Engineer Hassan Youness from DC Pro Engineering has become only the second engineer in the UAE, and the third in the Middle East, to receive High-Performance Building Design Professional (HBDP) certification from ASHRAE of the US.

“This is a significant achievement for DC Pro Engineering, and an acknowledgement of our pre-eminent status in the region as the leading green building consultancy,” says DC Pro marketing manager Alia Agha. “In addition to Youness, we have 11 LEED-certified engineers, two energy-certified managers and two PMPs.”

Commenting on the significance of the HBDP certification, DC Pro Engineering CEO George Berbari explained that the programme, “identifies individuals who have demonstrated they have the necessary training and tools for the design of high-performance buildings that live up to their performance capability.”

ASHRAE president Lynn Bellenger said, “ASHRAE certification benefits building owners, employers and individuals. Firms who employ ASHRAE-certified engineers are better able to promote their services. Certified individuals approach their design responsibilities with greater confidence.

“ASHRAE certification helps professionals demonstrate they have mastered a certain body of knowledge, and can provide outstanding service in their area of expertise," said Bellenger.
