Energy Efficient Building Operations


At the very least buildings should be comfortable and code compliant. Add to this the need to be water and energy efficient, environmental rating tools, green lease requirements, and mandatory disclosure and there is a lot for a facility manager to be aware of.

With a lifespan of up to 30 years it’s critical to understand the operational energy demands of a commercial building in base and tenanted forms, as well as its impact on the utility supply, in order to establish priorities and appropriate design solutions.

This course will give facility managers insight into how buildings really operate and the knowledge to translate this into energy efficient operations.


Key topics

  • Energy consumption in commercial buildings
  • Energy consumption in HVAC sub-systems
  • Factors impacting energy efficient operations

This course is designed for:
