For Women's History Month, we recorded this show on March 11th, during National Women In Construction Week. Our guest was veteran mechanical engineer Ginger Scoggins, P.E., LEED AP, CEM, CxA, FASHRAE, a principal at Engineered Designs Inc., in Cary, NC, and an upcoming president of ASHRAE (2023-2024).
Scoggins had plenty to talk about from a variety of different perspectives, and we packed in as much as we could. A practicing mechanical engineer who started her own small business in 1997 to provide for her growing family, she was chosen last year to represent ASHRAE at the United Nations' COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.
And that heady international assignment came even as Scoggins was chairing ASHRAE's key Building Headquarters Ad Hoc Committee, which oversaw the net zero renovation project that created the society's new showcase headquarters building outside of Atlanta.
Here, Scoggins also reflects on her experiences as a woman engineer over the past 30 years and discusses her responsibility now as a likely role model for young female engineers from other nations around the world.<
