Continuous Commissioning® Workshop
Hosted by Texas A&M Energy Systems Laboratory
The trademarked Continuous Commissioning® (CC®) process, developed by the ESL, focuses on the optimization of public, commercial, and institutional building operations. The CC® process is the most complete form of existing building commissioning (EBCx), incorporates and extends the best of EBCx practices, integrates cost effective measures, including operational strategies and processes, as well as cutting-edge tools and technologies developed by the Energy Systems Laboratory. The CC® process optimizes operation of the building as it is used and does not restrict itself to design intent. It increases energy efficiency, increases system reliability, reduces O&M costs, improves building comfort, trains the operating staff, and increases their knowledge and skills and fail-proofs most behavioral shortcomings. The CC® process produces rapid payback, without significant capital investments. The CC® process has been implemented in hundreds of buildings around the world in various climates.
Joseph T. Martinez , PCC® , Energy Systems Laboratory, TEES
Mr. Martinez has over 24 years of experience in energy conservation and energy analysis in both the private and public sectors. He has provided applied-research engineering services and led many projects that have saved millions of dollars, and provided countless training sessions.
At the ESL, Mr. Martinez is a Continuous Commissioning® technical manager of several major projects. Among those are the Alamo Community College District, for which he also serves as the full Energy Manager, the DFW International Airport, the Houston Airport System (IAH and HOU airports), the United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), and the two City of Dallas LoanSTAR projects (of over 50 buildings).
Mr. Martinez is also providing technical assistance and instruction to Continuous Commissioning® Licensees. He has developed the trend data analysis tool (T-DAT), an innovative software Commissioning Tool to increase field engineer productivity. Additional software is in design for future deployment.
