When it comes to modernizing commercial buildings, there are many factors to consider. Energy efficiency, decarbonization, risk reduction, operator productivity and returning to work are just a few of the key topics that are dominating the industry.

However, lurking behind the scenes are challenges such as aging building automation technology, competing priorities, lack of funds and a shortage of skilled labor. Helping building clients to optimize systems can yield significant benefits, and you can expect to help clients realize both financial savings and HVAC energy savings.

Learn to help clients with modernization and upgrades to reflect current building growth and innovation. Understand how to develop sustainable automation and optimization plans and ensure that your clients’ buildings remain efficient and seamlessly connected.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify current commercial building stock — system types, equipment and controls deployed over the past 50 years.
  • Learn about retrofit/upgrade opportunities that can help customers reach their energy efficiency and decarbonization goals.
  • Understand what opportunities can support facility managers and sustain operation throughout a facilities’ life cycle.
