BACnet: The Best Choice for Designing and Specifying Building Automation Systems Successfully

Room Number: St. Thomas A
Presenter(s): Grant Wichenko, President
Appin Associates

Facility Managers, Owners and Specifiers need a simple bulletproof solution for specifying BACnet-based BASs and equipment that will apply to simple as well as high performance Green buildings. BACnet is the protocol of choice for this task. The presentation will outline how to design and specify BACnet-based BASs from the initial concept, then through the design and LEED Charrette process, the construction phase, the commissioning process and finally the operational phase. The presentation will touch on specifying BACnet in the SmartGrid environment. Mr. Wichenko will also offer tips and tricks when specifying Energy Dashboards normally used by Senior Management.

Learning Objective:

1. Outline the benefits of a BACnet-based design model to facility owners and managers

2. List the characteristics of well-designed BACnet interfaces for boilers, chillers, meters, etc by equipment suppliers

3. Specify on-board BACnet controls from equipment suppliers in a simple and understandable manner

4. Identify clear lines of responsibility for installation, wiring, programming, graphics and commissioning BACnet interfaces on mechanical, electrical and other equipment to avoid change orders

5. Discover how the BACnet-based networked controls design model assists with compliance to LEED and SmartGrid interoperability
