Building Operator Training

0

The Saskatchewan Environmental Society Building Operator Training (BOT) Program is designed to introduce custodians and building operators to energy conservation principles, new technologies, and facility retrofits that will save energy and money. For example, new lighting technologies use 60 to 70% less energy. Occupant awareness can reduce utility costs in a building 5 to 10%.

BOT is a series of three half-day seminars (or one full day) with on-site presentations comprising of four different modules. All participants receive a reference manual of helpful information to refer to at work. The modules can be tailored to the specific needs of the group, adding or recombining topics as needed. The training sessions can also serve as an opportunity for technical staff to solve problems that may be specific to their facilities.

  • A series of seminars explaining the impact of custodians and building operators on overall energy use
  • Simple methods to reduce consumption
  • A reference manual of helpful information to refer to at work
  • On-site presentations
  • Seminars can be provided as half or full day events

  • Advantages and benefits of energy and water efficient equipment
  • Energy efficient operation of building and its components
  • Discussion of proposed or recent retrofits and how they will affect building occupants and operators (where applicable)

Participants in Building Operator Training Workshops will learn the following:

Lighting:

  • the difference between demand and consumption, and how each impact energy and cost savings
  • advantages, disadvantages, applications and operational savings for various types of lighting

Electrical Equipment:

  • what load scheduling is and how it applies to energy and cost savings
  • advantages, disadvantages, applications and operational savings for various appliances
  • energy efficient operation of compressed air systems, motors and drives, car plugs and other equipment

Water:

  • the connection between water conservation and energy conservation
  • water efficient selection and operation of showers, toilets, faucets and other fixtures
  • energy efficient operation of domestic hot water systems
  • water efficient operation of outdoor irrigation and sprinklers, and options for landscaping

HVAC:

  • overall operation of Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling Systems
  • energy efficient operation and trouble shooting for thermostats, fans, motor controls, building automation systems, heat recovery, condensing heating systems
  • Indoor Air Quality as it relates to energy efficiency
  • advantages, disadvantages, and applications of ground source heat pumps and solar technologies
