1:30 pm BACnet to the Rescue: Interoperability Saves a Troubled LEED Project
Description: The Banner Bank building in Boise ID was one of the world’s first LEED Platinum facilities. The 11 story building was designed to showcase green building design concepts, but there was one problem. The controls system didn’t live up to the design. Plagued by contract and installation problems, the original controls contractor walked off the job. Fortunately the installed controls were BACnet so a different contractor was able to take over the project, integrate the controls using a front end made by a different vendor, and make the building perform the way it was designed.
Speaker: Steve Tom, PE, PhD, Director of Technical Information, Automated Logic Corp.

3:30 pm Energy Standards and Energy Efficiency with BACnet
Description: As the demand for more energy-efficient buildings has grown, the number of ways for achieving more energy-efficient buildings, and saving money, using their building automation systems have also grown. Many successful strategies have been incorporated into ASHRAE and LEED standards and guidelines. This session will look at the various strategies presented in these standards and guidelines, and how they have been successful in the real world.
Speaker: Bill Swan, LEED AP, Buildings Standards Initiatives Leader, Alerton
