GHT Limited (GHT), a DC metro area mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) consulting engineering firm, announces that principal Ray Smith has been elected to the Examination Committee of the Building Commissioning Certification Board (BCCB).

The BCCB was formed in 2004 as an administratively independent arm of the Building Commissioning Association (BCA) for the purpose of recognizing building commissioning professionals who meet the standards of the BCA. Its mission is to provide commissioning professionals with the premier industry-recognized commissioning certification program that accurately validates their professional skill level, is accepted as the standard within the industry, and is recognized within the building community and governmental agencies.
