Like death and taxes, when it comes to buildings, change is the only certainty: systems age, tenants come and go, and new technologies create opportunities and risks. The typical result of this change is decline. But you can do more than accept the inevitable. You can embrace and benefit from change through re-commissioning.

This course is targeted at building managers and operators, preparing them to get the most out of re-commissioning their buildings. It uses case studies and interactive workshops to communicate a firm understanding of the re-commissioning process, providing practical knowledge that prepares you for your first (or next) commissioning cycle.

You will learn how to: define your scope; incorporate LEED credit requirements; select the right service provider; evaluate the quality of service provided and avoid common pitfalls.

4 GBCI CE credits
