Building Coordinators Network Welcome
Building Coordinators Network Meeting Agenda April 13, 2006 Tornado Anniversary – Rod Lehnertz Welcome – Kelli Gray, IMU Building Coordinator North Chilled Water River Crossing – Chris Varo Building Access Controls Update – Dennis Rublaitus & Doug Eltoft Opportunities to Conserve Energy – Chuck McBrearty & Janet Razbadouski
Chilled Water River Crossing Link east to west campus chilled water distribution systems currently separated by the Iowa River.
Chilled Water River Crossing The project is central to accomplishing one of the three main objectives of UI’s Energy Conservation and Management Strategic Plan: Reliability Conservation Sustainability
Chilled Water River Crossing Chilled Water is used primarily for building cooling Central Plant Concept – East Campus (North Chilled Water Plant) – West Campus (West Campus & Newton Road Chilled Water Plants) East and West Campus chilled water distribution loops have operated independently
Chilled Water River Crossing Increased demand on East Campus due to changing demands, recent remodeling, acquisitions and new buildings. West CampusEast Campus Capacity: 23,000 Tons 35,000 Tons (2008) 2006 Peak Demand: 20,000 Tons Capacity: 7,000 Tons 2006 Peak Demand: 7,000 Tons
Chilled Water River Crossing Distance: 2/3 mile Pipe: 6600 linear feet

Chilled Water River Crossing Questions?
Southeast Utilities Road Closure
Campus Access Control Project Dennis Rublaitus, Project Manager, DCS Doug Eltoft, IT Director, College of Engineering
Campus Access Control Project
Select a new building access control vendor for: Any new access controlled doors Retrofitting existing access controlled doors
Campus Access Control Project December – RFQ responses received – RFQ responses evaluated January – Three vendors were selected Software House Lenel AMAG
Campus Access Control Project January – Three vendors were selected Software House Lenel AMAG
Campus Access Control Project February – Technical questions were developed and given to the three selected vendors March – On campus vendor presentations
Campus Access Control Project April – Technical software evaluation – Technical hardware evaluation May – Vendor selection
Campus Access Control Project Questions?
Opportunities to Conserve Energy Chuck McBrearty, IT Manager, Facilities Management Janet Razbadouski, Energy Engineer, Utilities & Energy Management
What you can do Encourage staff to turn computers, monitors and printers when they go home or leave the office for more than 1 hour (this could save up to 50% of the system’s yearly energy usage) Change monitor standby power options setting to 15 minutes or less Phase out CRT monitors and use more networked printers
Do the Math! IT equipment accounts for approximately 10% of the total electrical consumption on campus Approximately 25,000 computers on campus Saving $10 on energy consumption per computer will save the University $250,000 per year in energy costs
What Facilities Management is doing Remotely turn off all non-essential and not in use Facilities Management computers at 2am every day. Change monitor standby power options setting on all computers to 15 minutes. Deploying virtual servers to reduce energy consumption (4 servers in a single computer).
What Facilities Management is doing Monitor in sleep mode using 0 watts Monitor in normal mode using 33.6 watts
Computer and Energy Myths Having a screen saver on saves energy My computer will last longer if I leave it on Leaving computers on uses less energy than turning it off and on Turning off and on the monitor while the computer is turned on will “fry” the motherboard
Opportunities to Conserve Energy Questions?
The University of Iowa Energy Conservation and Management Strategic Plan Energy Conservation Objectives 10% Energy Reduction by 2013
10% Energy Reduction by 2013 HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS? One Strategy is to Implement Building Occupancy Schedules Have Implemented Schedules in 8 Buildings Plan to implement Schedules in 19 Additional Building in FY08
Building Occupancy Schedules Equivalent to Turning Thermostat Down at Night during Heating Season Turning Thermostat Up at Night during Cooling Season Turning Off Fans When Not Needed
Building Occupancy Schedules Implementation Criteria Cannot Jeopardize Research Mission of the University Maintains Occupant Comfort Levels Need to be able to Accommodate Changes in Scheduling Requirements
Role of Building Coordinators Assist Facilities Management in Obtaining Information on Building Operations Communicating Information to/from Building Occupants
What to Expect Meeting with Energy Management, Operations and Maintenance, Building Coordinators and other Department Representatives
Meeting Provide Energy Conservation Information to Building Occupants Determine Optimum Hours for Schedules Discuss Implementation Procedures and Update Procedures Opportunity to Discuss Issues/Problems in Building
