Scientific Conservation, Inc. (SCI) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have announced they will collaborate to develop and deliver third-party applications to be integrated into LEED Online. LEED Online is used by project teams to submit documentation toward the certification of LEED projects.
As part of the technology agreement, facility managers will be able to use SCI’s SCIwatch™ technology through the LEED Online platform to enable automated fault detection for ongoing commissioning and predictive maintenance in commercial buildings. SCIwatch interfaces remotely with building management systems to analyze inputs, provide continuous visibility into building performance and maintenance needs, and identify operational anomalies causing energy waste, risk to equipment life, and impacts on occupant health. SCIwatch enables LEED projects to benefit from sustained energy efficiency, reduced maintenance expenses, and increased value of building portfolios.
“Building commissioning is an important strategy for efficient building performance. SCIwatch will make it even simpler for buildings to pursue a real-time, persistent approach to automated ongoing building commissioning,” said Scot Horst, senior vice president, LEED, USGBC.
