Improve your technical know-how and join your fellow green building professionals at these courses:

Optimizing building control systems

October 24 in Appleton, Wisconsin
October 25 in Brookfield, Wisconsin
8:30 a.m.–4 p.m. | $199

On-location course hosted by We Energies and WPS, in partnership with Seventhwave.

Discuss how you can get the most out of your building control system now and prepare for what’s next. Opportunities and challenges of various building automation systems will be explored, as well as how to navigate the murky waters between whole-building and equipment-level control systems. We’ll explain the importance of continuous commissioning, introduce resources to test data accuracy and review our predictions of what lies ahead. Learn more and register.

ASHE's Health Facility Commissioning® Program

October 26 in La Crosse, Wisconsin
November 1 in Madison, Wisconsin
8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. | $225

On-location course hosted by Alliant Energy and Xcel Energy, in partnership with Seventhwave.

Better understand why and how commissioning and retrocommissioning make good business sense for health care facilities. We’ll show you how to develop a business plan that speaks to executive leadership—highlighting the value and demonstrating the return on investment of commissioning. A model for change management and successful implementation will be shared with a focus on rapid and simple payback associated with retrocommissioning.

Large and small project investment case studies will demonstrate how both scenarios can pay off. Collaboration among healthcare organization representatives, design team, constructors and the commissioning agent will be emphasized, and we’ll show you how commissioning can be scaled to various project scopes after executive confidence is built.
