BOMA Greater Charlotte commemorated the very first Engineering Committee luncheon on Thursday 6/24 in Ballantyne Corporate Park. In early 2021, the BOMA Board recruited market leaders from various CRE firms and collaborated with peer BOMA Chapters to form the Engineering Committee. With a clear goal in mind, Charlotte engineering leaders held monthly "Shop Talks," formed recruitment partnerships, and created a BOMA Engineering Webpage. At the first in-person luncheon, BOMA Engineering members enjoyed lunch from Reid's Fine Foods sponsored by Environmental Diversified Services (EDS) and learned about EPIC's Sustainably Integrated Buildings and Sites (SIBS) program from Dr. Rob Cox.
The Center for Sustainably Integrated Buildings and Sites (SIBS) has spent the last decade working with public and private partners focused on how to better manage energy consumption in commercial buildings. One of the major efforts within the Center over the last several years has been the development of a training program named Energy Connect (presentation attached). This program has educated building mechanics and staff on key concepts in "energy troubleshooting." This effort has led to the development of a robust ongoing commissioning program led by the mechanics themselves. The presentation focused on how this program has been deployed at Atrium Health throughout the Charlotte metro region. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
BOMA engineering members also toured a new high rise building by Northwood Office featuring shared amenity space, touchless wave technology on restroom and building entrance doors, digital directory in the lobby, smart elevators, and phenomenal views. It was a great first meeting with many more to come!
