Transforming Your Building from Brown to Green with FDD and MBCx


Most commercial real estate buildings are privately owned and minimally managed. Achieving and maintaining a well operating building is more than minimizing occupant complaints about temperature. Learn how Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) can be installed on even a minimalist controls system and realize enough savings to pay for the service and more. We will also discuss how we can utilize the system to perform Monitoring Based Commissioning (MBCx) on components after hours so that maintenance staff can shift from being reactive to proactive.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon leaving this course students will understand what FDD is and what value it provides.

  • Students will know that FDD is another tool at their disposal for managing efficiency in mechanical systems.

  • Students will learn that some software tools can go farther into controls and be used as remote commissioning tools.

  • Students will relate to the balance between the service and the need to take action on the recommendations that the software identifies.
