Nick Casale was born in Troy and raised in Cohoes, New York.  He studied at Hudson Valley Community College where he received his Associate in Engineering Sciences.  He went on to Clarkson University and received his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.  After college Nick went to work for EYP Architecture & Engineering in January of 2006 where he did projects for Historical Preservation, K-12, Higher Education and Government buildings until December of 2010.  In January of 2011 he went into Mission Critical Facilities for EYP doing Mechanical Engineering for Data Center Facilities.  In March of 2013 Nick started with kW mce and has been doing mechanical Engineering for Data Center Facilities where he found the people to be top notch, interesting and great to work with.

Nick got introduced to HVAC at an early age because his father owns and operates a small HVAC/Plumbing contracting company.  He worked weekends and summers doing residential and commercial work for him.  Nick enjoys the fact that, no matter how much time he spends doing this work there will never be a moment during his career where he feels like he knows everything.  He learns something new every day and finds it comforting knowing that the HVAC field is so constantly evolving that he will never have to feel stagnate in his career.

Nick started with ASHRAE in 2006 and felt that this was an organization that could help him grow professionally.  He has held positions in the Northeast Chapter as Attendance/Reception, secretary, treasurer, vice president, president elect and president.  As for future involvement, Nick will serve on the BOG next year and will possibly be involved with future ASHRAE positions as time allows.  He would like to be remembered as a president who helped to develop and keep the chapter moving in the right direction.

Nick is married and has two children which keep in very busy.  If he had spare time he would brew some beers and do remodeling and refurbishing projects.  He likes hiking, the outdoors and being sociable.

We wish the best of luck to Nick on his journey forward.
