Rethinking Operations and Maintenance for High-Performance Buildings
On Demand Training
Learn about engagement programs for key stakeholders -- including building owners, operators, and occupants -- in the design, construction, and operation of sustainable facilities. Find out about a cyclical process that involves stewardship, performance, and enabling tools and metrics that result in refinements and continual improvement.
Discover best practices and techniques to:
- Begin with proven planning methods that lead to quantifiable results
- Incorporate whole-building thinking in all phases of design, operations, and maintenance
- Identify, select, and procure the lowest impact materials, equipment, and systems
- Engage occupants and users in the adoption of sustainable behaviors and procedures
- Measure, monitor, and verify whole-building performance to meet your reporting requirements

Learn how to utilize life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) to improve Federal economic-based decision making, determine the total cost of ownership of project alternatives, and make informed decisions on energy and water efficiency investments. In addition, participants will apply key requirements and supplemental economic measures to federal investment decisions such as those for individual and interdependent building system acquisitions for new construction and major renovations. A video tutorial will demonstrate how the latest version of the Building Life Cycle Costing (BLCC) software can turn readily available inputs into sound investment decisions.
This course covers the best known methods for reducing the energy-intensity of data centers by utilizing server-virtualization, optimizing the temperature within the data center, selecting energy-efficient cooling options, how to arrange server racks and aisles and many other efficiency opportunities. It emphasizes the need for server administrators to work with, rather than independent of facility operators.
