Step 5 of 5: Optimizing Facility Performance

Facility managers, CEOs, and CFOs all face headwinds in managing their facility investments. Whether it be because of technological complexity or just a lack of time and funding, building owners struggle to operate their facilities at optimal levels. This means they are losing money they could be saving and energy they could be conserving. Below is Step Five of a five-step series on optimizing your facility performance and maximizing your return on investment. These optimization metrics include:

  • Energy Savings
  • Utility Incentives
  • Operation and Maintenance Savings
  • Increased Occupant Comfort, Health, and Productivity
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions

Step 5: Maximizing Building Controls

Why are building controls important? Because the ability to optimize a building’s performance is directly tied to the ability to control the operation of the building’s systems and equipment.

How? Establish a strategy and plan to:

  • Limit the number of different systems installed across your portfolio. The typical target is no more than two systems.
  • Upgrade existing controls to programmable direct digital controls.
  • Establish the best practices for: procurement, point naming, points/meters, integration, control sequences, user interface, security, maintenance, service and training.
