Washington D.C. Smart Roof Program: Portfolio-based Roof Asset and Energy Management
Presented by Ty Stranger - Thorsen, Vice President of Bluefin LLC

The way you manage your roofs can have a big impact on your energy consumption and carbon footprint, and position you as a community leader. This presentation demonstrates through a case study in our nation’s Capital how you can turn your roofs from a liability into a sustainable asset. The Washington D.C. Department of General Services is successfully integrating roof asset and energy management to reduce its energy use by 20% across its entire municipal portfolio, including schools, police and fire facilities, and parks and recreation buildings. This municipality includes 435 buildings with over 40 million square feet.

This presentation will demonstrate the Smart Roof Objectives:

1) Conserve Energy: Insulating, air-barrier, and day lighting

2) Reduce Runoff: Collecting, retaining, and re-using rainwater

3) Reflect Heat: Reducing temperatures across the city

4) Collect Solar Energy: Producing electricity and hot water

5) Manage Carbon: Tracking and reducing carbon footprints

6) Lead: Identifying and demonstrating best practices

Get out of Construction Management Hell
Presented by Shelley R. Armato, President and CEO of MySmartPlans

Shelley and our Director of Project Information Management dept., William Steffen, walk you through the way that MySmartPlans is helping facilities managers and owners finish projects under budget and ahead of schedule. Not to mention, we're helping them mitigate risk and protect their projects from litigation. MySmartPlans listened to the pleas of owners and facilities managers and found a solution to the headaches associated with managing and accessing project information. These issues include: Operations and Maintenance manuals, Warranty Information, Records, Drawings, Closeouts, submittals, plan rooms, and much more. MySmartPlans brings total transparency and accountability to the way construction is done. Facilities Management now has a way to productively manage their projects from bid phase to closeout for the next 50 years. We've taken our client testimonials and turned them into relative stories and pain points that any construction audience can learn from. 

How Energy Management as a Service Improves Facility Energy Management Operations
Presented by James Walton, Vice President of Business Development - EnTouch Controls

This seminar will focus on the following:

  • Facility executives are facing increased pressure to better manage electricity consumption and reduce costs.
  • Energy management systems (EMS) can provide dramatic energy cost and usage savings through extensive facility intelligence, but can produce an unmanageable amount of data  (up to 13,000 data points) per day.
  • Energy management as a service (EMaaS) is a new solution that pairs facility executives with a dedicated team of data scientists who evaluate all incoming energy data in real-time and converts the data into actionable decisions and prioritizes energy issues.
  • With EMaaS, facility executives can proactively focus on critical energy management issues, reduce energy usage and costs, reduce maintenance calls and better prepare for capital planning.
