FEMP First Thursday Seminar

FEMP First Thursday Seminars provide training for Federal energy and environmental professionals. Leading experts address timely topics in 90-minute sessions, offered live via satellite or through streaming video at your desktop.

Register now to learn about ways to implement performance-based contracts that achieve high-performance buildings with low energy profiles. Learn about upfront contract provisions that lead to measurable performance benchmarks in building construction and operations.

Discover techniques that result in:

  • Innovation by design teams and contractors to incorporate energy efficiency as part of the design/construction process
  • Minimal additional cost to achieve significant energy savings (in the range of 50% reduction)
  • Owners who are focused on project management, rather than solving design/construction problems
  • Strong communications between owners, design teams, and contractors
  • Best practices, examples, and lessons learned from real experiences in implementing this process.

FEMP CEUs awarded upon successful completion of a multiple choice assessment.
