2012 – April’s Meeting Review

April Meeting Review

By Leslie Herndon, Greenscapes, Inc.

Tick, tick, tick….As timekeeper Rob monitored the game clock, the April meeting attendees had to make their case for the best current advances in facility management technologies and new ideas.  Announcer Dan kept the game commentary running as each table defended their best idea.  Solar installations, building envelope commissioning, interior wall systems,  mobile workspaces, window films, roof restoration/renovation, and BAS system automation were just some of the ideas brought to the floor.  Each team had to be on their game because the shot clock only had 45 seconds on it to defend your idea before Rob called time (with his very loud horn!)  As the playoffs progressed, 3 tables emerged to battle it out in a 2 minute sudden death.   At the end of the game, conversion of night cleaning to day cleaning and a new bird control system for commercial buildings emerged victorious!  Congratulations to Teams 1 and 4!  And a special thanks to Dan Williams and the rest of the programs committee for an inventive and informative meeting!
