BOMA/Chicago's High-Performance Sustainable Building Practices course is one of three BOMI-HP designation courses. If you already have your RPA or FMA, you can earn the enhanced designation by taking this class and HP Principles and HP Investments. You can also earn the stand-alone HP designation by taking these three courses. HP Practices will be the next course offered over a two week period on September 13, 14, 15, 21 and 22.

This course identifies the critical no- and low-cost sustainable initiatives that every building professional can immediately implement at their building. Key topic areas include: building interior practices, sustainable facades and roofs systems, HVAC and commissioning processes, high-performance lighting implementation, building electrical usages, durables and consumables incentives, building water operations, renewable energy methods, sustainable maintenance procedures, tenant engagement approaches and op-ex finance and portfolio management.

By taking this course, students will learn how to:

  • Implement benchmarking protocols and strategies to improve operational performance and reduce energy demand and use.
  • Explore sustainable opportunities to improve building operations in areas including energy, lighting, water use, building envelope, waste management and other critical areas.
  • Build an effective sustainable operating plan with a focus on purchasing, green cleaning, indoor air quality, fundamentals for interior and exterior maintenance and vendor management.
  • Engage stakeholders, including occupants, vendors, owners and investors, to ensure adoption and full integration of high-performance initiatives.
