Retro-Commissioning: The Process and Optimization Implementation Case Studies

Optimization of the building systems through the Retro Commissioning Process starts well before the Cx Provider interrogates the BAS system and doesn’t end when the report is issued. This webinar will start by working through the steps of the Retro-Cx and energy audit process to lay the foundation for scope of work. We will discuss the process on finding, and more importantly, implementing energy savings measures with buy-in from the Owner and Operators. This will also include working through the creation of an energy roadmap for your building or campus to plan your savings. Then project examples of actual Facility Improvement Measures (FIMs) will be presented detailing out the issue, resolution, projected savings, and actual savings where available. These will focus on items that would be found typically in the aviation facilities. Download Handout
