CIET – Recommissioning for Existing Buildings

Recommissioning for Existing Buildings

This course has been postponed until further notice.

Recommissioning (RCx) improves buildings by creating energy savings and making buildings more comfortable for their occupants. It has been well documented that the practise of Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) will reduce operating costs while improving the quality of the indoor environment.

BOMA in partnership with CIET, will host this one-day workshop that will provide participants with a practical approach to EBCx, with a specific focus on the elements of a robust investigation. Space is limited, so register early.

 The workshop leader is a seasoned EBCx professional and will provide examples, from a variety of commercial and institutional building types. A strong focus will be placed upon operational efficiency of HVAC systems.

Who should attend?
This workshop will be beneficial for building owners, managers, and technical supervisors.

Registration: $150 Plus GST (deadline to register is May 15th)

The workshop, scheduled for Wednesday May 20, begins at 8:30 and ends a 4:00 with a one-hour lunch break
