Owner’s project requirements (OPRs) are too often given insufficient attention – created to match the design, copied from project to project, or forgotten after the design phase. This session will discuss OPRs as important tools at a time of increased scrutiny (through local codes and rating systems) on performance related to resiliency, health, energy and carbon. In this hands-on session, the audience will help develop an OPR as the presenters facilitate and discuss the compromises and implications of the group’s decisions.

CxEnergy is presented by the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG), the Energy Management Association (EMA), and the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC). Together, these Authorities in Building Performance represent over 600 member companies and 2,500 certified professionals in the testing, adjusting, and balancing, commissioning, and energy management industries.
