The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the nation’s largest organization of indoor environment and energy services contracting businesses, has announced the launch of a new Building Performance Council (BPC) within ACCA to provide specific services to this vital segment of the industry. The BPC will be guided by an Advisory Committee comprised of the nation’s leaders in this vital industry segment, including Adam Gloss, Vice President of BelRed Energy Solutions. “I’m thrilled and honored to have been asked to assist is this effort”, said Gloss. “I look forward to helping to move this industry forward.”
The first chairman of the BPC Advisory Council will be Ellis Guiles of TAG Mechanical Systems, Inc. in Syracuse, NY. Guiles is a leader in the building performance market segment and has chaired or served on many of the committees that are responsible for developing and reviewing the ACCA quality standards. “As a contractor-led organization, the BPC will have direct input from contractors who perform this type of work on a daily basis,” said Guiles. “This unique view will help make the market segment more professional and help show measurable value to customers.”

“The BPC is the second council ACCA has started to serve the diverse market segments in our industry,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president & CEO. “We believe the BPC will grow and have a major influence on the building performance market, because ACCA has been laying the groundwork for many years through its development of standards and quality assurance programs.”
