Tag, You’re It! How Do You Think “Semantic Tagging Will Affect Cx?”


Naming conventions plague the building design and construction industry. ASHRAE and industry partners have formed a committee to develop national and international standardized meaning and tagging that will ease the language barrier across building automation and control platforms. The resulting proposed Standard, ASHRAE 223P “Designation and Classification of Semantic Tags for Building Data,” is scheduled for public review later in 2018. BCxA staff conversations with the developers indicate there is interest in having CxPs weigh-in on the value of semantic tagging in the commissioning process…we want to hear from you!

    This is a great idea for making it possible to access systems and points between systems, for example between groups of buildings or buildings on the same campus. Labor saving if done right when applying analytics to BAS systems.

    This should be a huge benefit to large Users interested in applying FDD and Analytics (Universities, Campuses, and/or multiple locations nationwide /worldwide); benefits of cost-savings and reduced time/effort to implementation. Even if a User is not ready to implement, specifying this ASHRAE Standard (once Approved), or even the predecessor(s), will assure New Construction and Major Renovation Projects can take advantage of these savings in the future.
