Presidential Address: Building for People and Performance. Achieving Operational Excellence

Operational performance is an important process in the management of a building. Buildings often fall short on operating to the expectations of the building designers and operators. This is because designers are not always focused on operability during the design process and operators frequently do not possess the proper to skills to adquately operate the technology incorporated into today’s buildings. ASHRAE and its members must take an active role in the ongoing training, engagement and action toward reducing the gap between design, construction and operations. This presentation will explore what ASHRAE is doing to achieve effective operational performance and operator experience, that is good for buildings, good for those who live and work within those building and good for the planet.
