing public review now. Later this year, the final set of changes for the 2017 version of Standard 189.1 will be delivered to ICC. At that time, ICC will develop the administrative procedures for the technical content and codify the document into the 2018-IgCC.

In anticipation of this timeline, ICC did not retain the IgCC committee in 2015. Members of the ICC Sustainability, Energy & High Performance Building Code Action Committee (SEHPCAC) have, however, contributed to the 189.1 process, providing recommendations and proposals within the 189.1 process that seek to carry over provisions from the 2015 IgCC into 189.1.

These proposals, and those from other stakeholders, have resulted in several dozen changes to the 2017 version of Standard 189.1, and in these efforts, the integration of these two documents has begun to take shape. The further integration of green building strategies will continue since Standard 189.1 is on continuous maintenance, meaning the revision process is ongoing, but those further revisions will not affect the 2018-IgCC content.

USGBC Alignment with Green Codes and LEED

Since the initial announcement of the "IgCC powered by 189.1" in 2015, the USGBC has made progress on recognizing the important role of green building codes for voluntary rating systems and LEED certification.

In the summer of 2015, Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) announced a package of measures required by California's statewide Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen) that can now be streamlined when a project seeks LEED certification. More streamlining is anticipated in California and, importantly, this breakthrough in aligning code requirements with LEED pioneered an approach that the USGBC can leverage for aligning with forthcoming versions of the IgCC.

Once the technical content of the 2018-IgCC are known (following the handoff from ASHRAE to ICC later this year), the USGBC will undertake an analysis of the measures from the model green code and compare them to LEED requirements. This process will begin while the 2018-IgCC is being codified. The USGBC and GBCI anticipate being able to communicate further progress on alignment at Greenbuild this year.

Promoting the IgCC in 2018

While the publication of the 2018-IgCC in a little over a year will be a milestone achievement, it is only the beginning. In forming the historic agreement among ASHRAE, ICC, AIA, IES and USGBC, these organizations envision a new era of design and construction where green codes become widespread.

To help realize the vision, a concerted effort will begin to actively promote the 2018 model green code with the goal of gaining wide-scale adoption. The details of this promotion are being formed now, but efforts will begin in early 2018.

Additional details of this co-promotion will be announced later this year.

A Word from the Editor

 A Note from the Editor


Hi everyone!

It's wild to think this is the second to last newsletter for the 2016-2017 year! We've had some terrific programming, great volunteering, and unfortunately, had to say goodbye to some of our members. It is with a heavy heart that I alert you of the passing of Guy DeFeo. Although Guy left us in February, we did not find out until recently. This month we pay tribute to him and his past presidency by making him the May member spotlight. I hope reading Rich Melo's interview with him will bring a smile to all your faces.

Thank you,

~Nichole Petersen

Member Spotlight

Passing of Lifetime Member and Past President Gaetano 'Guy' DeFeo

It is with deep sadness that say goodbye to one of the most influencial members to our chapter, Guy DeFeo. We apologize for the late notice, however, we wanted to recognize his chapter involvment, achievments and wonderful spirit through this interview contucted back in October 2015 between chapter Historian, Rich Melo and Guy.


Historian's Report October 2015: Gaetano DeFeo, Past President, Southern CT Chapter of ASHRAE 1960


Gaetano DeFeo (Guy DeFeo, as we all know him) was born in Italy on December 9, 1921 and came to America in 1930 at the age of 9. His family settled in Mount Vernon, N.Y. where he graduated from Davis High School in June,1939. Not being able to attend college after graduation, he enrolled in night school taking a beginners course in “Refrigeration” while working for a Carrier Distributor as helper to become a service mechanic. After completing the refrigeration course he enrolled in a correspondence course in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration consisting of (1) Basics of the Refrigeration Cycle (2) Design of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems and (3) Servicing Compressors and other component parts. On completion along with acquired experience as a helper, he became qualified as a full mechanic and continued to work for the Carrier Distributor from 1939 to 1943.

When World War 2 started, some of his work included servicing refrigeration systems at Westover Air Force Base in Springfield, MA. which was considered vital and provided temporary deferment. However, in January,1943 he was drafted in the Army and because of his rating as a refrigeration mechanic, he was assigned to the Quarter-Master Corps for basic training. After basic training, he transferred to the Army Air Force where he attended the College Training Program and was in San Antonio, Texas when a Presidential Order came through returning all volunteers who had transferred back to the Ground Forces. He was then assigned to a Refrigeration Company and sent to France where his unit served with U.S. 8th Army in Southern France and into Germany. He was discharged in March 1946 with the rank of Master Sergeant. After the war he enrolled at Manhattan College under the G.I. Bill, but transferred to Columbia College after two years because Manhattan did not have a Mechanical Engineering Program.


In 1950, Guy graduated from Columbia University with a B.S.M.E., where the President of the Columbia personally handed him his diploma and shook his hand. Although this is a common experience shared by all college graduates, the President of Columbia at the time was none other than Dwight D. Eisenhower (President of Columbia 1948-1953, President of the United States of America 1953-1961). Following his graduation, Guy DeFeo was hired by the Carrier Corporation as a Service Supervisor. He went through the Engineering Training Program in Syracuse, New York and subsequently was assigned to the Boston office as Field Service Supervisor covering the New England Area. This assignment lasted from 1950-1953. Carrier was planning on moving Guy to their Texas office, but Guy did not want to uproot his family across the country. Instead he moved on to a new position, serving as a sales engineer and service manager with the Lutz Engineering Co. in Rhode Island, and the George Ellis Co.,the Carrierdistributor for Connecticut.


In 1960, Guy was serving as President for the ASRE (American Society of Refrigerating Engineers) organization, while fellow colleague Stanley Bronski was serving as President for the ASHVE (American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers) organization. This is when the societies merged and created the ASHRAE organization, where Guy and Stanley split terms, with Guy serving as the first President of ASHRAE in 1960 and Stanley serving as President in 1961. This is why Guy and Stanley are the only past-presidents who have a single year on their past-president’s pins.


In 1961, after serving as a sub-agent for Bill Donovan, Guy and his wife, Aida, established the Guy DeFeo Company, Inc., manufacturers' representatives for Baltimore Aircoil Company, Kramer Trenton Company, and Precision Heat Exchanger Company. His company served a large territory encompassing Connecticut, Vermont, and the four western counties of Massachusetts. Later, three of his five sons, Carmine, John and Michael, also joined the Company and the boys have taken over after his retirement in 1992.


Guy was responsible for numerous interesting designs in the air conditioning and industrial refrigeration field. Utilizing the Kramer Trenton Company "Thermobank" automatic hot-gas defrost system, he designed refrigeration systems for fast freezing bread dough at Leons' Bakery, Country Home Bakery, and Lender's Bagels, the fast freezing of stuffed clams at Matlaws' Co., and packaged sausages at Perri's.  The "Thermobank" systems were also used for designing refrigeration systems to maintain critical temperature control in the various meat-processing rooms and freezers at Mosey's Corned Beef, as well as many other meat distribution warehouses in his territory. Early projects included both ammonia and Freon field erected chiller systems for ice rinks, and other various process applications. The above qualified him for a P.E. license.


Working closely with consulting engineers and mechanical contractors, The Guy DeFeo Company was successful in promoting the full line of cooling towers, industrial coolers and evaporative condensers manufactured by Baltimore Aircoil Company. Installations throughout his territory include: Universities, Hospitals, Office Buildings, Industrial Plants, Apartment Buildings, Schools, Stores, and some Residential Homes. The Guy DeFeo Company also negotiated the sales of “Ceramic” cooling towers (a new acquisition by BAC) at Foxwoods Casino, Yale University, IBM, and ITT Hartford Insurance Group.


Guy's contribution to ASHRAE include serving as Refrigeration Vice Chairman for the Eastern Region 1 from 1989 to 1992. Up to 1987 the field of refrigeration had been "orphaned" from the time that ASHRAE was formed in1959-60.  During his term, the refrigeration "grass-roots" committee was very instrumental in re-instating the importance of refrigeration in the Air Conditioning Industry.


At the December 1995 Connecticut ASHRAE meeting, Guy was a major participant in the panel discussion on Connecticut chapter history. In addition to a sense of history, Guy provided information on a "true" application of a Thermal Ice Storage System for all in attendance at the meeting.


Guy remains active in his retirement and provides consulting services to the Guy DeFeo Company. Guy and his wife Aida are currently both 94 years young and retired. They are the proud parents of 7 children (5 boys and 2 girls), as well as grandparents to 21, and great grandparents to 18. Currently, their eldest son Carmine DeFeo (ASHRAE President 1989-1990) is the President of the Guy DeFeo Company. Twin sons Michael and John DeFeo serve as Vice Presidents of the company. Guy DeFeo Jr. is a doctor as well as assistant dean, while Raymond DeFeo works at a Nursery. Daughters include Aida Keirnan and Linda Tuscano (1950-2016).
