Top Facility Challenges and How to Address Them Utilizing a Documented EBCx Process
About this session:
We will review the existing building commissioning (EBCx) process - focusing on the planning and investigation phases - by looking at how to accomplish these tasks and what assistance you may need with minimal costs. The process will support a proactive approach in identifying issues while prioritizing for potential capital investments required for future budgeting. The process will help resolve climate control, equipment failures and building automation issues allowing for more time to address other concerns while having a more educated, operational staff. Examples of facilities using the process and how it has resolved issues will be given, plus we will discuss highlights from my research.
1. Review the top challenges of managing facilities taken from research & interviews with facility, property managers and IFMA members
2. Learn the tasks completed in the planning & investigation phases of the EBCx process
3. Understand examples of several different types of facilities using this process, resulting in better operating HVAC, equipment and control systems
4. Learn how to obtain a commissioning provider to perform these services, what resources are needed and what to expect including cost implications
