Enterprise Sustainability Seminar June 19, 2013

Energy is one of the top three expenses that commercial businesses face. Building owners need trained facilities management professionals that have the knowledge, skills and ability to listen to their buildings and take appropriate actions. Learn how to make an impact on energy use and cycle time through sustainable management of facility operations, thereby reducing the high costs associated with building systems.

Attendees of this informative seminar will:

  • Develop an awareness of the roles and responsibilities of a facility manager.
  • Prepare a baseline analysis of utility bills for the purpose of future comparison & measuring improvement.
  • Understand potential challenges with building systems, including ongoing monitoring and fault detection.
  • Develop and apply measurement and verification analytics.
  • Learn what “systems optimization” is and how to tell when it is achieved.
  • Understand the role that information technology plays in effective facilities management and how to utilize an effective software developed by Talisen Technology, a St. Louis-based company.
  • Meet Robert Rives, Manager of Facilities Management for Kansas City, MO and hear about the actions KC took to reduce their energy and costs.
