Topic: Building Automation System Master Planning - Take Control of Your Facility’s Future

Presented by:  Distinguished Lecturer Jim Vallort

 

This presentation will explore ways a Building Automation System Master Plan can prepare for future technological advancements and enable today’s facility managers to harness the power of their building systems, to better utilize energy and to increase energy efficiency, reduce utility costs and improve occupant comfort.

 

Many building owners and operators currently face issues associated with their existing building control systems. These issues can include, but are not limited to: Outdated or obsolete technology, limitations of older generations of automation systems, multiple disparate control systems functioning in the same facility and concerns related to expansion or renovation plans

 

These issues lead to underutilization of the control system, robbing the users of the opportunity to maximize their investment in their automation technology.  I will discuss how to improve the efficiency of building systems with the ultimate goal of reducing utility and energy costs.
