Recommissioning (RCx) improves buildings by creating energy savings and making buildings more comfortable for their occupants.

Recommissioning (RCx) improves buildings by creating energy savings and making buildings more comfortable for their occupants. It has been well documented that the practice of Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) will reduce operating costs while improving the quality of the indoor environment.

BOMA in partnership with CIET, will host this one-day workshop that will provide participants with a practical approach to EBCx, with a specific focus on the elements of a robust investigation. 
The Introduction to Recommissioning (RCx) course will be facilitated by Ari Spiegel, a seasoned EBCx professional and will provide example case studies from the variety of commercial and institutional building types.  A strong focus will be placed upon operational efficiency of HVAC systems.

Virtual classroom training aims to give participants an experience similar to what they would expect through in-person training. The courses will be hosted on the GoToTraining platform with dedicated time for all of your questions. Like in-person training, breaks will be taken and you will have regular polls and interactive elements integrated throughout. For the best possible experience, we recommend that all participants connect by computer rather than on cell phones.
