recently completed Integrative Genomics Building (IGB) Laboratory on the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) campus, a 77,000 square foot facility
consisting of wet/dry laboratories and office spaces, is helping the University
of California (UC) meet aggressive sustainability goals through efficient
design and prioritized ongoing operational performance. The project has
eliminated onsite carbon emissions from space and water heating. Combined with passive design strategies, the
IGB includes innovative elements such as heat pumps, heat recovery, radiant
floors, chilled beams, integrated HVAC-lighting occupancy controls, and plug
load controls. However, adding technology to the building system does not
automatically result in efficient operations—high performance buildings often increase complexity, require
integration of many systems, and demand additional operational resources. Using
the IGB as a case study, this presentation will discuss new construction commissioning
(NCCx) and ongoing commissioning (OCx) challenges in all-electric buildings. The speakers will introduce the need for a new
management approach to operating buildings through an ongoing process to
resolve operating problems, improve comfort, optimize energy use, and identify future
