ASHE's Health Facility Commissioning® Program
- SPEAKER BIO(S)
As a result of this course, you will be able to:
- Discuss the essential components of a healthcare facility commissioning business plan to share with executive staff.
- Describe how to develop and achieve long-team energy efficiency goals using the retro-commissioning process.
- Describe how to develop a retro-commissioning plan for both small capital investment and large capital infrastructure, with focus return on investment.
- Explain the purpose of the owner's project requirements document.
- Describe how to prepare a commissioning scope.
- Outline commission authority selection requirements and explain how to evaluate operational objectives and develop monitoring and reporting dashboards.
- Use the ASHE Health Facilities Commissioning Handbook and the ASHE Health Facility Commissioning Guidelines as implementation and management tools.
Who should attend?
Healthcare administrators and executives, facility managers, maintenance professionals, construction managers, building owners, contractors, commissioning authorities, energy program design and implementation professionals; commercial and industrial building energy advocates, architects, engineers, utility representatives; and anyone interested in efficient healthcare facility building operations.
According to Energy Star, every $1 a nonprofit hospital saves on energy is equivalent to $20 in new revenue. Join us to better understand why and how commissioning and retro-commissioning make good business sense for healthcare facilities.
We’ll show you how to develop a business plan that speaks to executive leadership—highlighting the value and demonstrating the return on investment of commissioning. A model for change management and successful implementation will be shared with a focus on rapid and simple payback associated with retro-commissioning. Large and small project investment case studies will demonstrate how both scenarios can pay off. Collaboration among healthcare organization representatives, design team, constructors and the commissioning agent will be emphasized and we’ll show you how commissioning can be scaled to various project scopes after executive confidence is built.
