Sustainable Building Operations & Maintenance Guidelines Scope This guideline is intended to help Facilities Management and Planning to maintain and operate the buildings in the most efficient and sustainable way possible with current resources. This includes monitoring and maintenance of mechanical systems to ensure efficient and safe operation, fuel selection and monitoring for consumption, and cleaning operations related to process and products employed to maintain a clean and healthy building. This will also include future fixture selection for bathrooms, lighting and other applications to ensure they are the most efficient possible. Performance Metric Babson will monitor energy consumption in these locations to compare usage to past performance as well as overall performance at peer institutions. From a cleaning perspective we will monitor the use of chemicals and processes to maximize our use of green certified products and chemical-free procedures. Goal Energy use consumption will meet Energy Star criteria. Green products use equal to 90% or more for cleaning purposes. Procedures and Strategies Energy Buildings use Natural Gas and not Oil for heat Energy management system controls to mechanical room level as a minimum. Building has independent meters for gas, electric and water to allow us to monitor and measure consumption Mechanical equipment has failure alarms/warnings so we know when things are broken and need repair if not otherwise detected Building HVAC system utilizes set back schedules & motion sensing controls to minimize energy use when spaces are unoccupied. Maintain a PM program for mechanical equipment. Use of CFL and LED bulbs in light fixtures Housekeeping Use ionized water for cleaning Utilization of equipment for floor scrubbing that uses ionized water and no chemicals for cleaning Use Green Seal chemicals as needed Minimize the use of non-green seal products as much as possible. Provide and maintain a dual mat system for building entrances to minimize introduction of dirt to the interior of buildings and help IAQ. Responsible Parties Energy Andy Moutinho, Assistant Director, Trades and Utilities Bruce Sutter, Energy Manager Josh Greenwood, Energy Manager Housekeeping Stephen Tolley, Assistant Director, Grounds, Building Services & Sustainability Romeo Lopez, Manager, Building Services Aaron Masterson, Assistant Manager, Building Services Time Period These guidelines were adopted January 1, 2012 and will apply into the future until a newer standard is developed.
