High-performing buildings offer building owners and managers lower operating costs, potentially higher commercial tenant rents, and a higher resale value than traditional buildings. Additionally, in Washington, DC and in a growing number of other localities, buildings are required to meet energy performance targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Energy efficiency is a central component of creating such a building and achieving these outcomes. This document, generously prepared and donated by the AOBA Educational Foundation for IMT’s Building Innovation Hub, outlines the critical role operations and maintenance (O&M) play in increasing energy efficiency and adding value for property owners and their portfolios.
