Greg Jourdan gave this presentation March 2, 2012 Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee during the Eastern Chapter Board meeting.

Greg discussed DDC Controls-Networks-BacNet vs Lon vs. Tridium. His presentation discussed solutions to bringing multiple DDC controls vendors products under one software control scheme without changing the hardware I/O (inputs and outputs). Greg presented an informative program on the cloud and how that technology is being used to support multiple systems and locations to a central user. Greg stressed the importance of a dashboard for every system to instantly look at building performance, measure the result and be able to respond quickly to changing conditions. Greg also stressed the importance of re-commissioning your facilities at least every 5 years to ensure the systems and assets installed are still performing at desired levels and achieving intended results.
