A Matter Of Opinion

Labor and energy

A few days ago, one poster alluded to...

a LEED certified building on SFCC's campus that is not being "managed" the way the contractor developed it because the Union will not train and effect the maintenance staff in the specified methods to make that building as energy efficient as possible.

I've looked into that and the SFCC facilities director is scratching his head. In fact, he tells me the energy-efficiency aspects of the sn-w'ey'-mn building at SFCC (the name is Inland Salish for "place of commerce") is entirely automated. No "human interface" is necessary.

If anyone has more information on that, I'd like to hear some details. Or if it's unfounded, I'd like to clear that up as well.
