- Construction Spend
University of Michigan 1855
We follow the construction spend rate of the US education industry; using the US Census Bureau Construction Spending figures released the first day of every month. We encourage our colleagues in the education facilities industry to respond to Census Bureau-retained data gathering contractors in order to contribute to the accuracy of the report.
N.B. We have migrated our “Model Building Code” content into to this session starting this month.

- Who is the “User-Interest”?
The University of Michigan
Who it is. Why it matters.
The Standards Michigan platform routinely refers to the “User-Interest” in the global standards system and the dominance of “niche verticals” that determine the cost of education communities for the final fiduciary. Today at 11 AM/ET we drill deeper into this claim by reviewing the roster of a few technical committees administered by standards setting organizations. The dominance of every interest group over the user-interest will be in plain sight. You will also see that the dominance of all other stakeholders over the user-interest is not the fault of the niche verticals. It is the fault of the user-interest and may be an unresolvable “wicked problem”.
ANSI Essential Requirements: Due process requirements for American National Standards
The Impact of E-Waste / Student Art Guide
Certain requirements must be met for recycling to be economically feasible and environmentally effective. These include an adequate source of recyclates, a system to extract those recyclates from the waste stream, a nearby factory capable of reprocessing the recyclates, and a potential demand for the recycled products. These last two requirements are often overlooked—without both an industrial market for production using the collected materials and a consumer market for the manufactured goods, recycling is incomplete and in fact only “collection”.
Today at 11 AM/E we examine the state of best practice literature – including government regulations — that apply to education communities.
California Polytechnic Pomona
Overview of codes and standards relevant to the food service enterprises in K-12 schools, college and university student housing, athletic venues and university-affiliated healthcare systems.
International Electrotechnical Commission
Today we approach the wicked problem of leading practice discovery in cloud technologies generally; and the prospect for education communities minimizing costs associated with cloud vendor lock-in.

Because so much of the #SmartCampus transformation involves electrotechnologies, we walk-through live public consultation notices pertaining to the safety and sustainability agenda of education communities. Our meeting today coincides with the day of two IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee teleconferences at 14:00 Central European time and 2:00 PM Eastern time in the Americas.

Today at 11 AM/ET we host an open agenda for consensus products setting the standard of care across the full span of technologies relevant to the safety and sustainability agenda of the education facility industry. On “continuous maintenance” standards development platforms, for example, exposure drafts are open for comment for as little as 30 to 45 days. There is scant time to respond to the call for public comment. We set aside one session per month to review and respond.

Review of all consensus, consortia and open source codes, standards and regulations regarding energy production and conservation relevant to the education facility industry.
Faculty and staff in the education industry in all nations provide basic research, application research in energy technologies. The “cities-within-cities” we call the #SmartCampus” also provide crucibles for new testing new technologies as well as provide energy load for utilities operating under all ownership regimes.

An update on our collaboration with other like-minded units in the education industry in the US and other nations. In most cases we conform to participation requirements set by ANSI US Technical Advisory Groups but we also have liaison with other universities in the European Union who conform to the participation requirements of their own national standards bodies.

University of Wisconsin Stadium Elevator
Many education communities have 100’s of elevators and escalators. This is a difficult space for driving costs down (because of strong manufacturer and labor presence) but we will give the “old college try”
