Retro-commissioning is a process to improve an existing building’s performance. Using a whole-building systems approach, retro-commissioning identifies operational improvements that will increase occupant comfort, save energy, and provide cost savings. The process can be performed alone or with a retro t project. Retro-commissioning (RCx) offers managers a customizable plan and tools to evaluate how a facility is currently operating, identify specific opportunities for improvement, and then how to implement solutions for optimal efficiency.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a Training Certificate and have better knowledge and skills to develop a plan that results in energy saving for their existing buildings. Participants will also learn about financial incentives that are available for utility rate payers that can offset the up-front costs of retro-commissioning a building.

Seminar Topics Include:
- Establishing a team, prioritizing and setting goals, defining a scope of work, implementation of the (RCx) plan
- Establishing energy conservation measures
- Measurement and verification

Who Should Attend
- Current and previous BOC course participants
- Facility managers currently working in buildings/facilities of varying sizes (e.g. Commercial, Industrial, Military)
- Energy and plant managers
- Property owners and managers
