2017 EDUCATION FORUM SCHEDULE (applications to speak at 2018 CB-FM are now being accepted)
9:00am - 10:00am
Room A Aging Building Infrastructure Ted Ross; President, TRC Engineering and Steven C. Turner, PE; Principal, Structural Engineer, Building Envelope Consulting & Scientists, LLC This presentation on Aging Building Infrastructure will address the mechanical, electrical and structural issues in older buildings and the implication of these issues on budget, planning and property values. The presentation will cover the issue of maintenance, and whether replacement or repair of systems is the best option for management.
Room B Maintenance of Water Source Heat Pumps Kevin Chisholm; Design Engineer, Principal, Mid-Atlantic Energy Consultants Water Source Heat Pumps (WSHPs) have been reliable heating and cooling devices for decades. Today, they are more efficient and reliable than ever and come in a wide range of capacities. There are water to air WSHPs and water to water WSHPs, which can vary considerably in size and manufacturing design.
In this session the presenter will discuss how to maintain WSHPs of less than the 10 ton range. WSHPs of this size are popular in hotels, schools and more and more in residential and commercial office bulidings due do to their high efficiency and quiet operation.
We will also examine how WSHPs can be operated within design schemes that include boilers and cooling towers or geothermal; including how such designs can be hybridized for optimum cost & efficiency.
Room C HVAC, IAQ and Energy Savings Chris Healey; General Manager, Morin Distribution Indoor bio-aerosol contaminants are found in most buildings. The primary source of these contaminants are the HVAC cooling coils. Using UVC energy to eliminate the source of these contaminants results in improved IAQ, elimination of coil clean and energy savings. Savings that can reduce total energy cost by up to 10%
10:15am - 11:15am

11:30am - 12:30pm
Room A Cooling Tower Deficiencies and Solutions Theresa Bodie; Outside Sales, Morin Distribution A one hour educational seminar that will provide insight to Cooling Tower Basics and Operational Deficiencies that building and facility maintenance operators typically experience along with updates on new technological advances and solutions that are currently available to recover performance and increase life expectancy of the equipment.
Room B Photoluminescent Products for Safety, Sustainability, and Savings Richard Martin; President and CEO, AfterGlow, LLC The speaker will provide the audience with an introduction to photo-luminescent (PL), or "glow-in-the-dark", egress marking systems as they pertain to building codes for safety, common applications, and cost saving benefits. PL products are sustainable and can earn LEED credit points for building owners in green building design and construction.
Room C Document Management: Unique Challenges & Benefits for Facility Managers Vivica Williams; President, archSCAN, LLC Facility managers have unique challenges for document management. They have longer retention periods, larger-format documents, and life safety requirements not found in other industries. Learn how to make the transition from paper to digital technology and as a result improved: efficiency, document management, and above all disaster prevention (fire, floods, hurricanes, etc.). We will discuss how to calculate the Return on Investment, new tools for digital documents, and the hidden benefits to digital archiving.
