National Electrical Safety Code

This IEEE regulatory product sets the standard of care for construction, operation and maintenance of power and telecommunication infrastructure and overlaps in significant areas with the National Electrical Code, a regulatory product developed by the National Fire Protection Association. We advocate in the NESC and collaborate closely with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee. [Comments on next revisions are due July 1, 2019] #StandardsNewJersey

Standards Indiana

During 2019 we are rolling out our user-interest collaboration architecture to school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated healthcare systems in all 50-states. To lower #TotalCostofOwnership for the emergent #SmartCampus every state will have to be managed according to its history, culture, governance regime, asset-base and network of expertise. #StandardsIndiana

Data Center Standards

Open-IX is a self-regulated community inspired to develop critical Data Center and IXP technical and operating standards in a framework that works for everyone.  The project is noteworthy because so much of information and communications technology develops in ad hoc consortia or in the wild, wild west of open source.

INSTALLING AND MAINTAINING HEAT TRACING SYSTEMS

'Tis the season for collapsing roofs and frozen pipes in the northern hemisphere. NECA 202 is one of a constellation of interdependent consensus documents that set the standard or care for the installation of these systems which work nearly invisibly in on roofing systems and piping systems exposed to low temperatures. #StandardsMaryland

Existing Building Code

A large tranche of square footage in education facilities does not comply with swiftly-moving building codes very long.  Rehabilitation project scopes must be crafted so that legacy infrastructure systems are made code compliant along with new square footage. The IEBC sets broad safety parameters for most dimensions of this type of rehabilitation activity. The BCAC meeting April 11-12th will curate IEBC proposals ahead of the ICC Group B Code Hearings. #StandardsIllinois

High-Performance Green Buildings

ASHRAE contributes mightily to the tributary we call the regulatory "stream"; not the least of which is the stream of prescriptive energy conservation concepts.   Technical committees developing ASHRAE consensus documents release public review documents in 30-to-90 day intervals. Another two redlines have been released for public review. [Comments are due March 3rd through March 18th]

ISO 50004 | Energy Management Systems

We have an opportunity to comment on a spinoff from parent energy standard-- ISO 50001 Energy Management--which offers the US education industry opportunities to reduce #TotalCostofOwnership by reducing redundancies and destructive competition. It is a performance standard--one that makes the US compliance culture uneasy--but offers practical benchmarks for self-regulating industries. [Comments are due March 4th] #StandardsGeorgia

Lighting Theatre and Auditorium Spaces

The electrotechnical complexity of instructional and information storage spaces is gathering pace with the emergence of massive open online curriculum and the growth of educational campuses as the locus for entertainment. A typical design guideline and construction contract specification will contain requirements that reference IES consensus documents that are part of a fabric of consensus documents that move quickly. #StandardsKentucky

Fire Protection System Testing Intervals

While the whole of NFPA 72 provides a foundation for safety on the emergent #SmartCampus, we continue giving priority to the prescriptive inspection, testing and maintenance requirement of Chapter 14 where, in our view, "market-making" by incumbent interests is raising #TotalCostofOwnership.
