Are you occupants sleep-deprived?
Buildings
What color is your lighting? The answer may not be black and white. Most lamps have some tint, whether it's the light blue of LEDs or the warm yellow of incandescents. The color goes unseen by most people, including your occupants — but it could be affecting their alertness. Eyes register subtle color shifts even when your occupants don't consciously notice them. Research indicates that when the eyes are exposed to blue light, the production of melatonin — a sleep-inducing hormone — is suppressed.

How building commissioning relates to total cost of ownership
By David E. Patnaude
As facilities professionals, we are often asked to work on projects and tasks that go beyond the day-to-day operation of our facilities. The types of projects and tasks I'm talking about include capital planning, construction project management and long-term master and capital planning. Often times we enter this process with precise institutional knowledge, along with our intuition regarding particular items or projects. Once we have identified these priorities, we need to be able to present the proposal to senior management in a way that allows them to quickly understand, analyze and decide upon the proper course of action.
