Nominations are open for the AIRAH Awards 2015.
The annual AIRAH awards aim to acknowledge the HVAC&R industry’s outstanding achievements and are open to individuals, companies, corporate bodies, institutions and government bodies. This year’s Awards acknowledge recognise the work carried out during 2014.
AIRAH have stated in a media release that they have reviewed the award categories this year, resulting in an addition of a new category–Product of the Year.
