Fundamental decisions made by building design and construction teams have long-term impacts on building performance measures controlled by building operations teams. The disconnect between these two teams during the two distinct phases of a building’s lifecycle can be avoided through integration of O+M teams in the BD+C process.
Early engagement of O+M team members secures buy-in on decisions. An opportunity is presented for better design and construction informed by those who are ‘stuck with’ these decisions later in the daily building operations. This transforms O+M staff into green advocates, rather than adversaries and can present unique holistic strategy and even budgetary solutions for greener buildings. Design and construction teams also have the opportunity to learn how their decisions have long-term impacts, thus applying that knowledge to future building projects. Addresses the multiple levels of education needed for various stakeholders in order to inform the BD+C process through a deeper understanding of LEED EB: O+M and increase the gap between the two phases of a building’s life cycle.
