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 Building a Strong Environmental, Health & Safety Program at Your Facility Mark Roman, President; Envision Environmental, Inc. This presentation will help informed facility managers understand the building blocks needed to develop strong regulatory, cultural and long-lasting EH&S programs at their facilities. find and fix overlooked environmental risks before they result in costly liabilities at their sites. Facility managers will learn how to strengthen existing EH&S programs to better protect their company, their workers and their community from potential EH&S issues.
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, large-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.
10:15am - 11:15am
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 Humidity Happens, Mold Doesn't Have To Nikki Krueger, Industry Manager; Ultra-Aire Participants will examine scenarios whereby HVAC equipment fails to satisfy latent (moisture) removal requirementsnecessitating the need for supplemental dehumidification. Real world case studies will be examined and discussion will include the dangers of elevated humidity to property and people. Participants will learn methods to identify and resolve dangerous conditions to prevent the growth of mold.
Room C Photoluminescent Products for Safety, Sustainability, and Savings Richard J. 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.
11:30am - 12:30pm
Room A Developing an Effective Maintenance Training Program Thomas (Tom) Davis, Mechanical Engineer; Maintenance Troubleshooting International Attendees Learn how to use both free and paid sources to develop and implement a successful maintenance training program that makes sense and stimulates employee participation.

Understanding these principals will also help building owners, contractors and engineers make informed decisions when mold is discovered.
12:45pm - 1:45pm
Room A Pre-Insulated Pipe 101 - Heat Loss/Gain Protection of Industrial Piping Systems Denis Laframboise, PE; Regional Sales Manager, GF-URECON LTD Pre-insulated pipe may be installed for both freeze prevention in cold climates; centrally chilled water piping systems in temperate and tropical climates; and hot water / low pressure steam piping for industrial process and district energy. Pre-insulated pipe of all types is used to reduce heat loss (or heat gain) on both buried and above ground applications - with or without integrated heat tracing. Attendees at this session will learn about engineered solutions for common applications including urban heating, shallow bury or above ground piping, HVAC & industrial process and chemical feed lines in water treatment plans. Attendees will also learn how to choose the proper insulation materials, evaluate the heat loss of a pipe, and select the heat tracing cable and control in order to obtain an efficient freeze prevention system for any industrial and infrastructure piping systems.
Room B Moving Forward on Sustainability Goals: The Role of Facilities Professionals Kenneth Hellberg,Building Performance Specialist; Pennsylvania College of Technology - National Sustainable Structures Center (PennState) Organizations are adopting newer and more aggressive sustainability goals in their operations, and few are more important in reaching those goals than those who work in facilities.
