Abstract for Presentation

Facilities today are having to provide a balancing act, when going beyond code, to provide a built environment that is high in Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) while using the least amount of energy as possible and reducing its carbon footprint. Some of these items go naturally hand-in-hand while some are at complete odds with each other. This session talks about achieving that balance, based on owner’s project requirements, through design, construction, commissioning, and operation of the facilities. Systems and equipment need to be properly sized and controlled so that the facility staff can achieve the IEQ, energy, and carbon goals.
