CIET was recently given the opportunity to develop and deliver a customized program for building maintainers in Canada’s North. This 4-day training was delivered in Rankin Inlet to a group of maintainers from across Nunavut involved in operating a variety of buildings – from community and health centres to schools, small colleges and offices – in different areas.
The training centered around fundamental aspects of building systems, operating sequences, core energy concepts and best O&M practices. Participants did exercises aimed at building a good level of understanding of the Building Automation System (BAS), its role in maintaining efficiency operations, and the importance of applying scheduling, setpoint and maintenance strategies to allow for better remote monitoring of their buildings.
The end goal of this training for Nunavut and, in turn, its building maintainers, is to help reduce the territory’s energy and carbon footprint by implementing retrofits and other EE measures. We are delighted to have met this group of dedicated professionals, and to have contributed to their future success in meeting their objectives. We are already looking forward to the second edition in the fall!
