Identification & Evaluation of Energy,Maintenance, and Operational Savings Opportunities Presented LEED AP


As operations and maintenance professionals, many of us know of inefficiencies in our building or facility. Given the new techniques for energy efficiency and environmentally friendly building systems, there are better and more efficient ways to design and operate chillers, pumps, AHUs, and AC fans, to name a few. To solve the problem and improve the efficiency in your building, Gary Shamshoian, PE, LEED AP, will walk us through several case studies and some techniques for financial analysis that can be used to create a “business case” to convince upper management of the savings and return on investment. He will present the formulas to help you make a case to improve the efficiency of your building, and he will present real examples of opportuni-

Technology Tools for the Built Environment By Raffy Espiritu FMP, President, AFE Silicon Valley

Raffy Espiritu, AFE Silicon Valley Chapter President, is also President and CEO of the Impec Group in Santa Clara, 408-3309350, respiritu@

During the past several months, I have interacted with many stakeholders in the built environment and one thing that is emerging so clearly is the value that owners and their designated representatives assign to the need for effective technology tools to support the way a facility is managed.

Failure to do so can spell disaster for building owners as they are exposing themselves to a higher level of risk, which can result in significant loss of their precious assets. It is against this increasing demand for accountability in facility management, that software manufacturers are racing to develop various tools that can support the owners and their representatives to collect pertinent data that includes, among others: asset management, preventative maintenance, space planning, energy management, work order management, and more.

Reinhard Hanselka, PE, REA of CRB Consulting Engineers Reinhard.Hanselka@

See the video of Reinhard’s Code Presentation to the AFE This month we have a few good code questions. Remember If you have a question on the videos/AFE/hanselka/ only a few questions are published, but I respond to all ques- code, send it to: hanselka.htm

tions sent to

Question #1: Our business is semiconductor related and we have a substantial inventory of equipment/tools. We were recently told that the local Fire Department wants to have a detailed review of all of our tools whenever we make changes. This could slow us down. Is this correct? Your local jurisdiction is correct. For any tool or device that uses or stores hazardous materials, it is the responsibility of the Fire Department per the requirements of the Hazardous Materials Chapter of the California Fire Code, Chapter 27 (2010) or Chapter 50 (2013). If the tool does not utilize hazardous materials, there is no authority for the local Fire Department to permit or even review the tool. A chemical inventory must be submitted with each permitted tool. I strongly recommend that you schedule a meeting with your local Fire Marshal to clearly define the review and inspection criteria, including review time lines. Question #2: We are currently designing a life science facility that will use large quantities of flammable and combustible materials. Our consultant told us that it is essential that we keep all of our delivery and handling pressures below 15 PSIG, because that is all that the city will approve.Why is this?

Graduate Certificate Program in Facilities Maintenance & Operations You may recall reading about a new graduate certificate program in the planning stages at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in this newsletter in January 2012. After years of planning, Bob Dills, past president of AFE Silicon Valley and of IFMA Silicon Valley and Barbara Jackson, PhD, DBIA, Professor, Construction Management at Cal Poly State University are proud to announce that the certificate program has been scheduled for the coming fall term.

Raffy Espiritu, AFE-SV Chapter President said, “This is welcome news! We at AFE need to promote this program to our membership and to our colleagues at IFMA and BOMA.

According to an email written by Dr. Jackson, “the first Facilities Management & Operations (FMO) graduate certificate course is scheduled and the registration process is open on the Cal Poly Extended education website.  All six courses are scheduled to be delivered this next academic year – one in fall, two in winter, two in spring, and the final one in summer 2014 to complete the first enrollment and delivery cycle.  If demand is present we will deliver the first course again in winter or spring to launch a second cohort.  FINALLY - it is happening!”

Bob Dills explained that the courses have been scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays to allow working adults to participate. Although the first session

“The new FMO graduate certificate will complete design disciplines within Cal Poly’s Construction Management department. It includes technical subjects such as HVAC, Roofing, Site Development, Controls, Environmental and Energy, Project Management and Financial Analysis,” said Bob Dills.

beginning in September will be on-campus in San Luis Obispo, future sessions will be a hybrid of online and on-campus and eventually online. Bob also explained that professionals who have earned Bachelors degrees, once accepted into the program, will receive a graduate certificate upon successful completion of the program. However, professionals who do not have degrees are also welcome to enroll in individual courses. They will receive university credit upon successful completion of each course. “The benefit for all is that this program will fill in the gaps in their experience,” said Bob. For example it covers finance for facility professionals, a topic that some facilities professionals may not have mastered. For those without a degree, successful completion of this course will add another level of credibility to their resume. For additional information visit the Cal Poly website at: http://www.catalog.

Grow Block Party a Big Success On July 24, more than 115 facility professionals came out to support GROW’s first fundraiser, held at Goodwill Silicon Valley. The new 501C3 group is dedicated to meeting the challenge of supporting a new generation of facility engineers, building managers, operations personnel, HVAC contractors, electrical engineers, janitorial staff and others who make up the facilities profession. Although cost and revenue numbers are not complete, GROW co-founder Bob Dills said he considered the event a big success. Bob said, “the strongest thing that struck Julie O’Loughlin,

Caasi Bonura, Scott Schipper and me, is how easy the associations like IFMA and AFE make things look. And they do it multiple times a month. Personally it amazes me how many fine details are involved in pulling off an event like the Block Party. There is no way in the world it could have happen anywhere close to the way it did without all of our dedicated volunteers.

The team from Western Allied Mechanical include Jeremy Goodland, Zach Russi with Caasi Bonura and Bob Dills, cofounder of GROW.

The event was hosted by Goodwill of Silicon Valley. Michael Fox and Robert Shuck volunteered their parking lot, which was a great venue that accommodated a live band, three food trucks, games, photo booth and prize raffles. (See below.) Continued on page 8

GROW’s First Project

During the launch party the first major GROW initiative was announced. Bob Kraiss, who recently retired as Senior Director of Corporate Real Estate and Facilities for Adaptec, announced that GROW is the sponsoring organization aimed at creating a children’s performing arts theater in East Palo Alto.  The plan is to use an existing stage in the gym at the Costano School and use the resources of IFMA-SV and AFE to install material donated by Google. The groups will add audio, video, lighting, screens, and pipe and drape.  The 49ers Academy (the 6th, 7th and 8th grades at the school) will be responsible for organizing and running performances and for-profit events in the new theater.  All the children of East Palo Alto will be able to participate in the performances.  A master plan is currently being created to fund and arrange for labor, materials and engineering requirements.  The project has a target completion date of spring 2014.

This was the first special event produced by GROW, but GROW co-founders Bob Dills and Julie O’Loughlin expect to produce two per year, an outdoor event like this one in the summertime and an awards ceremony in the fall or winter. Bob thanked all of the sponsors and the Silicon Valley chapters of AFE, IFMA and BOMA for “such wonderful support.” He stressed that, “the important thing was to launch GROW and improve the visibility of the cause to encourage young people to choose facility management as a career.”

Message from President (continued from page 2) While very sophisticated tools have been in place for very large global corporations, the applications for small and medium size companies are very expensive and much too complicated. This brings to the fore the need to develop more flexible and robust applications that are suitable to the needs of the majority of facilities that require technology support for effective facility and property management. The main areas of interest are in the field of Building Management Systems (BMS) where MEP systems are documented and tracked and CMMS (Computer Maintenance Maintenance System) where asset management, work order management, preventative maintenance and related needs are set in place. The Silicon Valley chapter of the AFE will address this important area of concern in facilities in future education programs so that our members will be provided with the latest developments that are emerging.
