The baselines, requirements and expectations for minimum energy conservation and increased efficiency within new construction and renovation/addition critical laboratory projects are always increasing, and design teams and engineers are constantly being challenged to surpass these efficiency expectations, often at the expense of those who need to maintain and operate them. Ultimately it is the collective design, installation, maintenance and operation of the mechanical system that determines its true "efficiency," and a failure in any of these factors will result in long-term inefficiency.
1. Assess the importance of setting energy conservation baselines, requirements and expectations at the beginning of a project
2. Determine the importance of communication with the owner at various personnel levels, and what ultimately makes a project successful
3. Identify what an integrated design approach is, and the owner's role in this process
4. Discuss the importance of proper owner training at the completion of the project
