  1. We Are Not Alone. . .

  2. A well-oiled machine? • Provides • Shelter • Comfort • Productivity • Cleanliness • Profit • Safety Each of these services cannot be provided in isolation

  3. Systemic Isolation for Losing Opportunities

  4. Holistic Applications for Life-Cycle Optimization

  5. Attributes for High Performance

  6. HVAC is a key component to many of these. . .But not the only one!

  7. The “head down, do your work” mentality won’t get us there You are part of the team

  8. HVAC is not in isolation . . .

  9. Communication is Essential • Recommendations from The Institute’s Consultative Council • Training must be continual. Best practices go stale, equipment and processes change, and new regulatory requirements are enacted. • To assure such education and training is sought and retained, their delivery must be dynamic and engaging. • Changes in communication channels are needed because: • Buildings are becoming more automated • Technologies and management processes used to operate, maintain and minimize energy consumption require increasing levels of integration

  10. Federal Building Personnel Training Act • General Services Administration to: • Identify core competencies • Identify courses, certifications, licenses, degrees to demonstrate competencies • Develop a facilities management curriculum • Includes Contractors! • Impacts on the entire industry: • A comprehensive collection of skills required for various building professionals • Will certainly find its way into private sector requirements

  11. Technicians = Translators On-site O&M Owner Design Team Occupants

  12. You are training the trainers of • Building Owners • O&M Teams • Occupants • Design Teams

  13. Best Careers 2011: Heating, Air-Conditioning, and Refrigeration Technician • Employment of heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration technicians is expected to increase by 86,600 jobs, or 28 percent, between 2008 and 2018 • The air-conditioning and commercial refrigeration industry estimates that an additional 57,000 skilled workers are needed each year

  14. What is the Need? • By 2014, 29% more HVAC&R technicians will be needed (AHRI 2011) • By 2014, 21% more plumbing technicians will be needed (AHRI 2011)

  15. Train on their terms

  16. Train on their terms

  17. Train on their terms

  18. What do building owners care about? Not Products or Technologies!

  19. What do building owners care about? The HVAC&R Industry Impacts them All!

  20. Homeowners Have Similar Needs • Affordable to live in and maintain • Comfortable and homey

  21. HVAC is one of the largest energy users Energy = $$

  22. Why do we care? • Climate change/Carbon prices • Rising energy costs • Marketing/Image • International, National, State and Local Policies

  23. An opportunity to engage customers in identifying potential energy savings

  24. Restaurant Sanitation Ratings Buildings are finally entering the information age Car Fuel Economy Estimates Nutrition Facts Label The Age of Measurement and Verification

  25. The Age of Measurement and Verification • Results! Results! Results! • Desire (and ability) to detect problem areas • Reputations depend on results • Commissioning • Building Energy Labeling • Green Building Ratings • Flexibility, forensics, and foresight • Working in a collaborative environment • Integrated design • Design-Build{-Operate-Manage} • Building Information Modeling (BIM)

  26. Just One Aspect of the High-Performance Picture Aesthetics Manufacturing Productive Utilities Sustainable Resilient Cost Effective Finance CFO Secure Building Supplies Workforce Materials Safe Historic Preservation Accessible Transportation

  27. Part of an infrastructure system . . .

  28. About the Institute Mission To serve the nation and the public interest by supporting advances in building sciences and technology to improve the built environment. Congress directed the Institute to: • Develop, promulgate, and maintain building-related performance criteria • Evaluate and pre-qualify existing and new building technology • Conduct related investigations • Assemble, store, and disseminate building- and construction-related technical data and other information

  29. Councils, Committees & Projects • Advanced Materials Council • Building Enclosure Council • Building Enclosure Technology & Environment Council • Building Seismic Safety Council • buildingSMART alliance • Consultative Council • Facility Maintenance & Operations Committee • HAZUS • High Performance Building Council • Multihazard Mitigation Council • National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities • National Mechanical Insulation Committee • ProjNetSM • Whole Building Design Guide

  30. Ultimately, We Are Not Alone . . .
