Commissioning for high performance buildings at MABFM 2013.
The Mid-Atlantic Buildings and Facilities Management show has case studies that show commissioning's potential for energy and financial savings.
Both Dan Green and I are looking forward to the opportunity to present “Commissioning for High Performance Buildings” at the Mid-Atlantic Buildings & Facilities Management (MABFM) show tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. Our presentation will look at how commissioning is required to verify high performance design leads to high performance buildings. Case studies will reveal commissioning’s potential for energy and financial savings while also introducing the commissioning process.
Our Facility Optimization Solutions team has delivered commissioning services and retrocommissioning services for all different types of buildings and clients ranging from Massachusetts General Hospital, the State University of New York at Buffalo, Kaleida Health, Boston College, Bershire Medical Center and the Niagara Health System among others.
$1 invested in commissioning results in $4 operations savings over the first five years of occupancy.”
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
