To-do list for facility management
AutomatedBuildings.com
Facility management is undergoing a significant process of evolution and transformation. The days when the facilities management or engineering group was housed in a small office in the basement next to the elevator mechanical room are long gone. The profile and value of the facilities management team has become more visible and critical as organizational executives grapple with energy, building costs, finances and occupant expectations.

Accurate HVAC comparisons require time and effort
Intelligent Utility
Even to people with no heating, ventilation and air conditioning knowledge, it is obvious that the large air conditioning units in stores, factories and other large single zone HVAC applications consume massive amounts of energy. It's also intuitive that the more efficient each unit is, the lower the energy cost. However — even among HVAC industry engineers — accurately projecting these savings is a complicated endeavor. It can be done but requires a considerable amount of time and effort.

Facility Management Journal

Why buy LED lighting anyway?
By Pamela Tresp
By now everyone has heard of LED lighting, and Kermit the Frog isn't the only one complaining that "it's not easy being green." New technology, especially any kind of electronics, can be expensive and constantly changing, making it difficult to know when to take the plunge. So why are you using or considering LED for your facility? The reason I ask this question is because of some of the choices in LED products I have seen facility managers and building engineers purchase. Keep in mind, I'm not judging.

Will climate change drive a revolution in building design?
Eco-Business

This ranges from the quietness of libraries, to the music in religious buildings and the "buzz" of shops. In light of climate change, perhaps the biggest challenge facing designers today — especially in the developing world — is that buildings are the largest users of energy for heating and cooling, accounting for around some 40 percent of energy consumption.
