Presented by April Guymon, PE, MBCx Director at ETC Group. Recorded live at the 2019 NFMT Conf. in Orlando

ABSTRACT

Building performance drift is a common challenge facing facility management, where finely tuned and commissioned building HVAC systems lose performance over time. The negative impacts of performance drift lead to wasted energy and millions of dollars in annual energy costs. For one building, the costs can be high, while for enterprises managing multiple buildings, the costs can be devastating.

Evolving analytic technologies now allow an organization to centralize large amounts of building data and develop enterprise-wide strategies to manage key performance indicators (KPIs), including comfort, cost, and compliance, as well as fending off performance drift. Successful Energy Management and Monitoring-based Commissioning (MBCx) tools such as BuildingFit™, SkySpark® and ClimaCheck® and  are examples of these technologies.

To be successful with MBCx, the technological tools are only part of the story. It is also critical to consider how to structure the facilities management teams for more streamlined communications and a culture of curiosity and teamwork. Without the right organization and support of the boots on the ground, the analytics become another software to ignore.

Managing Facilities Through the Pandemic: Energy Saving Tips for Facility Operations 

*Earn Learning Credits: CEUs (AIA LU)

ABSTRACT

The Covid-19 Pandemic hit unexpectedly. People had little time to prepare their organizations or facilities for the changes we’re experiencing today. This webinar will discuss several practical ideas for saving energy in un-occupied or near empty buildings during this time of uncertainty. These energy-saving ideas and strategies are focused on facility operations during the Pandemic.

In addition to discussing how to successfully manage unoccupied buildings to minimize energy costs, we will also discuss the golden opportunity created by this unexpected shutdown.  Facility teams can find and capture specific energy saving opportunities that will improve building performance and lower energy costs long after the pandemic has ended.
