BCxA Conference News – Ongoing Commissioning: Changing the Building Industry


Ongoing Commissioning (OCx) is not new to our industry, but the time has come for us to formalize the practice as we strive for excellence in energy efficiency, reduce facilities’ energy footprint, and improve building performance consistency – by using OCx as a well-defined best practice.

Join us as Copper Tree Analytics sponsors a full-day track of speakers, interactive discussions, and an owners’ forum to gain deeper technical and market perspectives on current OCx practices and solutions.

Here’s the rundown, starting with the track’s first session – audience participation is highly encouraged:

  • > Presentation and interactive discussion with the primary authors of the BCxA’s forthcoming publication, OCx Best Practices.
  • > A portfolio owner and a Cx provider unite to present their perspectives on “virtual commissioning” – is this concept a myth, or is it actually the future?
  • > A panel of diverse owners tell how and why they have established ongoing commissioning (OCx), or monitoring based commissioning (MBCx) programs, in their facilities.
  • > A case study of “the greenest urban office building in the world” presents data, analysis, equipment issues and control failures, corrections, and takeaways for the future in terms of embedded energy, cost recovery and whole building savings – supporting a profitable relationship between owners, tenants, utilities and investors.
  • > Copper Tree’s Sunny Sandhu ends the day with her exploration of how advanced energy and building analytics software technology is unlocking the power of BAS data, an overview of fault detection & diagnostics (FDD) concepts and tools for measuring portfolio-level and building-level energy consumption.
