Industry Information

NCBC: 2016 National Conference On Building Commissioning
National Conference on Building Commissioning 2016 to be held May 16-18, 2016 in Indian Wells, CA. will focus on technical delivery of the commissioning process, building systems integration, business and marketing challenges, using monitoring/measurement and data analysis, and teamwork relationships. The theme this year, “Fire and Ice” will illuminate some of the most significant resource and efficiency challenges faced by the building community today, through the experience of building owners and commissioning providers – energy, water and the value of whole building commissioning. How does commissioning contribute to resource efficiency? California is a most appropriate place to explore these issues, where energy and water are both in short supply and policymakers are working to balance growth, building codes, energy regulation and resource management. This year’s excellent array of peer-reviewed speakers will conduct interactive sessions and panel discussions to address subjects ranging from the “big picture” to “How To” sessions.
