Cardno facility assessment expert to speak at inaugural efficiency and energy management expo

​Office Manager and Cardno Principal Robin St. Charles will speak at the first annual Building Efficiency and Energy Management (BEEM) Expo on May 4 in Chicago.

His topic, Integrating Condition Assessment and Energy Auditing, will address how growing demand for energy management services—auditing, recommissioning, etc—has led to an integrated approach for vital services that increases the utility of field teams and the value to facility and asset-portfolio managers when boots-on-the-ground solutions are required for facilities management. Integrating multiple improvement goals with facility condition assessments and other observation-based activities reduce overall costs and often improve data quality because of the integrated nature of the field team.

Organized by Professional Network Group International (PNG), the inaugural BEEM Expo will bring together facility owners and operators in the commercial, industrial, and retail industries throughout North America to share their experiences and perspectives in facility management. The gathering will engage attendees with case studies, collective best practices, and the latest innovations and trends for managing buildings better. Based in Montreal, PNG is a strategic networking company that connects business leaders through industry-specific events.

Robin’s 25 years of facility management experience extends from facility investment policy and planning to maintenance and repair operations. He has worked with the US Navy, US Marine Corps, the National Park Service, and private-sector entities to improve their operational performance and facility investment decisions through infrastructure condition assessments, material supply initiatives, preventive maintenance program improvements, computerized maintenance management system implementations, and preparing business case analyses for facility maintenance and sustainability issues. He also develops technical guidance and training for clients to sustain and institutionalize facility management efficiency improvements.
