LHB’s Kevin Holm, AIA, and Troy Miller, AIA, will present “What are the latest building systems, material and energy design innovations?” at the Midwest Facility Masters Conference.  The conference will take place at the Kalahari Resort and Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. The date and time of the presentation on “What are the latest building systems, material and energy design innovations?” is yet to be determined.

Session Description:  You can’t seem to find the time to study or research the current trends in facility design and management? No worries, we understand. Building systems and materials are constantly changing and evolving with lots of new technologies, applications and costs. What makes sense for one district may not be applicable to every district.

1. LED lighting and support system benefits

2. Solar arrays and other alternative energy system analysis

3. Window and roofing system performance parameters

4. Mechanical system performance analysis

5. Safety and security strategies

6. Building code changes

This presentation will provide a forum to see the opportunities and the challenges. We hope through the discussions that you will become aware of the various innovations and be able to ask questions that will help you prioritize which will provide the greatest benefit to your district.

LHB’s Kevin Holm, AIA, and Troy Miller, AIA, will present “The Maze of Managing and Verifying Building Operations and Performance” at the Midwest Facility Masters Conference. The conference will take place at the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. The date and time of the presentation on “The Maze of Managing and Verifying Building Operations and Performance” is yet to be determined.

Session Description:  The programs and services seem to be endless: Retro Commissioning, Buildings Benchmarks and Beyond (B3), Seasonal Management Review Programs, Infrared Testing, Code Management Analysis, Safe Schools, Health and Safety, and the list will continue to grow. What are all these programs and how can they help you:

  1. Prioritize deferred maintenance and operational choices
  2. Assist in budgeting and scheduling maintenance
  3. Coordinate a facilities evolution for implementing current teaching methodologies
  4. Address the changing expectation for technology.

This presentation will consider how to evaluate your facility needs from a variety of methods and programs. What is important is not the program or service, but what will the information allow you to accomplish the needs of the district, staff, students and taxpayers.

LHB’s Kevin Holm, AIA, and Troy Miller, AIA, and Kathy Miller will present “Organizational Collaboration: What are the Challenges to Stretching Every Dollar?” at the Midwest Facility Masters Conference. The conference will take place at the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. The date and time of the presentation on “Organizational Collaboration: What are the Challenges to Stretching Every Dollar?” is yet to be determined.

Session Description:  Each year there are discussions regarding school funding and the ongoing changes in education, but the needs continue to grow faster than funding. If districts are going  to capitalize on each opportunity to stretch their available funding, they will need leaders who understand the importance of constant collaboration and coordination. Administrative teams to work together to:

  1. Create a district-wide interest for sharing and brainstorming
  2. Instill a spending attitude which demonstrates the benefits of collaborating
  3. Take the time to understand the challenges of their teammates.

How can a relighting project benefit student health and classroom performance? Can a security assessment benefit classroom design? Will the selection of furniture improve the success of project based learning initiatives? What are the new roles and expectations of media center design?

When there’s passion to understand the pressures of your peer group and the challenges in the classroom, you will see the greatest potential for improvement: students, staff and facilities. This presentation will be a conversation between individuals that have experienced districts of sizes, locations, and conditions.
