Webinar: Combined Heat and Power for the Manufacturing Industry

Manufacturing facilities are increasingly concerned with power resilience for continuity of operations during outages that can occur with storm events or other causes. The drive to improve efficiency and reduce cost is ever-present. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offers both power resilience for confident emergency preparedness and energy efficiency essential for reducing energy costs. The Department of Energy’s Upper West CHP Technical Assistance Partnership (CHP TAP), will be leading a webinar on the opportunities and applications of CHP at manufacturing plants.

Tuesday, July 23rd, 10 am – 11 am CDT

Integrating BIM and FM: Status, Case Study and Opportunities

BIM has already had a significant impact on the A/E/C industries. The use of BIM related to the operational aspect of buildings, however, is still in its infancy. This webinar consists of three components: the first discusses major issues associated with BIM and FM; the second is a case study presentation of a successful design-construction-FM collaboration; and the third a Q+A session between presenters and attendees.

Issues with BIM and FM:

  • Traditional approach to BIM information turnover to FM by the contractor
  • Recent enhancements of traditional approach using COBie to transfer data from BIM to FM systems
  • What does FM really need for improved building performance, and why traditional BIM models and COBie generally do not meet FM needs
  • How can this information be identified and generated during the design and construction process
  • How can this information be integrated with systems used by FM to manage building performance and use
  • How can this information be kept current and accurate over the life of a building

Case Study of a Successful Design-Construction-FM Collaboration:

  • Description of UCSF Medical Center and the role of design and construction collaboration
  • How BIM-FM was integrated on the UCSF Medical Center; What was done, how was it specified in contract, what tools and people were used
  • Examples of how improved BIM-FM integration and use of visualization software to support better building performance and sustainability
  • BIM/FM usage for existing buildings?

Presenters: Paul Teicholz and Bruce Mace. Learn more here!

Minimizing the Risk of Cyber Attacks: An IWMS Panel Discussion

The wireless interaction between building devices on the Internet has never been easier to achieve. Such interaction of networked components yields essential FM data, but it also provides cyber criminals with the ability to attack an organization’s enterprise network. Such cyberattacks are occurring with increased frequency – it is no longer a question of if your facility’s control systems will undergo a cyberattack, but when. This webinar will consist of a panel of two major IWMS vendors discussing how they address a number of cyber security issues related to market segmentation, technology, integration, resilience, vendor responsibilities and focus, and future trends. Following an introduction by the panel moderator on the current state of cybercrime/security best practices, the panelists will discuss their company’s status, approach to the issues above, followed by questions from the attendees

Panelists:

Eric Teicholz, IFMA Fellow, President, Graphic Systems, Inc.

John McGee, IFMA Fellow, President, Archibus

Erik Jaspers, Product Strategy & Innovation Officer, Planon

Turning Facilities into High-Performing Assets (and How to Pay for It)

Ever have an idea for an improvement project at your facilities, but it gets derailed if the owner can’t fund the investment? Maybe the HVAC system needs replacement, or the water fixtures are leaking and inefficient. The roofs are aging and need replacement or resealing. Tenants are changing over and it’s time to spruce up the space, replacing windows and insulation, even switching to LED lights. These measures come at a cost, but not if you are savvy in how you finance them.
