HVAC 360 - Episode 059 - Lessons Learned: Coordination

This week on HVAC 360, I share some of my lessons learned from the field by the review of one of the most asked questions as a commissioning authority, "What is your number one issue?"  To that I have to say coordination, which is the topic of choice this week.  Not only do I go into why I feel this is the number one issue, but I also share some of my lessons learned to help engineers produce a better set of documents.  If you like this episode please share with a friend or two.

HVAC 360 - Episode 052 - Maintenance Access

In this special one-year anniversary of HVAC 360 I talk about the often neglected aspect of maintenance access. Through the life of the building this is ultimately going to make or break the building design.  No amount of high-tech equipment will protect your building over it's life than the ability for the operations staff to properly take care of it.  Hope you take something away from this episode and if you do please share it.
