The Total Building Commissioning Process - Complete Webinar

Course Overview: Commissioning (Cx) and Re- or retro-commissioning (RCx), or the process of ensuring that a new or existing building’s performance continues to meet or exceed its design over time, is increasingly the target of government policy and the beneficiary of market forces. New Federal, State and Local mandates, in conjunction with voluntary, market-based standards, are poised to transform the Cx/RCx marketplace. What began as a tool to ensure that commercial building owners get their money’s worth from design and construction professionals, commissioning is now known to be the most cost-effective measure available for reducing energy use, lowering operating costs and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions in buildings. A recent meta-analysis by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that Re/Retro-commissioning yields a median 16% energy savings with a payback time of 1.1 years for a cash-on-cash return of 91%. The public sector, in an effort to both promote and secure the environmental, social and economic benefits of energy efficiency, are incorporating Cx/RCx into new policies. Increasingly, Cx/RCx is the direct focus of government policy aimed at boosting energy efficiency in the built environment. Over the past decade, a series of Federal laws, executive orders and other regulations have resulted in requirements for commissioning and retro-commissioning in all Federal buildings. The results of these policies have been to improve Federal energy management, while providing an instance of leadership-by-example that has increased the profile of Cx/RCx elsewhere. As a result, Cx/RCx is now the beneficiary of government or utility financial incentives or even the force of law. Ultimately, Cx/RCx has the potential to save building owners and operators more than $30 billion a year in energy costs by 2030.Continuing to underutilize this cost-effective quality assurance tool could not only be unlawful, but bad business. This course shall describe the Total Building Commissioning Process. Case studies that followed LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning guidelines for newly built and renovated facilities for the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security shall be presented and analyzed. Perceptions and expectations of the Cx process from the perspective of all stake-holders; owners, designers, contractors, and commissioning specialists shall be presented and discussed. The purpose is to illustrate that there are varying levels of agreement on “What Commissioning Is and Is Not.” Through the use of audience interaction, the instructor will illustrate that LEED Commissioning does not establish the final boundaries and benefits for the overall Total Building Commissioning process. The overall potential energy conservation and utility cost-saving benefits that could be captured go beyond LEED and enhance our country’s ability to achieve the goal of energy independence. Through lecture, written material, class discussion and interactive activities, students will learn the following material: Definitions of Commissioning (Cx) and Retro-Commissioning (RCx) The Cx & RCx Process – Similarities and Differences Objectives & Benefits Requirements & Attributes of a Certified Cx Provider Cx Standards, Regulations & References LEED and Cx Myths, Reality & Managing Expectations (Case Studies) Learning Objectives: Learning Objective 1: At the end of this course, participants will be familiar with the Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning process, applicable codes and standards, and be able to differentiate between the two in terms of similarity and differences. Learning Objective 2: At the end of this course, participants will understand the overall objectives, benefits, and potential results of the Commissioning process and how this relates to improved building operational efficiencies. Learning Objective 3: At the end of this course, participants will be able to distinguish through case study examination the myths from the reality of this process to include examining stakeholder expectations, contract language and issue resolution techniques. Learning Objective 4: At the end of this course, participants will become familiar with sustainability and energy conservation requirements as it relates to commissioning by examination of applicable legislative directives, Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC), Standards and Guidelines, and Building Rating Systems (Such as LEED, Green Globes).

Historically, we’ve seen agencies move from sealed bidding to the best value continuum, using both the low price technically acceptable and tradeoff processes. Now what? What factors does the Government consider in determining the best procurement strategy? How does Industry make an informed decision on whether to pursue contract opportunities under the various procurement strategies? More important, how does industry submit a winning proposal, a proposal that will be deemed by the evaluation board(s) to provide the “best value” to the Government, and an ultimate contract award to your firm, whether that be through sealed bidding, LPTA, or tradeoff processes? This on-line course will provide you an overview of the Federal Source Selection process, making it work for both Government and Industry, focusing on: What is Best Value Source Selection, versus Sealed Bidding, and When the Methodology is Used…Low Price Technically Acceptable vs. Tradeoff vs. Other Best Value contract actions; DoD and Civilian Agency Specific Approaches; Government Request for Proposal Development, Source Selection Evaluation Factors, the Evaluation Process and Award; Preparing Industry Proposal for Success…Do’s and Don’ts; What May Cause Protests and Chances of Prevailing; and Future of the Use of Source Selection methodologies and trends, as viewed by DoD and Civilian agencies. Participants will achieve the following understanding after taking this course: FAR, DoD and Civilian Agency FAR supplement guidance on Source Selection Typical best value solicitation content/requirements Preparing a winning proposal based on greater understanding of the particular source selection approach being used Analyzing various evaluation scenarios How to get the most out of a debriefing Protests…do you have a valid case? Learning Objectives: Learn about Best Value Source Selection, when the methodology should be used, and the pros and cons of Low Priced Technically Acceptable versus Tradeoff versus Other Best Value contract actions. Gain a deeper understanding of Best Value Specific Approaches used across DoD and in Civilian Agencies, what is changing, and what that means to industry.

Mind the Gaps and Strengthen the Team - Teaming Agreements, Joint Ventures and Mentor-Protégé Relationships Webinar

ORIGINALLY PRESENTED NOVEMBER 5, 2013 Course Presenters: Marty Ray,VP of Strategy & Planning, ZAPATA Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs Course Overview: This webinar provides an overview of strategies to build successful teams to win Department of Defense (DOD) contracts in today’s competitive environment. For the past decade, DOD has made significant changes in the way it procures goods and services. Many of these changes have resulted in contract requirements that are more complex: larger in scope, size, dollar amount and often geographically dispersed. Although this has helped the government cope with the reduction in the acquisition workforce through fewer contracts, it has generated requirements that are out of the reach of many small business concerns. In response to these changes, contractors are frequently forming “Teams” in their quest to satisfy government requirements and present a “Best Value” solution to the procuring agency. This session will focus on ways businesses can build successful teams to strengthen their proposals and resulting work.

This webinar is not only for design professionals who want to maximize coverage under their own professional liability insurance policies, but also for all participants in the design and construction process that contract for or provide professional design services. Participants will become familiar with the coverage typically afforded by design professionals’ professional liability insurance, as well as key exclusions that limit coverage. We’ll discuss the “claims-made” nature of the professional liability policy and its ramifications for claims reporting under the policy. Emphasis will be given to common misconceptions about professional liability insurance, using real-world examples and claims as illustrations. Our goal will be to make participants better able to make effective use of their own policies and also to assist them in drafting contracts with attainable, appropriate requirements for design professionals’ professional liability insurance.
